Just about everyone along the 690 mile route of "The World's Longest Yard Sale" is hunting for a bargain, but one group hit the road for a very special cause, six DIY bloggers furnishing a Habitat For Humanity house.
"We've assigned the bloggers maybe you handle the 8 year old boys room, you handle the 12 year old girls room, you handle the kitchen and they've been using this yard sale for collecting all these wonderful bits and pieces," said James Bell, Head of Consumer Affairs for General Motors.
Teaming with General Motors, they are given a 250 dollar budget per room, and have proven they can make it go a long way.
"She's basically going to mount a basketball backboard with the numbers along side to look like a scoreboard ion the 8 year old boys room," said Bell.
"They take odd windows and paint scenery to put on the walls, they took junk lumber and made closet organizers this morning, they were taking some fabric to make a bed skirt, just all kinds of different things that they do," added Debbie Morrison, Founder of Serenity Point Charities.
As they head back to the Atlanta home, they know where to stop again next year.
"This is where the real heat of this event is. Sure there are a lot of people doing this in Ohio but this is where the action is. You get the feel that there are professionals down here," said Bell.
Next year, local residents hope the GMC Treasure Hunters will get a crack at a Chattanooga Habitat House.
"They love the idea. Last year they drove to Birmingham and this year they drove to Atlanta and they loved the idea. They said that this is really the hub, Tennessee is the one who does the 127 sale right."
