Great News! garagesaleshere.com (GHS) is a proud sponsor of 2013 The World’s Longest Yard Sale of Fentress County, Tennessee. It is also called the 127 Corridor Sale. I was first made aware of this event 6 months ago and finally decided to do my research. It has even received coverage for ABC news.
The World’s Longest Yard Sale was originally started in 1987 by tourism officials in Jamestown, Tenn to boost sales during the economic turn down in the area.
“A few dislike the snarled traffic associated with the sale, but all must admit, the sale is good for the economy along the corridor route,” a press release for the event reads. “Locals sell their crafts, accommodations are filled, restaurants are crowded, and those renting vendor spaces also add to the local economy.”
I will be going and taking all this in first hand. Seriously considering renting a spot to just get the word out about GSH
