Well, we have alot of thrift stores and yard sales here in Kentucky so, I'm sure you'll find something you want while you're here. Our area started one of those long mile yard sale things last year. It's starts near the border of Cincinnati, OH and trails through Kentucky. It's about 25-30 miles and growing but, that wasn't until August last year so it will probably be in August again this year. This year it's expected to go possibly as far as Lexington as more people find out about it. Me & a few of my family members participate in it. It's called the U.S. 25 yard sale.

BigTall do you buy vintage/antiques? I thought all your stores were new stuff.

BTW did you ever move to San Fran or are you staying in Denver?

I would love to go to a 400 mile long yard sale or Brimfield.

We sell 99.9% new stuff

You can get new stuff at yard sales but you got to know machine shrink wrap vs hand shrink wrap job! Even most thrift stores these days shrink wrap stuff
Lol that don't make it new!

OK, sounds like a plan.
I was there back in 2005. Almost moved to the St Augustine/Jacksonville area. Was so close to signing on having a house built.

have fun and be safe BT. Wish I had time to do a vacation/shopping spree like that. LOL but alas I have to do my yard saling/thrift shopping in between picking up kids and running other errands and only locally. Sad But what I find is still fun and profitable.

Sounds like you had a great time BT. If you get a few moments, why not post a few pics of some of the great things you found so we can see too.
