Finished the route today. Tired eyes from looking at so much stuff. Endless, really. Sunburnt arms. Lighter wallet. Filled-up cargo area in the suburban. So many treasures.

Made it to Gadsden oping for some sort of finish line, but instead, were met with worn-out sellers slowly packaging up the stuff that didn’t move. We had a meal and kept on going to Birmingham.

Great coverage of the Yard Sale. The wife and I journey up to Signal Mountain from Chattanooga every year to see who can find the coolest shit ever. Glad you got to experience the “life.” Aweseome.

Definitely some awesome finds on your flickr stream.

Curious about how you guys heard about the sale? I lived in Ohio for several years (and we’re talking only minutes away from Hwy 127) and I don’t recall anyone ever talking about it before.

We drove from Winnipeg to Columbus Ohio in June. Americans have way better swag than Canada… found some really cool olde stuff… some had to leave behind,… they haunt my thoughts… sigh.
nice pics!

I have to say THANK YOU for the why america is fucked video. So true. You can’t let someone who isn’t trained get into the designers seat. They should have some sense of what works and what doesn’t.

Also I love that little “fucking corel draw” bit. I laughed out loud with that one.
