A Tennessee Waltz Through the World's Longest Yard Sale
It's just a little past lunchtime in Dunlap, Tenn., and Patsy and Larry Hagood are already in heaven. Only a few hours into the first day of a four-day yard-sale extravaganza stretching from Michigan to Georgia, the trailer the Hagoods brought with them from their home in Canton, N.C., is already half-full of great finds: a love seat twined from wild grapevines, an antique wrought-iron plant hanger and a huge artificial Christmas tree.
