COVINGTON -- Thrifter? Sit down. You'll need a good pair of shoes and you might want to clear out everything in your trunk.
The World's Longest Yard Sale is stretching into the Tri-State through Aug. 10.
Nearly 100 vendors signed up to sell everything from rocks and golf balls to antiques and furniture in MainStrauss Village in Covington. The vendors began selling Thursday morning on the Sixth Street Promenade and in Goebel Park, and the sale will continue through Sunday at 4 p.m.
"There's a lot of kids and people who collect rocks. If you've got something that's different that nobody else has, more people will buy them," said Mike Young, who's selling odds and ends for the second year in row at the sale.
The World's Longest Yard Sale, also called the 127 Corridor sale, traditionally begins the first Thursday of August and continues for four days. The 690-mile sale spans across six states, beginning in Gadsen, Ala. along U.S. Corridor 127 and ending in Addison, Mich.
