Bargain hunters will think they’ve died and gone to yard-sale heaven!
Stretching an impressive 690 miles and passing through six states, the 27th annual World’s Longest Yard Sale snakes along the Highway 127 Corridor this August 3 to 6. Whether you start in the north (Addison, Mich.) or the south (Gadsden, Ala.), the four-day event makes an epic summer road trip with something for everyone, from antique treasures to farm equipment. But before you venture out, plan ahead: hotels along the route tend to fill up fast.
Tips for the avid yard-sale shopper:
- Make a budget and stick to it.
- Bring a tape measure so you don’t buy anything that won’t fit through the door.
- Pack a lunch and drink plenty of water.
- Don’t forget the sunscreen!
