There's plenty to see at the 61-mile yard sale along Highway 61.

From Elvis fanatics to Cardinal Nation fans, there is something for everyone.

If you're willing to pay for it.

"This one is probably worth $1,000 ...It would have to be a pretty hard-core Cardinals fan,” said a yard sale vendor.

Luckily, some of these vendors know how to work with the customer, but nothing stood out to me more than a toilet seat cover, covered in pennies.

"Because we do a show in Texas and our booth has more unusual stuff in it that anybody,” said a yard sale customer.

Don't worry, there's plenty else to choose from.

The annual event spans from Bloomsdale to Jackson and runs through Sunday.

Vendors recommend heading out Saturday.

Typically there are more things to choose from because sellers are off work.
