Yard Sale Adventures

I am a natural born bargain hunter. I wore a 5 dollar thrifted vintage dress to my grandmothers funeral. I have amazing art on my walls found at junk stores and trift shops. My mom, sister, and Momma Wanderer are all avid bargin hunters. Mr. Wanderer not so much. But he does enjoy, for the most part, the spoils of my hunts. The famous multi state highway 127 yard sale has spawned copycat yard sales across the nation. Here are other highway yard sales that may interest you.

Dixie Highway, June 5-7, 2015

This 90 mile yard sale winds through northern Georgia, passing through the towns of Tunnel Hill, Rocky Face, Dalton, Resaca, Cartersville, Cassville, Adairsville and Kennesaw.

Great U.S. 50 Yard Sale, MAY 15-17, 2015

Like many miles long yards sales this was started as a way to drive up tourism. It stretches the length of U.S. 50 from Maryland to California. Individual towns and communities along the route have control of their portion of the yard sale, so in many areas you will find the yard sale stretching community wide as opposed to just the portion bordering U.S. 50.

Route 60 Yard Sale (no date yet)

This yard sale stretches along Rt 60 From Rowan Co to Carter county. Its small, only 40 miles, but its the place to go for good farm antiques. Swing into Smokey Valley Truck Stop for lunch.

The 400 Mile Yard Sale, JUNE 4 - 7

This Yard sale stretches across middle Tennessee. Last year they boasted over 800 vendors along the 95 mile stretch. The route runs through the counties of Robertson, Sumner, Macon and Clay. A lot of good antiques and handmade quilts can be found!
