Bargain Hunters Head South for World’s Longest Yard Sale

JAMESTOWN, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Bumper-to-bumper bargain hunting has sale lovers heading south for the World’s Largest Yardsale in Jamestown, Tennessee, from August 2nd-5th.

Hagglers looking to score a good deal on everything from antiques to antlers will be cruisin’ a 630-mile stretch across Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia for the 20th Annual Highway 127 Corridor Sale.

According to tourism director Walter Paige, the old catchphrase, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” is very true during the yardsale, but getting to the treasures is not an easy ride.

Paige explains, “It’s like bumper cars out here, but there’s never any road rage. Unless, of course, the last item is about to sell!”

But devoted bargain fiends shouldn’t be discouraged.

To get through the traffic and the heat, Paige recommends plenty of water, walking shoes, and a wad of cash for shopping – but don’t expect to cover the entire stretch of the barter bonanza.

Says Paige: “It’d be tough to cover 630-miles of yardsale with all the gawkers stopping their cars to check out the vendors. It could be done, but you wouldn’t get much shopping in.”
