This is our set up for Saturday at the highway 40 yard sale￼. Today it is sunny not a cloud in the sky temperature will only barely reach 80° and a light breeze￼. Perfect! ￼
It is 9:30 and we already have a very nice size crowd. We are looking forward to sales and having a successful Saturday￼.
The off and on rainfall this evening did lead however to a very beautiful sunset.￼ We have finished our first day of selling at the US Highway 40 yard sale.￼ We will have more pictures coming as we will be here through this coming Sunday￼.
Today we set up at a local event venue that is trying to establish a monthly flea market. So far the crowd is moderate but steady. Hopefully the crowd will grow and we are looking forward to a brisk pace of sales.￼
The weather has been great the last couple of days. We have been fortunate enough to sell some of our merchandise at the Highway 40 Yard Sale. Top picture is beginning Friday, bottom is Saturday 2 PM.
Finally getting a sunny day. Lots of vendors now set up and a decent crowd is beginning to arrive.
The rain started last night at midnight. Sixteen hours later it has let up, but more is forecast tonight and tomorrow. This is really putting the damper on preparations for our Highway 40 Yard Sale.
We have set up some of our tables, put out a little bit of merchandise, and covered up with waterproof tarps. All day we have been watching the tables, but no wind to speak of and tarps have remained in place. Other vendors are also waiting to get set for the sale that was scheduled to start today.
We enjoyed a lovely sunset this evening. Hope the forecast rain misses us tomorrow!
This shows the beginning of our set up for the Highway 40 yard coming this week. The sale is an annual event and it follows old US 40. Hundreds of folks set up and thousands shop along the route.
We’ll keep you posted as the week goes on. Sher and I always enjoy this event. We missed it last year due to Covid-19.
One of our typical setups
This has been a rainy day in Central Indiana. We are back in Indiana getting ready for one of the big antique shows we try to do every year. Of course, we didn’t get to go last year. Though the Highway 40 is really a very big yard sale, we do very good selling our vintage items and bigger items that we have found in our travels.
It becomes a big clean out the garage month for us. We set up at the Dunreith Baptist Church east of Greenfield, Indiana. It is such a great place for us to set up. The pastor and his wife are very nice and helpful. They let us park the RV right behind our display, which is so nice because we don’t have to travel every night.
Highway 40, also known as Old National Highway, is a historic road and fun to travel just to see the old buildings and historic sites. This year the sale will be from June 2 to June 6th. It starts in Baltimore, MD and continues thru St. Louis, MO. It draws lots of people and some interesting characters. We enjoy doing this show.
Striking a Pose
This is a novel way to make a living, or at least provide a clever side hustle. We saw this fellow at a town festival where we had set up as vendors. He showed up at noon on Saturday (of the weekend festival) and just walked around. He did not say a word, but every so often would freeze in a position and hold it for several minutes, thus becoming a big plastic toy soldier.
