Shopping Trip

Well I must say it was fun and I bought a few good things, but one thing in my book that doesn't go together is extreme heat and outdoor shopping.
It was Hot, Hot, Hot and I live in Florida so I'm used to hot weather but nothing like the heat wave they were having.

We started here at Noccalula Falls Park in Gadsden Alabama.


P1030939My favorite sales were at peoples houses.

Check out the view from their backyard.

P1030941I'm a little afraid of heights so I didn't get too close to the edge on this one.

This house was next door to a sale we went to, it was gorgeous.
P1030943  The scenery was wonderful.

P1030945We passed this and I just had to take a picture.
I'm still stumped on the message they were trying to make on this church sign.

We traveled a total of 1300 miles and saw many beautiful things, our last stop was in Jamestown Tennessee, the town where the 127 sale all started.
Here are a few of the things I found. It was a lot of fun and we met some really nice people along the way.


  1. I went on the World's Longest Yard Sale and had a blast. Bought lots of fun goodies. I see you did also. We started in Kentucky and ended in Gadsden, Al.

  2. Fun! I had never heard of this before. It would be great to go. So thoughts on that sign... its probably referring to the crucifixion (nails through the hands and feet). Just a guess :)

  3. One day I hope to do the WLYS...maybe next summer! I love all your finds and can't wait to see what you do with it all!

  4. Ooh, lots of treasures. I just love taking someone elses cast offs and making them work in my home.

  5. Looks like a wonderful time!
    That church sign catches the eye and is true. Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities...with His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53

  6. Oh, now I get the saying on the church sign, thanks ladies.

  7. I wanted to go so bad this year still didn't make it! I will go next year!!!

    Did you stay in hotels?

  8. What a fun trip! It looks like you found some GREAT treasures! And I'd love to know what that church sign meant ;)

  9. Looks like you found a lot of wonderful things! Is that a nesting demilune table or a cabinet? I couldn't tell but can't wait to see more of it!

  10. sounds fun! They need to hold it in the Fall!Looks like you got some great finds!Lezlee

  11. I am so envious of those of you who went to the WLYS. You brought back some wonderful things.
    I'm hoping you will show us how you use them in later posts.


  12. Oh what fun it looks like you had! The scenery is beautiful. And...for in Florida the views must have been amazing! I have never gone to one of those sales but one of my hubby's co-workers went with her sisters and they had a ball. They came back with every spare space in their truck packed! I love the road sign...not the church one-the one you Glad you had fun! Trose

  13. Well I went to Scott's Antique Market today but that wasn't near as much fun as the places that you went! I love road trips...especially when they include junking!!

  14. Great finds!
    I've never been but me & a few girlfriends are already planning a trip for next year!!!

  15. That would be so much fun, the only thing that would make it better if they would have it in a cooler month! I love the scenery it's just breathtaking!!! Looks like you brought back some wonderful treasures! Blessings~~~ Daphne

  16. Church sign, Jesus' hands and feet were pierced with nails, his dieing on the cross saves us.

  17. So nice to see my home town! Thanks for posting. Oh and the heat is dang near unbearable. I never could understand why they don't have the sale during a cooler month.

  18. What fun!! Love the church sign...very cool message!!
    Looks and sounds like you had a terrific time. The scenery is amazing!

  19. Don't cha just LOVE "the 450"? We've gone each year for the past 6-7 years and get more treasures every time!We live about an hour from Gadsden so its an easy ride for us.

  20. I would love to go on this one day! We just did a smaller version yesterday in MI ~ didn't look nearly as fun as what you did. Great treasures!

    Not sure about the church sign either!

  21. 1300 miles, WOW! We only traveled about 400 and that wore me out! Great treasures, glad you had a good time! Love the mountain photos!

  22. some day I am going to get to do this!!!!

  23. I so wanted to do the sale this year. It sounds like you had fun and got a lot of great things. I see some pretty aqua things in your pile! Hugs, Sherry

  24. Jesus was crucified with nails through his body so I'm thinking that was the reference to body piercing. That's a good one.

  25. Looks like a fun time, with great treasures to boot! What a beautiful view those folks have, just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing, I've wanted to do some of those sales for a while now! Theresa

  26. I love this! Looks like so much fun. That area is so beautiful and so different than California. Im intrigued by different places of the country and how green they are. We are very hot and dry (brown) hahaha. Looks like you had such a great time. I love that!

  27. Oh wow!! Those are some beautiful shots! You made out with some terrific pieces!! Thank you for sharing!

  29. Oh, for views like that! I am also in valley vistas, sadly. But we do have the best beaches in the world, so that is a BIG consolation! Having fun reading your posts...glad I found you :-)
