Looking for Bargains at the World's Longest Yard Sale, Dunlap, TN

Living in Tennessee for 10 years has taught us a great deal about the south. No matter how much America has changed over the years, the south still retains its signature Southern hospitality. Their passions for college football,  music, gardening, barbecue and yard sales run deep and are infectious. 

Fleamarkets and yard sales are big in Florida too, but it's nothing when compared to the South. Case in point: if you lost your bags on a flight, chances are you might find your belongings at the Unclaimed Baggage in nearby Scottsboro, Alabama. A unique shopping experience for sure.

I was very excited to return to Tennessee, just in time for the world's longest yard sale, a fun event that takes place the first weekend in August. For 4 days (Thurs - Sunday), vendors set up all along Hwy 127 from Hudson, Michigan to Gadsden, Alabama, some 690 miles of yard sale shopping heaven. Some people drive quite far to hunt for bargains (treasures or junk, you decide). I was at Dunlap Friday, and met a mother and daughter who drove all the way from Austin, TX!

If you were hunting for bargains at the world's longest yard sale this past weekend, I hope you found what you were looking for. Enjoy your new found treasures!
