Hwy 55 Yard Sale
I happened to see this first annual Hwy 55 Yard Sale advertised on Craig's List and since it was such a spectacular day Friday, mom and I decided to check it out. It still needs to grow, there weren't a lot of sales, however, it was totally worth going and we had a great time! Hit the little towns of Finchville, Shelbyville and Eminence. Stopped at the Ruritan Club in Finchville where it was headquartered and had a nice little lunch complete with country ham and homemade chocolate chip cookies! Mom wanted to stop at an antique mall in Shelbyville so we went in there and she found more hats and a dress form from her new favorite booth! We also hit a small antique shop, a Goodwill, a Peddler's Mall and Big Time Bargains!
I scored vintage Christmas, a couple of readers, a few old children's books, yet another set of encyclopedias (from 1939-great pictures and color plates!), a Raggedy Ann doll, a neat pictures of a paper doll like lady, a scrabble game, an Upwords game, a cash ledger, a bag of vintage grosgrain ribbons with original labels, foil Christmas ribbon, bird notecards, foil sticker alphabet letters in their original package and 7 creepy doll heads! Most for my etsy shop and just a few keepers! Mom found some vintage hats, a dress form a couple of shelves, some books, cookbooks and a couple of Christmas angels for one of her trees.
