    Yard sale enthusiasts are expected to travel U.S. 25 from Crittenden to Corinth today through Saturday for the fourth annual U.S. 25 yard sale.

    The historic highway plays host to the nearly 250-mile yard sale that spans from the Ohio/Kentucky border through Tennessee to Georgia.

    The U.S. 25 yard sale aims to mimic the popular U.S. 127 corridor sale, said Judy Wigginton, of Williamstown. Wigginton had the dream of the sale and has worked the last few years expanding its reach into other communities and states.
