World's Longest Yard Sale Love

It's been a few days since I got back from the 127 sale.  What can I say?
I have decided that the WLYS is like Christmas for pickers.
Oh, the anticipation when you round the bend and you see a field of tents with as yet undiscovered treasures.
Oh, the stress of deciding which ones to stop at and which ones to pass on by.

My trunk of junque.  I didn't fill it to the brim so do feel as though I failed a bit in my quest.
How clever is this bench?  So clever he had a pair of them!  Love it but left them behind with their $200 plus price tags.

These Old Crow bottles shaped like enormous chess pieces amused me no end.  Possibly I should have purchased them?
This horse head was ENORMOUS.  My daughter is wondering why I did not get it for her!  Because it is bigger than she is and would take up half her room.

Fabulous display of blueberry boxes.  Loved them.  Didn't love the price and reminded myself that I have similar cherry boxes in my posession.

More yard sale love to follow!

It would be very hard to decide which ones to stp at and which ones to go past!
Cool blueberry boxes!
So, what did you get?

We did that sale one year. It was fun, and we were exhausted at the end but bought little. Real yard sales were few and far between. Mostly antique dealers. That was fun too, to see all of the things they had. Just more expensive than we anticipated.

Hope to see pictures of your new acquisitions! How many miles did you cover? Please tell us of your adventures.

I'd have such a hard time deciding on where to stop. I think it should last longer...maybe for the entire month! No, you didn't fail, you were just being selective. Looking forward to seeing your treasures.

Did the WLYS here in Ky and it was a blast. Love seeing what you found there, too.

I had a hard time deciding too. Ended up going from Covington Ky. to Hamilton Ohio on Thursday and then hit south of Covington Sunday thinking prices would be lower. I was wrong, haha. Love those liquor bottles. My son is a chess fanatic. I will have to hunt for some. Can't wait to see what you did come home with!

I think my thrifting buddy and I will have to explore the local yard crawl next year. Sounds like you had fun and your 'trunk of junk' looks like it has some great finds stashed in there!

These kinds of sales are a blast. I can hit them all & do it quickly. Great treasures you saw ...
