Leave it up to the United States to produce the World’s Longest Yard Sale. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, this record-setting event is bigger than ever, spanning 690 miles starting five miles north of Addison, Mich. and ending in Gadsden, Ala. Lucky for bargain hunters in the Buckeye State, that puts Ohio right on its trail, with 240 miles of consumers’ heaven (the good kind of consumer that supports its local community instead of your typical mode of outsourcing).

Art vendors and house owners alike will come out to display their used and new goods on sale for prices far more affordable than any Nordstrom or Urban Outfitters. (Think of the hipster irony in shopping at the World’s Longest Yard Sale!) In order to recognize the U.S.’s true beauty, the World’s Longest Yard Sale will take to the back streets — the routes far less traveled but so much more recognizable. Some attendees may want to make a vacation out of this event, and some may wish to gander for just an hour; no matter—the yard sale is fit for any kind of shopper. The sale runs through Sunday Aug. 5 and spans US 127. For more information, call 800-327-3945 or for the details on Ohio’s yard sale in particular, visit 127saleohio.com.
