Just a few adventure pics

The last few weeks I've really begun to consider this as a business not just a hobby. I have quit putting everyone else's priorities first and quit feeling guilty about auctions and sales. Just because I LOVE my job, doesn't make it any less of a job.

I took a few picture of places I've ventured. This first set is the Labor Day auction in Imperial, Ne. This is the first time I've been and it is HUGE. I consider myself a die hard for flea markets, auctions, I love it and love the atmosphere. But this one was even too much for me. I would have left earlier...I had spent all of my money anyway, but I had locked my keys in the pickup!
These pictures are only a view from one spot, there was an entire fair ground stuffed with good stuff.

In Overton, Nebraska there is an amazing shop called Tiede's. It is full of goodies, set up nicely and clean. Here is one of the Pyrex sectionsBehind Tiede's is another little shop, words can't describe
It was a junk shop with non junk shop prices...but a fun adventure!

Nebraska Junk Jaunt 2009

Starting Friday my 11 year old daughter and I are heading to the Junk Jaunt, an annual 300 mile yard sale running north/south through central Nebraska.
I have never been, but am very intrigued.

We are 'roughing it'. We have a tent, taking the pickup and my husband even rounded up a trailer for me to take (I was very surprised!).

Have any of you ever done one of the excursions?

We will be gone for 3 days and I'm trying to think of what we need to pack besides COMFY walking shoes, bubble wrap and money!

I'd love to hear your stories and suggestions. I hope to bring you many tales of fun when we return!

1960s Butterfinger Paper Dress Part 2

Okay, so I don't want this dress just laying around at my house. I personally don't like to be responsible for any valuables! So I put it up for Ebay auction, you can watch it or bid on it here.
