A few days before the weekend hits in Tyler and Longview, Texas you'll see garage signs appearing around your neighborhood or on utility poles on street corners as homeowners attempt to sell the items they no longer need this time of the year.

Along US Highway 80, which runs right through the heart of East Texas, there will soon be thousands of garage sales along this historic US highway. There will be bargains for everyone and all kinds of things for sale.

It is considered the world's longest garage sale and happens twice yearly. The spring Historic Hi*Way 80 sale this year is happening Friday through Sunday, April 19-21.

The Historic Hi*Way 80 Sale once stretched more than 2,400 miles across the southern part of the U.S., Highway 80 went from Savannah, GA through to San Diego, CA, but nowadays the highway has been cut and is no longer continuous. From Tybee Island, GA to the east side of Dallas, this is the only stretch of the original Highway 80 that remains.
