This past weekend was the 400 Mile Yard Sale along hwy 68 that runs east and west through Kentucky.



Me and hubby loaded up Thursday morning and headed out.

Thursday was the first day and there didn’t see to be as many vendors along the roadway as there usually is.

Maybe because it was the first day or maybe because it was raining!



This was our first stop just east of Hopkinsville, Ky. Usually this hill has 6-8 vendors but there were only 2 on Thursday.



Could be the weather!!!!

We usually park on the hill where the vendors are set up but it was too muddy.

I’m lagging behind hubby Smile










I liked this rusty white and turquoise table but didn’t come home with it.



another stop along the way



We did enjoy the trip and saw some great scenery along the way.




Jefferson Davis Monument in Fairview, Ky.

Yep, it’s in Kentucky…..not D.C.

An awesome view along hwy. 68.



lots of farms









I’m sad to say this is all I came home with.   Sad smile

I spent a grand total of $9.50.

Usually shopping this yearly 400 Mile Yard Sale, I will have the bed of the truck loaded and tied down and the back seat full of my junk treasures.

We traveled from Hopkinsville, Ky to Russellville, Ky and headed home.

I thought about making the trip again on Friday….but no….didn’t want to be disappointed….plus it was still raining.

Have any of you been on the 400 Mile Sale or on the yearly sale  that runs from Alabama to the north in August (can’t remember what it’s called)?  I’m thinking of hitting that one this year. Woohoo!!

Please leave a comment below….good….bad…indifferent….I read them all.

And stop by tomorrow for the stencil tutorial on the Stenciled Turquoise Wardrobe!

  2. Hi Kathy, you got some great pictures out of your adventure.
    I would love to go on a junk hunt like that, how fun!
    Where i live in Southwest Iowa, there’s a town named Walnut about 6 mi. from where I live. Suppose to be the antique capital of Iowa! Tiny town but every shop on main street is an antique/junk shop. This weekend they have what they call the “antique walk”. It is fri, sat, & sun. This year it rained here as well. If I knew how to simply download or upload or whatever, I would show you some of the things I’ve picked up and been inspired (by you) to re-paint, re-use etc. Thank you so much for your sharing and your inspiration!

    The 127 yard sale is the one you need to check out! It runs from Gadsden. Alabama across Lockout Mountain, Tennessee up through Crossville, Tennessee up into Kentucky. It is SO much fun! It is the first of August and is always HOT, but worth it!

    Oops! LOOKOUT Mountain, TN

    This will be my 2nd year going to the World’s Longest Yard Sale (the one you couldn’t remember the name of)with friends – you should definitely try this one! It’s amazing and I found so much great stuff last year. Of course, there’s no way to do all of it – last year we did KY-TN, this year we’re doing Alabama to however far we get…
    We always have a great time laughing at all the junk each of us buys and because we like the Beverly Hillbillies hauling it all back home to NC!!
