This years World's Longest Yard Sale was better than ever!
For me, at least!
While I was at work the day before, my Dad dropped off $100 with a note that said
"Have a good time at the yard sale, Dad".
How sweet is that?
And, yep, I'm still Daddy's Little Girl!
This windfall was a total game changer for me!
Instead of only looking for items for my Etsy Shop
I could now look for a few things for me too.
My road trip starts as I turn off I-275 onto Rt 127 in Fairfield, Ohio.
I bypass Rt 127 in Cincinnati in favor of small towns and farm country north of there.
My first stop is always at a small old strip mall in Fairfield with a few vendors in the parking lot.
I'm looking for a chair for my living room as my naughty kitties have destroyed the one I have (sigh...).
This stop looks promising but, alas, is not.
The next stop is another old small strip mall where I find a few smalls:
a metal basket, a scoop and a flower frog.
Yep, those are deer legs and feet.
I did not buy them!
This stop is full of antiques dealers is on the side of the road every year.
I love the stuff but I'm looking for better prices.
So I move on...
This old guy set up under a shade tree with a cooler of cold drinks and a small pile of junk.
It was a hot and humid day as it always is in August in the midwest.
These people were very organized with tents for shade which encourages lingering.
I lingered and found a few smalls here but no chair.
My heart rate speeds up at the sight of so many venders in one place!
And my truck starts to fill up!
But no chair yet...
Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow!
