JACKSON, Tenn. — Bargain hunters from across the state hit the road Thursday searching for a steal. The 12th annual Highway 70 Yard Sale kicked off on Thursday. It stretches from Memphis to Nashville. “Everything that’s on this property right now, I want it gone,” Steve Lowe, a vendor, said. “I’m not in love with none of it.” Lowe set up shop in Madison County and said he is trying to downsize. “Have a little bit less to worry about,” he said. “If I don’t use it, I don’t need it.” One man‘s trash is another man‘s treasure. Shoppers come looking for a deal. “We love the thrill of finding something that is really great that we get for a lot cheaper,” shopper Morgan Esdale said. Esdale and her mom traveled from Trenton to shop. “It’s just fun cause there’s so many yard sales,” she said. “On Saturday, you might see one or two, but out there it’s just yard sales for miles.” The sale runs through Saturday, and vendors said the deals get better as the days go on. Some of the items up for grabs include tikis, hand carved artwork, skis, figurines, books and clothes. There is a little bit of everything. “I’ll dive in a dumpster in a heartbeat,” Gary Herburger, a vendor, said. The annual event draws shoppers from across the area. Lowe said he expects to see thousands of people. “If you’re asking $2, they’ll try to buy it for a quarter,” he said.
