USA's Longest Yard Sale

Have you seen this?

The 127 Sale

659 miles of yard sales from Michigan to Alabama.

Do you live along or near the route? Have you gone before? I would love to go for a bit of a drive on August 6th and see what I may find!

What is your best yard sale treasure?


  1. They have an annual 100 mile yard sale here! We went last year and it was a lot of fun!

    I got a really neat hinged jewelry display that folds up to travel. It's about 2' x 3' when it's opened up with hooks for necklaces and bracelets and ledges for hanging earring cards. $5!

  2. I am familiar with it since it runs through a portion of my state (Georgia), but I've never been. I see it mentioned from time to time on local public television, or other weirdness that ends up on my TV. I think it sounds like massive fun, but I suspect finding the "the thing" might be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

    I've definitely never picked up a yard sale find like some that I see on Antiques Roadshow or Pickers. Best was probably a pair of wood barrel chairs in great condition for $1. Fabric was a hideous 70s orange, but they were very comfortable and I was later able to afford to reupholster them. Lots of happy hineys enjoyed the chairs for only a buck!
