Calling All Yard Sale Connoisseurs: World’s Longest Yard Sale Takes Place Aug. 1-4

leave a comment »

Decatur, Ala. – Each year, thousands of bargain hunters, yard sale connoisseurs and treasure seekers make their way through northeastern Alabama for the biggest yard sale shopping spree in the world. The World’s Longest Yard Sale, a once-a-year, 690-mile shopping trip, is set for August 1-4, 2019, and along with shopping, treasure hunting and bargaining, there is plenty of sightseeing to do along the way.

Many shoppers begin the 690-mile, six state journey in Gadsden, taking the scenic Lookout Mountain Parkway to Chattanooga and following Highway 127 all the way north to Addison, Mich. Everything from antiques, collectibles, furniture, and dishwares to fresh garden produce and homemade jams and jellies along with food vendors and live entertainment can be found. It is estimated to be more than 1,000 vendors in Alabama alone. Vendors are typically up and running by 8 a.m. and operate until late in the evening each day of the event.

Along with an incredible shopping adventure, the World’s Longest Yard Sale takes visitors through some of the most scenic rural America in the United States. The 93-mile Lookout Mountain Parkway has been touted “A Must See” by Reader’s Digest, the National Geographic and Southern Living magazines. Along with four days of shopping, visitors can experience true southern hospitality, a world of nature, including breathtaking vistas and majestic waterfalls, and a variety of locally-owned restaurants and accommodations.

Shoppers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes, insect repellent and sunscreen and to bring plenty of water. Many vendors operate on a cash only basis and do not accept credit cards or checks.
