Highway 127 Finds

This past weekend, I went out to hunt for treasures on the World's Longest Yard Sale. This year the sale ran from Michigan all the way down to Alabama.

First up, is this little piano, music box. I scooped this up for only $3!

This is made in Japan. As you can see from the photos, it's covered in gold trim. Some of the gold is fading, but that doesn't distract from the beauty of this box.

On top of the piano, lovers are resting in a pastoral setting. Inside, the music box is lined in yellow with space to store a trinket or two or even a little love note.

Then I was lucky enough to find two planters. The first one is this little donkey wearing a blue hat.

I really couldn't believe my luck when I found this elephant planter. I love elephants. Wherever I travel, I try to pick up one as a souvenir keepsake, so I have quite a large collection of elephants.

Here is my little cow creamer. She's stamped Japan on the bottom. I think she's adorable. I've been wanting one of these for awhile, but each time I've found one, something's been wrong with it such as a chip or crack. I was really excited to find one in perfect condition.

I love to take pictures of the 127 sale. This year, I accidentally left my camera at home, but here are a couple of pictures from last year's sale.

Below is my favorite kind of vendor. You never know what treasures await when the tables are loaded down with so much stuff.

The vendor below didn't sell this three-wheeled bike last year. I know because he had it out again this year. I know I've been to this sale too many times, when I start to recognize the sellers.

Thanks so much for your visit today!
