Posted On August 03, 2012

yard sale(Undated) – It’s been dubbed the World’s Longest Yard sale and it takes place this weekend


The U.S. 127 Yard Sale extends some 690 miles from Addison, Michigan to Gadsden, Alabama. Included is a stretch of U.S. 127 through Boone, Gallatin, Carroll, and Owen counties.


The sale began Thursday and continues through Sunday.


Now in its 25th year, the goal of the yard sale is to pull people off the interstates and back into the heartland of rural, scenic America. The event encourages businesses and residents to participate by having yard sales, sidewalk sales and special promotions for a continuous stretch from one end of the sale route to the other.


Area bargain hunters can head to MainStrasse Village on Main Street in Covington, Kentucky where dozens of vendors will be set up. The sale is from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Friday. Vendors can rent a booth for $15 by calling (859) 491-0458.
