World's Largest




OMG!!
 It was incredible, awesome and so fun!! Amazing Autumn weather, the colors along my drive from Buffalo to Schroon Lake were breath taking. My sister and I went over Friday after I arrived, not all the vendors were there. We previewed a bunch, bought a few things. Saturday was jam packed with vendors and people. They were expecting at least 10 thousand and I'd say I bummed into and cursed at least that many. I have never seen so many hillbillies in one spot, and mullets too! Like this guy working one of the booths! 

Lots of vendors with retail items, lots of junk and lots of over priced antiques. Greasy food and fried just about anything you want. Lots of sweets and baked goods too! I loved it and enjoyed walking the miles of treasures. I spent $10 here is my finds.... 








Here is how my wall is shaping up....still room for more!
 If you ever have a chance it is definitely a must do, just once or maybe twice in your life time.

What great finds...I love the wall, it looks really nice...

lytha said...

nice finds! but you need to arrange your wall plates like the constellations.

then you can ask people who visit, "which constellation is that?"

There is nothing that gets my heart racing as much as a huge garage sale like that.

You got great stuff, too.
