Highway 80 Sale kicks off

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Get your money handy! That is because the spring Highway 80 Sale is going on this weekend, it kicked off Friday.

The sale is huge, spanning all the way down Highway 80 from Texas through Louisiana to Jackson, Mississippi.

It was organized to draw tourism through historic Highway 80 and you can literally find anything and everything there, even a lot of antiques. We found folks hitting the highway early Friday morning, hunting for bargains.

"[I found] copper cups that are really neat, I think, and some jewelry and some really cool earrings," said Donna Harris, a shopper.

"[You can find] everything," said Barb Looney, a seller. "Anything you've ever wanted, thought about, didn't think about, didn't know existed is probably on this road somewhere between here and there."
