The goods

Miles o' stuff: And we do mean a lot of miles - 450 to be specific. It's the annual World's Longest Outdoor Sale, stretching from Covington's MainStrasse to Gadsden, Ala. Which is to say it goes through a zillion little towns along U.S. 127. You'll find stuff - antiques, collectibles, crafts - in front yards, at the curb, in driveways, church lots and school yards as well as stretches of nothing but trees and fields between sale sites. It runs 7 a.m.-6 p.m. daily through Aug. 10.
