Not the guy but you get the idea......
Shopping day 2 proved to be much more productive than day 1. Instead of giving you a long narrative I thought I would just post a few pics to let you see what I saw/bought.
Need a 15ft. giraffe anyone???
A little pricey...but I can see it now.
Food warmers into amazing sconces.
I will only make 1 trip to the car!!!
This vintage beauty will be so hard to part with. Patina to die for!
CRAP....won't fit in the trailer!
Some of these beauties headed to the shop!
Ahhhhhh....perfect way to end a long, hot, sweaty, dirty shopping day.
I woke up the next morning still longing for sleep, but gathered my stuff /loaded up and headed home. I still had money to spend so I was ready to shop my way home. I hit several small little flea markets with no success then set my sites on Black Dog Salvage in Roanoke, VA. HGTV show...thought it was worth a stop.
I hate to be a "hater", but I was really disappointed at Black Dog. Maybe I had built up it's greatness so much in my mind...not sure, but not impressed. One whole side of the huge building was filled with vintage/not vintage/interior designer dealers. I expected an amazing mess of salvage treasure, not wholesale products and new rugs....ok, I'm off tangent, sorry.
I did hit a couple of amazing Virginia flea markets that finished off my trip with a bang.
Now $64,000,000 question??? Would I go to the World's Longest Yard Sale again? Yes and No.
Yes... I would absolutely go if someone else went with me. No...I would not go by myself again. It's such a long drive so you're tired to begin with. Top it off with sensory overload seeing so much stuff for sell. I'm sure I passed on some great pieces because I had lost my marbles in the heat and crowds.
All in all, I had a great time. I'm so glad I did it. If I hadn't, I'd have always wondered what the hub bub was all about. Who knows....might have some takers for next year's sale.
Have a good one,
