Yesterday, my husband Ray and I drove north on US 11 Antique Alley from Gadsden Alabama to Rising Fawn Georgia. This event happens every year, where people living along US 11 set up mostly garage sales and antique sales in their front yards. The drive was beautiful, especially north of Fort Payne, where the mountains became more prevalent. Good deals were made along the way, including four ladder back chairs for a little less than $30, an old fashioned push (not motorized) lawn mower that a friend has been wanting to get, some old paint by number floral pictures, a chair pad that massages and heats up for 50 cents, and a quirky wooden clog I want to use as a planter! What I would consider a very successful trip!
