“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor”
Every year when the first weekend in August rolls around, people travel from all over to my neck of the woods with one thing in mind: a good bargain! If you love antiquing or vintage items, then you probably know about the World’s Longest Yard Sale that starts here in Gadsden, Alabama and goes all the way to Addison, Michigan. Imagine miles and miles (690 to be exact) of treasures…it’s a true junker’s paradise!
You can find everything from galvanized washtubs to vintage Pyrex dishes to old furniture just waiting on that coat of chalk paint! Of course it wouldn’t be a real yard sale if there weren’t knick-knacks from a McDonald’s Happy Meal, old shoes with the soles barely intact, and junk that absolutely no one on earth would want, but hey! I figured it would be a little more fun for you, my readers, to see it through the lens of a camera than to actually have to brave the heat and the traffic…so come on folks, let’s go yardsalin’!
…and to think, this was only two miles of the World’s Longest Yard Sale! Can you imagine what else is out there? I still can’t believe I found this china last year for $30! What about you? Have you ever been and what treasures did you find?
