Last week a fellow vendor shared the news with me about an upcoming event,
...The 301 Endless Yard Sale!
Sounds like "heaven on earth," right?
IT WAS!!! :)
The 301 Endless Yard Sale ran along Hwy 301
through four counties in NC,
Halifax, Wilson, Johnson, and Harnett.
In it's second year,
the yard sale was patterned after The 127 Longest Yard Sale
and HGTV's "Flea Market Flip."
From right outside of Dunn to Selma,
the amount of roadside yardsales was insane and overwhelming!
(In a good way!)
We went on Friday and didn't get started until 12.
Unfortunately I had a few things to do earlier that morning.
Next year I'll be hitting the trail much earlier.
The next few pictures are of my finds.
There were many places and items I intended on going back for,
but time and the rain hindered that.
Got this chair for practically free, which my husband said was too much! Ha!
But I loved the lines, it was super sturdy, and I immediately had a vision for it!
The four handmade bonnets were another great deal,
and remind me of my Grandma Maybell who made many of these years ago.
They will be heading to my booth soon!
Cute little vintage Japan Rooster and Chicken set...
Love the print below, but it has a few rough spots and scratches
and will probably be transformed into a chalkboard.
A sewing box full of old notions...
The vintage quilted bear was one of my favorite finds,
but he smelled a little less than sanitary.
Unfortunately I washed him and the dark spots appeared,
...worsening the drier he gets.
He might not make it.
I bought him from a sweet, witty older lady.
She marked the tag... "real good bear boy."
Most of the vendors were very nice and personable!
I enjoyed talking "junk" with them!
The first piece I bought of the day was the beautiful nautical tray,
...may be a keeper!
The next picture isn't the most attractive,
but my husband got the best deals of the day!
One was this pristine, "like new" gaming seat for $100,
which new cost over $1300!
We had one happy boy when we got home!
The ride along Hwy 301 was quite enjoyable itself,
many beautiful homes and quaint old towns to view.
Several old "Motorcourts" still in business,
which made me think of a few Mary Kay Andrew's books.
The last picture is of a particular home we fell in love with along the trail,
one we'd like to pattern the farm house after.
Wish I could've gotten a few more detailed pictures!
Maybe I'll meet some of you on the trail... Hwy 301, next year!
Until then... Happy junkin' ya'll!
