Massive 234-mile yard sale set for weekend

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - The Trash and Treasures Along the Tenn-Tom, an annual, 234-mile yard sale that runs from Tennessee through Mississippi and into Alabama, takes place this weekend.

Bargain hunters will find hundreds of yard and garage sales Friday and Saturday in nearly 20 communities.

The event originated as a project of the Tishomingo County Tourism Council, and the 234-mile route begins north of Iuka at the Tennessee state line.

As it goes through Iuka, locations for yard sale setups veer off to U.S. Highway 72 and Burnsville. Continuing south from Fulton, the route goes through downtown Aberdeen before proceeding to Demopolis, Ala.

Kim Graham, with the Itawamba County Development Council, tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/qbhArA ) that the event has steadily increased in popularity during its short, 4-year lifespan.
