    Anyone doing the 127 sale? I'm going to. My sister and I are going to start in Jamestown TN and try to make it to Crossville and still have money left when we get there. :lol:

    I'm hoping to find some quilting stuff and I'm also looking for some things for the house. Wish me luck! :)

    OMG...I want to do that sometime.

    Is it always the same dates??? I may have to plan a trip/vacation around it in the future.

    Good Luck!

    Have fun!

    Although not nearly as large, but a fun yard sale is the one they have over Labor Day weekend in Hillsville, VA is fun. Entire town is one huge yard sale! I haven't been to it in several years and won't be able to go this year either, but someday we will go back.

    Is this the Endless Yard Sale that goes through several states? My DD and I are hoping to do this some year...after I retire most likely!

    We came through this area TN/KY this week and saw some signs of preparing for this sale. I was too early, wish I could go back but can't. We went about four years ago and it was a lot of fun. Take lots of water and snacks!!!!

    I did it about 8 years ago, at the time, it went from KY to GA. Wasn't quilting at that time, there was everything you could think of and then some. Alot of glass wear.

    It's not always the same date, but pretty close. It's always Thursday thru Saturday but a lot of people set up early. This year it's the 4th-7th of Aug. The website is www.127sale.com.
    Since I had been in Ohio for several years I didn't get to go but now I have no reason and I'm looking forward to it. I'm going to my sister's and spending the night Wed night so we can get an early start Thurs. morning. She lives in Jamestown. It is going to be a "sister time". We haven't had many in recent years.

    The yard sale is always the FIRST FULL Weekend in Aug. so if Aug 1 was on a Sunday it woud be the following weekend.
    It is a lot of fun.
    I discovered if you stop at the vendors at main intersections, it is mostly commercial vendors. and not those doing it
    for a once a yr yard sale.

    The ones along the off beaten tracks are good. But sometimes
    those think their things are made of gold,LOL.
    I found some gingher scissors for $5 each 2 yrs ago. He had a lot of them but would not disclose his source.

    We plan to go. This will be our 3rd year. 1st year we went from Gadsden, Al to Chattanooga. Last year we drove up to the KY border and came south to Chattanooga. This year we are going to stay with a relative of my SIL in Chattanooga and just go where ever we find ourselves in and around Chattanooga. Probably head home on Sat and shop Chattanooga south into Alabama.

    We have had fun -- tho the traffic is horrendous in places. Hard to find parking some places. And no need to mention how HOT it is. This has kinda become an annual even for my friend, my brother and his wife (and me of course). I don't get to spend enough time with brother and SIL so this makes it a good time even if we don't find lots of good stuff.

    I just went to my sisters for a b-day party and people are already set up along 127. A lot more then I would have figured this early but my sister said people are set up for the whole week. I know the place my sister has on 127, she rents it for the week.
