Not much left in our booth. Finally caught our breath the 2nd or 3rd day to take pictures. Notice the display box made from a window in the persons booth behind ours. She took out one window pane and put in chicken wire to hang necklaces from. It was so cool.
Another side of our booth.
This is the area where we set up. It was in front of an antique store on Signal Mountain just north of Chattanooga, TN.

This is our 4th time to go to The World's Longest Garage Sale. We have never shopped the whole 650 miles. This was our 2nd time to set up and sell and we only shopped for about 10 miles. It starts in Gadsden, AL and goes to Ohio (or vise versa). There were people from 34 states that stopped by where we were. 

We came home for 2 days to re pack and we're headed to Ark. for Bargins Galore on 64 which starts in Fort Smith and goes to Conway (or vise versa).

Then next month we're setting up to sell at Round Top, Texas.

I'm so far behind on checking new posts here but hope to catch up before we leave in the morning. I must say there are some excellent posts and would love to leave a comment but being 2 weeks behind didn't think anyone would look back that far. There are some new people posting that I would like to say Welcome to. There were only 300 posts when I signed on to this site so I've seen everyone of them. :) Well except for the last 10 days worth.

chippingcharm writes: Yep, add me to the "jealous list"...sounds like too much fun! I feel like Jim, hard to find good "junky" garage sales these days. I do best when I take the "backroads" out of town :) Good luck with your upcoming sales! Laurel Posted: 7:55 am on August 12th

Oh yeah we are already planning for next year. We were so excited that we forgot to take any pictures. Had an awesome time and met alot of really nice people. Posted: 6:19 pm on August 11th

shabbychick writes: Great pics! Sounds like you had great sales!! Congrats.

We drove from Van Wert, Ohio...south to Lawrenceburg, KY...so many sales and so little time (just 2-1/2 days). Next year we're planning on four days, so we can get into Tennessee too!!

I'll be posting pics from our trip, and my finds too!!

Hoping to see you there next year!!

suewhitney writes: Ahhhh....looks like fun! Thanks for sharing the pics from this fabulous event. I am in the Adirondacks right now looking for a new kind of junk. Hmmm...I wonder what I will find?

Take care and good luck in your upcoming events. As you all know I am a big fan of Round Top/Marburger and hope to be maybe heading that way!

I too see that we have many new members...welcome, welcome, welcome!

Take care,
Sue

sandyrae writes: Jim is too funny... but we have about the same deal here in Iowa. Seems like all the cool shows are too far away. I am envious! Posted: 9:48 am on August 11th
JunkArchitect writes: There’s nothing even close to that in Connecticut or New England. The closest thing we have here are five houses in a row selling dirty children’s car seats, broken strollers and twenty year old stereo equipment. That’s a typical Connecticut garage sale.
I have seen signs for funnel cakes just in case you’re interested.

junktiqueboutique writes: Midge, shopping is WAY more fun, however selling is a little bit cooler cause we had a small fan for the 100 DEGREE TEMPS. I remember sweat rolling off my face going through boxes when we went shopping. It is a MUST SALE for everyone. Posted: 6:42 pm on August 10th

junkermidge writes: Oh, how fun! I've been just once(shopping)and I had a riot! What's more fun -- shopping or vending? And as far as commenting, you'll get back to it, but it sounds like right now you have some great junking adventures to tend to. Enjoy.
