Longest Yard Sale

By  | 

If you love shopping, this is for you. If you're an impatient husband, it's not.

The annual World's Longest Yard Sale is continuing through Sunday.

It spans 450 miles from Gadsden, Alabama through Tennessee, Georgia and Kentucky.

The event started in 1987 as a way to lure travelers away from the interstates to rural communities.

For anybody wondering what motivates bargain hunters at the sale, one shopper had a ready answer.

In her words, "It's the thrill of the search. You might find something you really want."
