ASHTON, IL (WIFR) -- The historic Lincoln Highway was America's first coast-to-coast paved road and now it's the place to find the world's longest yard sale.
The 9th Annual Lincoln Highway Buy-Way Sale got under way Thursday the deals stretch across four state's; West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. We stopped by Ashton, Illinois where Kristen Kida was getting things ready for customers. This is the seventh year participating in the event and she says it means big business.
"But really when people are serious about garage sailing they take there money and you do better with the competition, with the volume of the people going through. It's always been a real good time," Kida said.
The yard sales will be open Aug. 9 and 10. For more info on the event just check out http://illinoislincolnhighwayassociation.org
