Yard sale stretches across U.S. 12 in Michigan

We've all heard the phrase "one man's trash is another man's treasure."

This weekend hundreds of people will be looking for their treasure at the U.S. 12 yard sale.

The yard sale started Friday and runs until Sunday. is 212 miles, running from New Buffalo to downtown Detroit.

People have been finding out about it by word of mouth. Every year sellers say they are surprised by what sells.

“Probably with the economy it’s cheaper to buy at yard sales and garage sales for people,” says Janice Ross selling items on her front yard in Cass County.

Shoppers say you never know what you'll find at a yard sale!

“A lot of people are looking for bargains!” says seller Robert Herman.

The yard sale has been going on for about five years now.

It’s a copycat of others in Ohio and Kentucky.
