ALTO, TX (KTRE) - The El Camino Real will be flooded with vintage clothing and antiques for Sale on the Trail.

As the old saying goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure.

"I'm looking for antiques and any type of bargains we can get," Martha Willis, a traveler from Fred, TX said.

"There are a lot of interesting things," Kimberly Wells, a shopper from Alvin, TX said.

"There are a lot of neat things and things we'd be interested in," Kevon Wells, from Alvin, TX said.

"We have a lot of stuff we need to get rid of, and we love doing it," Diann Collier, a seller on highway 21 in Douglas, TX said.

The El Camino trail is getting revamped for the weekend and travelers have took notice.

"We were passing through from Nacogdoches, and saw it coming down on the way back," Kimberly said.  "We saw it and stopped."

If you haven't noticed, sale signs are along Highway 21, and sellers are excited to give away classic pieces for an affordable price.

"I'm selling a lot of glassware, a lot of antiques," Rusty Grindle, a seller on Highway 21 in Alto said. "I also have an antique car for sell. We'd like to put you in it and let you go home in it."

"We have antiques, furniture, collectables, and glassware," Diann said.

Even some young East Texans are cashing in on unwanted items.

"I have some fishing lines, and I have some ranches," Alexa Collier, a 7-year-old seller said. "I made seven dollars."

 Shoppers can find new and used items sold by East Texans and businesses. On Saturday downtown Nacogdoches will be flooded with sales, as part of Sale on the Trail, which organizers hope will bring more people into deep East Texas.

"It gives visitors an impression on things that are going on in town that is active, and a community full of fun, which we are," Nacogdoches Convention and Visitors Bureau Executive Director, Carl Watson said.

If you're a shopaholic, collector or just looking for something to do, the sale on the trail is something travelers and locals said is an experience you want to take full advantage of.

"We meet a lot of people from out of town, and I meet a lot of people that I know," Diann said.

"It's all reasonable, and really good prices," Willis said.

The trail continues on Saturday in Natchitoches, LA, Sabine Parish, LA, Sabine, TX, San Augustine, TX, Nacogdoches, TX,  and Alto, TX.
