200 Mile Highway 80 Garage Sale

The longest garage sale in history.  That's what's going on this weekend along Highway 80. It spans from Arcadia, Louisiana, through East Texas all the way to Grand Prairie, Texas.

Wednesday, merchants were already setting out items on the roadside in anticipation of the next two weekends. One merchant was displaying everything from antiques to produce to the kitchen sink in an effort to cash in on heavy traffic. The historic U.S. Highway 80 sale starts Thursday and continues Friday and Saturday and then continues Thursday, Friday, and Saturday next week. The sales start at 8 a.m. daily.
