You think? Heck yea the US 127 Yard Sale is tourism at its best! Just last year I was visited several stops along the famed route of tube socks, boxes of nails and old Pepsi signs that could be worth 1000’s of dollars and I actually had to search out some people from Kentucky for a news story!

Just last year I was visited several stops along the famed route of tube socks, boxes of nails and old Pepsi signs that could be worth 1000’s of dollars and I actually had to search out some people from Kentucky for a news story! I really had to ask, I think it was 8 people until I found a Kentuckian. License plates from New Hampshire, Maine, Oklahoma, Michigan and other states dot the canvas here in Central Kentucky during the sale.  The sale is this week 5th-8th!

 

The State Fair is coming! August, 19th through the 29th. What a huge musical lineup for the fair! It’s like a mini Hullabaloo or Woodstock of it’s own!
