This weekend was the Route 11 yard crawl. Forty-three miles of yard sales and flea markets along a two lane highway through small towns and farmland. Hundreds and hundreds of yard sales and thousands of shoppers. It doesn’t get much better than that. My husband likes to refer to this event as “my Superbowl.”
|Imagine this times about 1000.|
I found so much amazing stuff – we completely packed our SUV and our pickup truck. The yard crawl is an eclectic mix of locals getting rid of their household junk, pickers with whatever cool stuff they’ve found throughout the year, and antique dealers selling their wares. There were a wide range of prices from furniture for one dollar to full-blown antique store prices.
|Many people laughed at us trying to squeeze in just one more thing.|
I can’t wait to show you some of my best finds but currently they are in a huge pile in my living room waiting to be sorted and cleaned and all that good stuff. So for today, I thought I would showcase some of the crazier (and creepier) things I saw at the yard crawl.
|Time for a workout!|
|There were also goats and puppies for sale.|
|This section looked more like the scene of an accident than a yard sale.|
|Gross. This was priced at $125. When I passed by here later on, it appeared to have been bought.|
|And the award for creepiest sighting goes to the antique examining table with the stirrups and the babydolls.|
I am still exhausted from all the shopping and driving and craziness. But I am also already counting the days to next year’s event. Can’t wait. Anyone have any tips on other huge, awesome yard sale events?
