The World’s Longest Yard Sale

11-27557 Hwy 127 Brochure 2011.indd

“I’m Wanted…..Dead or Alive” That’s right, I’m teaming up with another Tough Mother and we are about to get Funky & Handy on the World’s Longest Yard Sale.

We’re headin’ South in a ‘smokin’ ride,
on a quest for a giant suprise.

GMC Hidden Treasure Adventures is the name.
You betta’ believe we’re in this game!

Antiques, treasures and thrifty junk.
I spotted it first so step off Punk!


It’s 690 miles of grueling thrifting and bargaining for the best deals. There are some dangerous factors to contend with, least of which are the other ruthless bargain hunters:

 Brooke from All Things Thrifty

Lindsey from Better After

Cy & Traci from Beneath My Heart

The yard sales start in Addison, Michigan and go all the way to Gadsden, Alabama. I’ve heard some terrifying things about this journey:

  • Heat
  • Humidity
  • Haggling
  • Traffic
  • Rubber Neckers
  • Port-o-Potties
  • Greasy Food
  • Early Birds
  • and Junk Warriors

Oh wait, that last one is us!

Donna from Funky Junk Interiors
and I are the Tough Mothers to watch out for.

We’ll be slinking around and pouncing on the best treasures and finds for 4 days: August 2nd – 5th. And GMC has hooked us up with one Bad {BLEEP} Ride. We’ll be haulin’ junk in a GMC Yukon XL.

It should be plenty of room to fit enough treasures for a great cause — oh come on, you didn’t think I’d truly fallen to the dark side did you? Nope, I’ll still be helping out my favorite charity:

The details are a surprise, so you’ll have to stay tuned!

Wish me good luck and safe travels as Funky & I road trip it in our GMC Yukon XL from North to South along the ole 127 Sale!

I’ll be posting pictures and updates, so be sure to follow me on Twitter and Facebook.

 Be sure to head over to Funky’s and check out her video! Hysterical!
