Show & Tell…the 2017 127 finale

Day Three…Frankfort, KY to College Hill, OH ( and then back to ATL)

Bring on the day…

 

Today was a first….we made it to Ohio! What will 2018 bring? Michigan perhaps?

 

Although I absolutely love the treasure hunting, the scenic road trip and of course the pancake dinners at Cracker Barrel what I love, love, love the most are the amazing, kind and interesting people I meet along the way. This year we ended the trip in College Hill, Ohio and met such a wonderful, spirited, joyful group of people from Serve NCH doing great things not only for their immediate community but also the greater community by collecting medicine bottle for Doctors Without Borders. Good vibes…

 

Ta-Da…

 

 

Only 353 days until next year…Whose in?

It’s 127 time…Show & Tell Day One

Can you believe it…it’s that time of year again. The days are long, the weather is warm and the 127 is on!

If you aren’t familiar with what the 127 is I will quickly get you up to speed…it is the World’s Longest Yard Sale! Yes you heard it right…it is held the first week of August , it’s on rural route 127, it runs from Alabama through Michigan and it’s 690 miles long!

Whenever I share my enthusiasm of this epic adventure I get one of the following two responses…Oh wow that sounds AMAZING, what’s it like? or eww!  I get more wows that ewws but I get it, treasure hunting isn’t for everyone! So for those who are curious instead of a photo recap of this year’s trip I decided to do my 127 Show & Tell video style…

One rental mini van, three days, four states and 961 miles and this is how it went down…

Day One…Signal Mountain, TN to Crossville, TN

 

 

Check out tomorrow for day two’s clips from the road!

MuuMuu Mash-Up

When great things come together they become AMAZING!!!

No different than when peanut butter & chocolate got together and created the perfect combo platter of the peanut butter cup…is what happened just last weekend when MuuMuu of the Month magically collided with the World’s Longest Yard Sale.

This is my fifth year partaking in the reindeer games of the 127 (aka longest yard sale). Every year there is a different approach ranging from the crew, the states covered, what  off shoot road trips to make and last but not least the bounty that comes home with me. And no different than the previous 4 years this year took a new twist…instead of shopping the 127 I reversed the dynamic and took my Style With No Regret wares to set up shop on Signal Mountain…it was a blast!

MuuMuu Magic,

How I Roll

how i rollhow i roll two

last but not least…

This is my final report out from the epic 2015 longest yard sale. This was by far one of if not my best finds from this year’s treasure hunt!

Roller skates have been on my must get list for the past few years. I have gone back and forth on should I buy new or wait for the perfect pair of old school skates…and here is a perfect example of the age-old quote “good things come to those who wait”. And if good things mean super fab throw back sneaker skates that is ohhh sooo true! These wheels came home with me for an honest $5!!!

As a bonus track which was something I have never seen…businessman skates.

Until next year,

JSY
