This Massive Yard Sale Stretches 690 Miles Across the Country


If you love hunting for great deals, you'll need to take a trip to the world's largest yard sale. As its name suggests, the 127 Yard Sale takes place along U.S. 127, which stretches 600 miles from Addison, Mich. to Gadsden, Ala.

Organizers hold the massive even during the first weekend in August each year. The first sale took place 30 years ago in 1987. According to Chattanooga Now, Mike Walker started the sale as a way to get travelers to bypass interstates for the scenic routes of the rural highways.


During its first year, the sale ran from Covington, Ky. to Chattanooga, Tenn., but it's steadily grown with each passing year. Those who visit the 127 Yard Sale can find a little of everything. From antiques to gifts, knick-knacks and exciting arts and crafts, there's something for everyone. Each year attracts a new and varied list of roadside vendors.


While many people are only looking for things to purchase for themselves, some kind folks are thinking of others. One Ohio woman travels to the sale each year to buy Christmas gifts for those in need.


Regardless of your reason to go treasure hunting, the 127 Yard Sale is truly a sight to see. You can find out more information on the event here.
