If you are looking for a good time, and like to do the following:
A) People Watch
B) Find good bargains
C) Look at other peoples junk
D) Hang out with friends
Then going to a 654 mile yard sale is the thing to do!
I don't know how I am going to explain everything we saw at all the places we were at, but here it goes. :)
They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I think I will let some of the pictures do the talking.
We headed out bright and early toward Signal Mountain, TN. As we come up the mountain you get the feeling that we are not alone.
Nestled amongst the trees is a space ship! Actually it's a house that looks like a space ship. :)
At our first stop, they had lots and lots of stuff. Lots of stuff I liked, but it was early in the day.
I really liked this piece, but they had it priced a little high. I was looking for bargains, and something I might be able to bring back to live with a little love. :)
I did not like something they had displayed on this piece.
At least he was dead. :(
Hey Apron Queen I thought of you while I was up there! :)
As we were leaving one of the stops we saw the neatest motorcycle! It was bright yellow and had the cutest trailer attached to it. Of course I did not have my camera ready, but luckily we caught up with it a little further down the road.
We stopped at a community center that had a thrift store in it. This is where I found two of my favorite buys of the day!
Donna and I both got one of the wicker loveseats, and I got that steamer trunk!
We paid $2.00 a piece for the loveseats, and I go the trunk for a whooping $3.00!!!
Before I get into a resounding theme going on at these yard sales let me make a shout out to all my Texas blog buddies!!
Ok now on to weirdness. What is up with ugly dolls at these things. I don't just mean ugly, I mean downright creepy and scary! I know a lot of them are antique and all, but they are creepy! So bear with me as we look at the abundance of weird dolls and creatures.........
I think Santa has had bit to much to drink.
I hope you can read what this thing says :)........
This one truly was evil looking! The picture does not pick out any features on this doll's face, but it was made out of like an old peach pit, so it was all wrinkled and it had some sort of yellow eyes. Very, Very creepy. :(
If you want more creepy dolls go here.......
Out of all the things we saw Saturday, I believe the next thing had to have been the weirdest. I looked over and saw this........
Yep that is a coffin. A baby coffin, oh but it gets weirder........
It has a removable plaque, that when actually removed, reveals a glass look through window.
Now I believe the creepiest part about this whole thing is the fact that there were two of them earlier in the day. Someone actually bought the other one. Now you may say why would anyone want to buy one of these. Apparently whoever bought it was going to make a coffee table out of the thing. WHAT? If you are the person who purchased the other coffin, will you please e.mail me and explain to me why you would want to do such a thing.
Sometimes, I just don't understand people....
I guess I just need to put my big girl panties on and get over it. :)
More to come stay tuned.............
