Just a Yankee Peddler, Yard Sale Junkie

Written by

Don't you just love a good find? I'm all about the hunt. I woke up early Saturday morning with a mission. I was going to find the treasures at the giant neighborhood sale in Copley. I grabbed Ravenna (because she is the only other person awake early on a Saturday at my house) and we were off!

Mostly, we found baby stuff. LOTS of baby stuff. NO THANK YOU! But we found a new pull behind golf caddy/cart thing for my son's clubs, a cute doily and a little bird that made me happy. (see bird & doily below.)

Then we came home, grabbed Lily (because we have to wait intil after 1pm to do anything with her), and headed off to the Yankee Peddler at Clay's Park! I love the Yankee Peddler! It's an old tyme, early American craft show held under the canopy of the trees at Clay's Park for three weekend every September. If you haven't haven't been, I highly recommend it. There's entertainment & amazing food on top of all the great hand made items. We scored some home made soaps, face creams, funky ear cuffs, some art, home made beef jerky and maybe left with some home made fudge. We definately ate the fresh apple dumpling with ice cream there though!

Lily spotted the "Queen of Junk" necklace and immediately said, "This pretty much sums up my life." She's not wrong! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree... don't tell my husband I said that!

There's still time to head out & enjoy the Yankee Peddler. The final weekend is September 21 & 22. Get all the details here. Happy Hunting!
