Here I come WLYS

I'm so excited to say that I'm leaving for the World's Longest Yard Sale tomorrow. This is my first year going so I'm not sure what to expect, but from what I've seen on HGTV, I hope it will be a ton of fun. We're starting in Gadsden Alabama and hope to end up around the Tennessee/Kentucky  line. Our trip includes myself, my wonderful sweet mother and my lovely sister-in- law.


A hubcap in Grimsley, Tennessee lures shoppers. Most of the sellers are clustered along Route 127.
 
A seller organizes his wares at a sale in Beamsville, Ohio.
 
A seller in Frankfort, Kentucky offers competitive prices on chairs.
 
 
Bargains here we come!!!!

  8. I can only imagine the fun you will have. I hope the weather isn't too hot and sultry for your Mom. It would be a shame if she couldn't enjoy it. How lucky you are to have her to go with you. I can't wait to see your bargains! Diana
