World's Longest Yard Sale 2012!

Yes, it is that time again....World's Longest Yard Sale!

This year I have chosen to take photos of weird, interesting and obscure moments observed during my cruising of the yard sale hood.

It started with this crusty old car with a simple sign in the window.

Just in case someone needs half of a it is.  I'm unsure how you move it...but, should you want is available.

These lamps were unbelievable.  The end table that could support the 26" wide base would seem like a dining table.  The picture cannot begin to prove the enormity of these ever so simple lamps.

This particular yard sale vendor had one table.  On it were stacks of souvenir plates.  Each represented some state, theme park, monument or biblical verse.  I think this is an odd collection.  Now, we will compound this oddness and tell you....every one of them had a plate hanger on the back.  What does this say to me?  Somebody had all these hanging somewhere.  Can you imagine walking into a home and viewing 65-75 plates all displaying some memorable locale?  Hmmmm.

I am always fascinated by taxidermy at a yard sale.  Do people just purchase the stuffed and hunted catch of other people?  This unusual piece of stiff animal life was mounted in a standing position and leaning on a ride able child's toy van (maybe even a milk delivery van).  Odd.

One word....creepy.

These two beauties are one of my favorites.  They just look so natural.  Note: the damsel holding the constantly running hose only has one arm.  This perpetual filling pool was a hot spot for the next two photos.  My car thermometer registered at 101 degrees.  

Yes, this is a precious little pumpkin puppy in a market basket carrier, sitting on a vintage table cloth while shaded by a broken umbrella.  Wow.

Now this wee little face reminded me of my own wee one.  This is a Frenchie and his name was Zorro.  Presh!

Now tell me attending a yard sale is not entertaining?

Tomorrow....what I purchased at the yard sale.....
