The 127 "It Just Keeps Going" World's Longest Yard Sale

Yesterday morning we were back out bright and early to do some picking on a section of 127 in Kentucky.
Want to see what I got? Oh, if you insist...



The junk In all it's glory. Freshly picked and looking for a new home. The biggest spoon/knife I have ever seen. About 3 1/2 feet tall.


Why no kind seller, I am not going to make a doily with this. It will however make a fun graphic decoration for someone's sewing room.



Bottles, locks and pictures, oh my! A small metal horse for the Princess.



Chalkware fruit. Look at their funny little faces. So smile worthy.



The embroidery affliction/affection continues. The picture is of horse named Fighting King from the 50s. He will get a new frame and head up to the bedroom of resident horse mad Princess.
There you have it. It was a blur. It was amazing. I just might need a year to recuperate!!!!

Amazing things right in my own back yard (KY)! I love the chalkware fruit. I have the tomato and lettuce, but the rest are just as darling. I am putting 127 on my next year's list of goals!
