If you're anywhere close to Southeast Missouri this week, be sure to check out one huge yard sale that is sure to please everyone! It's 100 miles of pure bargains and loads of fun. . . .
John and I have done some serious junkin' on these weekends every year. . . .I don't think we have ever made it the entire 100 miles. . . .The sales line the road. . . .and continue within the towns along Hwy 25. . . .
There's no way you'll be able to visit them all. . . .
Last year, we went two days, spent only $155 the entire weekend and came home with loads and loads of junkin' finds. . . .Here's just a few of the treasures. . . . To see more, Click Here
This year, I'm concentrating mostly on a Hoosier cabinet for the kitchen. . . .and a few needs for the farm. . . .I say that, but I know I'll end up with lots more. . . .I always do. . . .Can't resist a bargain. . . . We've bought everything from tires for the truck to clothes for our back and lots of antiques in between!
If you're thinking about trying your luck, the sale begins to the north at Jackson, Mo, or to the south at Kennett, Mo. Be ready for slow moving traffic and lots of stops. Take plenty of water and snacks. Wear comfortable walking shoes, lightweight clothing, a hat and plenty of sun screen. Lots of booths will be out in the hot sun. And, of course, bring plenty of cash. . . .Cash speaks loud on this treasure hunt!
