127 Corridor Yard Sale

Help... wanted to start a current Forum... need advise asap. My girlfriend (Chicago,IL) and I (Asheville, NC) wanted to go meet in or around Danville, KY (5-hr drive for both) and hit the 127 Yard Sale... reading conflicting blogs about whether to go or not. Has anyone gone on the ENTIRE ROUTE and can advise a good place to try for 1st timers? Is one section better than the other? Trying to plan a trip for this August. Thanks.

Last year a firend and I did just the Ohio portion and it was very spotty. Not a whole lot of people involved-yet!

This year we are heading south and going to the "Unclaimed luggage" Store in AL first-can't wait!!!!

There is a thread going tagged under Kentucky saying not to do it, but LOTS of people disagree.

First, full disclosure: I'll be a vendor/seller for the first time this year at the 127 Yard Sale, Eagle Lake Convention Center just north of Lawrenceburg, KY (Anderson County). It's about 32 miles from Danville on, of course, U.S. 127 (Google Map it at 1006 Eagle Lake Rd, Lawrenceburg, KY‎). I sell mostly jewelry (vintage and original, artisan jewelry) and artisan totes, along with nice yard sale-type items - anything from vintage/collectible to new things. Can't speak for all of them, but I know a few of the vendors who have set up at Eagle Lake in years past. They are lovely people, who like to have fun and who sell neat items. Prices will vary from vendor to vendor, no doubt, but I'm sure there are bargains to be found. I have tried to price my yard sale items, as well as the artisan jewelry, very reasonably. Besides the convention center, I think the Frankfort/Lawrenceburg/Danville area has a LOT of yard sales every year. Yes, you'll find junk and, yes, you'll find treasures - just the nature of the beast. My advice is try out the area, stop by Eagle Lake (where you'll also find food and restrooms), and keep an open mind. It's beautiful country with friendly people. Can't go too wrong there. Hope you enjoy!

P.S. If hunger pangs strike while in or around Frankfort, KY, check out Casa Fiesta on U.S. 127, or hit I-64 East (right off U.S. 127), go about four miles, take the Frankfort/Versailles exit, turn right onto U.S. 60 and go about a mile to Miguel's (it's on the right). Looking for a casual tea room? Candleberry Tea Room is on Lousiville Road, which is very close to U.S. 127 - just a stone's throw. It's one of the top 100 tea rooms in the United States. It's not fussy - you can wear shorts and the like. Check out directions on candleberrytearoom.com.

anyone who says "don't go" is sadly mistaken. The sale is so much fun, so many neat things for sale. Yes, some junk....move on. Lots of great deals on lots of great stuff.

I live between Harrodsburg and Lawrenceburg,KY. There are LOTS of sales between the two and on to Frankfort, as well. This sale is what it is.....a yard sale, and many of them. Someone was complaining that it was just people cleaning out their houses and garages, but isn't that what a yard sale is??? It is what it is. If you like yard sales, you will love it. If not, don't come. There are a lot of flea market vendors set up in large lots, but many people like this, as well.
