It goes through the town where I live. It is supposed to start tomorrow, 8/2, but it has been going on here since last weekend. I can't wait until Friday. We are going to spend all day shopping the yard sales. It goes from Indiana to Florida. But, we are only going a few miles. I've already found a few bargains. I'm excited!!

I'd be excited too. I love yard sales. You can buy so much different stuff, cheap. The problem is, I tend to buy so much stuff, just because it's cheap, that I am over cluttered at home. lol But, still, I have a hard time resisting them.

I do the same thing. I already have 8 books shelves full of books, and there are stacks of them everywhere. And, what did I buy today? 4 more books. :D

lol My husband always says that I'll take anything that somebody gives me, and buy anything that's cheap.

Good luck on your yard sale shopping. i love to go to them also. They have one like this in arkansas also. we wen to it last year, but it was so hot that i could not really enjoy myself, it was over 100 degrees out side.I really just wanted to get back home in the air conditioning.

It was about that hot here today. I hope it cools down by Friday so we can enjoy it. But, we've already planned to take a cooler full of water and ice.

There's a highway 127 that goes into southern Illinois as well. I wonder if it's all part of the same highway? At any rate, that sounds like a fun way to spend a day! I love yard sales, even if they aren't strung out along an entire highway! :)

I have no idea where it is in GA. I only know it goes pretty much through the middle of Tn and KY.

My sister lives in Indianna and gets excited every year when this happens. She always finds great stuff. She and her daughters us it as a mother daughter day and always have some really funny stories. My sister is just a nut..... any where she goes she ends up with some crazy story. Never a dull moment when she is around. Have fun.

I've gone to it locally, but never "traveled". I can't wait. It is going to be so much fun. I've already found some stuff. I've gotten several books. And, I found a 12 qt. pressure canner for $15.00. I can't wait to see what I find when we go all day!

I didn't used to like garage sales. I've just lately developed a liking for them. I never wanted to dig around in someone's stuff. But, now I do. LOL
