We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves, but for us it was totally exhausting. The traffic was terrible, the roads small and unpassable in places. People would just walk right across the road in front of you...so you were on pins and needles all the time. And the heat was just draining.
I'm sorry to say the sales were nothing like I remember them from 4 yrs ago. So many booths just had old clothes or trinkets from the $ stores. Or just pure junk.
We started in Gadsden, Al. and worked our way to Fort Payne were we spent the night. I only found 2 items up till then. When we got up we hit I 59 and went to Chatanooga and hit the sale, we went about 1 mile in 40 mins going up the steep curvy mountain and never got out of the car, traffic bumper to bumper, so we turned around and went back down the mountain and went farther north and rejoined the 127 flea market trail there.
I found a lot of my Hall's collectables after that, Mid TN and Kentucky had some nice sales.
Every year if we are traveling, usually in Oct around my Birthday, DH buys me a doll, he knows I love dolls...(just a child at heart) ...lol....so this year was no different, he bought me a nice life size little girl and we even found a desk for her to sit in...how neat is this.
I didn't get to take too many pictures of the sales but will post some on another post.
Just wanted to check in and say hi. But got so much to do today, can't stay and chat long. Just so happy to be home. I love to travel, but can't wait to get home when I'm gone.
Hope everyone has a blessed day.
