Historic Highway 80 Sale Underway

     Every October, highway 80 turns into a bargain hunters dream, with the annual highway 80 garage sale. The 6th annual highway 80 garage sale is going on over the next two weekends stretching from Vicksburg Mississippi all the way to Grand Prairie. Roadside stand's along the route sport anything and everything antique. Many items you'd never see in a department store, anything can be found in the highway 80 garage sale.

    "It's all on one row you just go from point a to point b and hit all you can as quick as you can and get good deals" says Gladewater shopper Laurie Turman.

     To prove it, the home office came up with a list of things they'd like to see. Baby blue stroller. Ugly lamp. Snoopy snow cone machine. The game of life, and a Bob Seger 8 track.    Surprisingly, in Longview alone,  we were able to find 3 out of 5. No Bob Seger or game of life.

 "Well there's just so much stuff to look at and it's just fascinating just looking at it from a distance its like hurry , stop to get out see what's there and things you don't ever see anymore" says White Oak shopper Vicky Van Zandt.  

    The highway 80 garage sale continues all along the roadway  Sunday and next Friday, Saturday and Sunday.   Bob Hallmark/bhallmark@kltv.com
