World's Longest Yard Sale - don't go!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I just returned from the "World's Longest Yard Sale" after seeing it on HGTV this year. Well, we researched the event as much as we could (on the internet) - made hotel reservations - a must! BUT, had no idea that there would be so much awful junk to paw through. (We have better things in our own garage!)

Anyway, we had flown from Southern California to Cincinatti and then drove the entire sale south from there. Often this is referred to as the 127 Sale. Because it is mostly on route 127 that goes through all of these states (we skipped Ohio). I guess it would be easier if you lived closer to the sale, we did meet a couple that drove from Colorado who were very disapponted like us.

It lasts from the first Thursday of August each year and goes through Sunday. It was a nice way to see the states we had never been to, but if you're looking for a "deal" - look at Ebay, much cheaper!
