If you're looking for a good bargain this weekend, there's some 200 miles of unbeatable sales across Michigan.

The annual U.S. 12 garage sale is this weekend from New Buffalo to Detroit.

Take a drive down U.S. 12 and you'll see plenty of signs that say sale with this weekend's longest garage sale in Michigan.

“People have come in spurts I'd say the most we had was 12 cars at one time, in the driveway and it was nice have the having the driveway to accommodate them,” said James Howard, who was holding a garage sale.

It runs from Lake Michigan all the way to Detroit and attracts bargain hunters from all over the state.

You'll find some of the typical items like old antiques, dishes and trinkets.

And lots of furniture.

“A lot of people looking for furniture and a lot of people looking for antiques,” said Howard.

Also, lots of people looking for deals with tough economic times, but like any yard sale there are some odd items like an old dentist's chair

What might be considered trash could soon be a treasure for someone else at a small price.

“I know anytime we can get a deal we stop at anyone I can get to,” said Joe Kaiser.

The garage sale runs through Sunday.
