Great weather for this year’s 127 Sale

Great weather for this year’s 127 SaleThis year’s 127 Sale ran Thursday, August 4th through Sunday, August 7th. Over the years, the sale has grown in popularity, attracting visitors from every state and a number of countries.
The 127 Corridor Sale started in 1987. Originally stretching for 350 miles, the sale route now covers 675 miles. The corridor winds its way up Lookout Mountain Parkway entering Tennessee and continuing along the Cumberland Plateau into the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. Northward, the sale route passes through the Midwest arriving at its final destination in Southeastern Michigan.
A few dislike the hectic traffic associated with the sale; but all must admit, the sale is good for the economy along the corridor route. Locals sell their crafts, accommodations are filled, restaurants are crowded, and those renting vendor spaces also add to the local economy.
Pictured here 127 Sale shoppers look at items including beautiful handmade quilts at Chanute Church.
