The Worlds Longest Yard Sale

Get ready bargain shoppers!!  It's that time of year again...time for the worlds longest yard sale.  And there's loads of deals to be had. 

The yard sale runs straight through Kentucky and our area.  It is 675 Miles long and begins in Hudson, Michigan and runs through US 127 and ends in Gadsden, Alabama.  For those of you looking locally, you can start in Covington, Kentucky and go through Florence, Kentucky, Union, Kentucky and into Gallatin County and then on into the heart of the Bluegrass.  There are also many great yard sales in the neighborhoods located just off US 127 where more deals await.  The intent of the sale was to give travelers a reason to take the scenic route and boost local economies in counties and towns bypassed by the interstate highway system.

The yard sale begins August 4 and runs through August 7.  Let us know if you get any good deals.  The best deal we came across was an almost new oven/stove for 20$.  There was nothing wrong with it, the owner got a new flat top and needed to unload it.  Don't forget to haggle over prices...everything is negotiable!   And don't forget the bottled water!  Happy Shopping!
