I WENT TO THE 127 WORLDS LONGEST YARDSALE!!

Bought these pretty vintage roses pieces for 2.00 each!!!!





Bought this vintage casket jewelry box for 5.00 !!!!






This is a princess headboard i bought and painted for my grandaugters room. I am going to slightly distress it and try to get it up in her room soon.... We were going down the road and i caught it out of the corner of my eye and told my hubby STOP!!! GO BACK I SAW MY BED!!
I have been looking for 6 months for the right bed and finally found it!!!








































What a great time we had at the worlds longest yard sale. You had to see it to believe it! There was so much stuff it boggled the mind. If you are a yard sale lover then you would be in heaven! Have you ever seen a horse make ice cream? We went to an amish community and they had a horse on the cntraption like a treadmill and as the horse walked it churned the ice cream. My grandaughter and hubby enjoyed it. if you have never been you should try to go some time. It was extremely exhausting but so much fun. Here are a few pictures of the sale and some of the things i bought;

Oh my gosh!! I have always wanted to do that. But I know I would come home with way too much stuff. What all did you buy? I am so glad that you commented on my blog today because when I deleted my old blog I didn't have my list of favorites anymore so I am having a hard time remembering everyone so I now have you added to my sidebar again.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

How fun! My next door neighbors in Florida did that a couple of years ago. They loved it! This year they did Maine. Makes me want to do vintage again. Nan

Suzanne, that sounds like so much fun. It really is true that one man's trash is another man's treasure. I'm amazed at some of the great pieces that people will sell ....amazed and thankful!

What great fun and what great finds. We're going to something like that here in Texas in a couple of weeks, just not that many miles of stuff. Wish me luck that I do as well as you. Debbie

Wasn't that the most fun! We had a shop and off we went on a buying trip. I got great things and it just has left me wanting to go again. We really enjoyed Gadsten AL and even the antiques stores held wonderful buys.
Reading aboutit today makes me miss my shop even more.
