On the backroads of Appalachia for 502 miles

from Meridian, Mississippi to Bristol, Virgina.

The sale is always the weekend after Mother's Day in May.

The 2010 sale is May 13th - 16th

This event goes right through our town and this will be me and my husband's third year of partaking of the fun! I personally like it better than the longest yard sale in August, mainly because it isn't in August! It is also less hyped , so the crowds are more manageable traffic wise. Last year we found all of our treasures over an hour away, just north of Fort Payne, where the drive became more scenic and bargains were a plenty. We scored several ladder back chairs, all less than 10.00 each, among other misc. fun things! If you live near highway 11m you should definitely make a day of it!


  1. Oh my gosh!! I wish I didn't have a friggin job to go to!! Hmmm wonder if I could swing another day off so quickly after my last one? Nah...I need to get all of this stuff listed before I even think about it! SOOOO tempting!

  2. ooh I just realized it starts on a Thursday- my day off! No. I can't.

  3. Now, I am arguing with myself on your blog- sorry.

  4. I wish I lived closer. Sounds like a wonderful event!

  5. Angela, how far are you from Meridian? It might be worth the drive! if your day off is still Thursday, that is usually the quietest day of it, since most people are working.
    Oklahoma Granny, you would probably love it too!

  6. I am about 4 or 5 hours away I think. I have been there once and remember it being a very long drive. I am in the northern part of the state right across the river from Arkansas- so I would have to drive all the way across the state and South...

    I really want to go though!

  7. I love your blog, and the name of it!
    I wish we had more of these types of antique markets here in Vancouver. Looks like I'm missing out on a great one this weekend!
    have a lovely weekend!
