The World's Longest Yard Sale

The “Worlds Longest Yard Sale,” also known as the Highway 127 Corridor Sale extends from a town in Alabama called Gadsden to just south of Ohio and Covington, Kentucky. This year the sale will be held from August 7-10, 2008. This sale is known to attract thousands of sellers and tens of thousands of visitors and a lot of people plan their excursions and getaways around this annual event.

The Highway 127 Corridor Sale, which is headquartered in Jamestown, Tennessee, has been around since 1987 when a county executive named Mike Walker had an idea bring tens of thousands of visitors off of the main highways and into the heartlands of the states of Kentucky and Tennessee. This event continues to grow not only in the number of collectors attracted to it, but with the number of vendors and sellers.
