America's Buy-way: At 25 years, U.S. 127 yard sale still packing them in
This marks the 25th year The World’s Longest Yardsale has presented capitalism in its rawest, purest form. No middlemen. No advertising campaigns. No impulse buys set up in the checkout lanes. No catalogues or Internet commons. Just thousands of buyers and sellers wheeling and dealing face to face in the dust and the heat and exhaust fumes for four days along U.S. 127, from Addison, Mich., through Mercer, Boyle, Lincoln and Casey counties, to Gadsden, Ala., a marketplace that stretches 690 miles.
