400 Mile Yard Sale

Spent Friday at the 400 mile yard sales.
We started in Mason County and hit US 68 through
Nicholas, Robertson, Bourbon and Fayette Counties. Stopped at a ton of sales.
Good grief, I am out of practice, just a few short years ago I would have come home with a car load of stuff.
Here is my haul for the day.
The Osterizer Blender was priced at five dollars, I got it for $3,
and the percolator was just 50 cents!
Vintage patterns-.50 each
Elmo Camera-.50
Vintage Apron-.50
Tea pot with strainer inside-2.00

In Old Washington in Mason County I spotted this fantastic Volkswagon. I want it!

This is my friend Danetta, she is checking out the good junk at a sale down on US 68

The Junk Mans place, lots of junk for sure,
but I was disappointed in the junk man,
he didnt seem to love his junk,
there was some really good vintage stuff
but it has been left out in the weather for years
there was some really rusty, crusty stuff inside the outbuildings. No score here

Be Still My Heart

Danetta and I decided to take a road trip to check out some antique shops and flea markets.
We stopped by Humphries Antiques in Poplar Plains first then headed to Farmers to have a look see at the School House Antiques.
I love vintage stuff, and the antiques at Humphries are lovely,
but I didn't find anything on this trip to fall head over heels for, except for a little bug in the photo below and the wonderful country cottage style house!

those dreams I said I had to remember, well this is one of them
be still my heart.........
i spied this baby parked at the side of todd johnsons garage, and just about caused a wreck when i hollered oh my gosh and danetta said you wanna get a picture, and i said naw, ......then quickly yelled oh hell yes!
now i feel bad cause in all my giddy excitement, i forgot to pet the doggie that wandered in as i snapped the photo.
