My sister and her twenty-one-year-old daughter have taken off on an enviable mom/daughter weekend. First of all, they get to spend some great time, together; but secondly, they are off on the great Nebraska Junk Jaunt. The website describes it as “a 300 mile continuous Yard Sale in central Nebraska. Each of 35-40 towns organizes a 3-day yard sale. Most towns will have at least one “Central Set-Up” location for vendors. Last year, this fun event drew 20,000 people from 32 states and 70 of 93 Nebraska counties.” This is a garage sale queen’s dream! – lol – Imagine the miles and miles of “stuff” and the bargains! Oh my!
The event has even been organized, so that if there are any historical or “touristy” stops along the way, you will know about them. They actually print up a shopper’s guide and have local hotels and motels that are offering specials for the “jaunters” staying over. Too fun! I can’t wait to hear how this trip turns out. Hmmm…maybe I should set up a garage sale on the route, next year. Bet we could do a whopping business!
