One of the many stops along the 127 Yard Sale is in Celina, Ohio, where the streets are filled with people from all over the country. 

The 690-mile event runs all the way from Addison, Michigan to Gadsen, Alabama, making it the worlds longest yard sale. 

Jana Sigler who helped host a sale out of her cousins home says she has met people from all over the country. 

"We've seen people from all over the place. We've seen people from Michigan, we've seen people from down south, it's kind of hard to keep track of everybody but they just move right through," says Sigler. 

Typical yard sale items such as antiques, clothes, furniture are sold. However, some are even selling historical cars. 

Sales made along Route 127 are not solely for personal profit. Joanne Spratt and her friends are looking to better the lives of others with their earned money.

"Our sole purpose is to raise money for education for women. We own a college in Nevada Missouri so everything we make from this garage sale is going towards our scholarship fund," says Spratt.

Spratt says that the group puts in so much hard work simply because of their support for women's education. 

Shoppers have until Sunday to check out the sale, creating a fun challenge to find the best deals while making their way up or down the country.
