Ga-Zillion Mile Yard Sale 2010!

I thought the Ga-Zillion Mile Yard Sale (GMYS) was going to be missed this year....but, the gods of junk were with me!  My little friend spent the morning at a triathlon, and readily agreed to hit a few good spots before she passed out from the heat of the day.  Being a veteran of the GMYS I knew a couple of great stops where multiple vendors would be located.  I had to strategically use my time for I knew she was going down fast.

The above sign was quite pleasing to me.  If only it were true.

The first image we walked upon was this....a mannequin leg sticking out of a lamp shade...flanked by nutcrackers.  The leg was for sale...$19.99.  This is one of the many reasons I go.  You can't make this stuff up.

And yes, this is a uni-armed mannequin wearing a former Dolly Parton wig... holding a hose with running water....I suppose creating a form of a fountain...but became the local watering hold for any pets that were shopping this day.  It had to be 102 degrees with severe humidity!  whew it was miserable!

It has become a GMYS tradition to stumble upon taxidermy animals.  What is up with that?  This gigantore head on the right....

followed by this life sized "whatever" perched on a wood box with tiny dribbles of dead weeds mounted at each corner.  It was only $1500.  Do people actually purchase these things....or is it there to amuse me?

Just a few random shots of some fun vendors I always go see.  

The Ga-Zillion Mile Yard Sale....Home Away From Home!
