Smitty found it at "The World's Longest Yard Sale," otherwise known as the "127 Sale," which is an enormous string of yard sales and flea markets set up along Highway 127 for 690 miles! We managed to see a little bit of the sale while visiting my father in law in Tennessee last summer. It was amazing!
Imagine this--as far as you can see down the road, on both sides--tables and tents and stands and even full sized flea markets peddling antiques, "man-tiques" books and junk, along with barbecue, kettle corn and Mennonite ladies selling fried pies and homemade bread. Picture a combination of church groups selling homemade preserves, dusty boxes from your dad's garage next to tables laden with your grandmother's fanciest stuff, and caravans of folks in RV's who make the trip every year from points across the country. It goes on for two weeks every summer. We just might have to go back this year, it was so much fun!
