This yard sale stretches nearly 700 miles

Calling all antique enthusiasts, estate sale scavengers and flea market aficionados: this one’s for you. It’s time for the best, biggest, greatest and most awesome yard sale ever. The World’s Longest Yard Sale (more formally known as the 127 Yard Sale) starts in Addison, Mich. and follows scenic State Route 127 nearly 700 miles down to Gadsden, Ala.

Lucky for us, it runs right through a quaint little part of Northern Kentucky we call MainStrasse. For four magical days, MainStrasse will transform into a yard sale wonderland. As with all yard sales, pretty much anything goes, so prepare to sift your way through other people’s basement clutter and vintage collections and score a treasure or two to take home.

8 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday- Sunday. Free admission. MainStrasse Village, Main St., Covington, 127yardsale.com.
