350-mile-long yard sale gets going

By  | 

SHERMAN, Tex. -- Calling all bargain hunters! Cities along Highways 82 and 287 are gearing up for one of the biggest garage sales the area has ever seen.

The Red River Valley Tourism Association is hosting a 350-mile-long yard sale that spans from as far east as Clarksville to as far west as Seymour.

Each city has been asked to come up with an idea to get shoppers out and about, looking for all sorts of knickknacks along the way.

Tourism officials in Sherman have set up booths on the courthouse lawn, and they are inviting everyone out to enjoy the unique shopping.

"You never know what someone wants. It’s just fun for a lot of people. That concept is fun, and everyone is looking for a bargain, and you dig through stuff and you don’t know what you'll find," Shawnda Raines at the Sherman Tourism Office says.

The yard sale kicked off Friday and will go through Saturday.
