Redneck Yard Sale

 

Only in West Virginia!

    Last Saturday Chris and I were walking to Wheeling’s Centre Market to grab some late afternoon lunch and we stumbled upon the sign shown above. Now I am not exactly sure what a “redneck yard sale” is, but I sure was curious. However, we looked down the alley in the direction the arrow was pointing, but no yard sale was in sight. Perhaps the sale was already shut down for the day. Bummer!

    Although I missed the redneck yard sale, I did drive over to Pennsylvania to visit the Bull Creek Fleatique on Sunday morning. It was that kind of cool, crisp morning that lets you know fall is right around the corner. As I walked around I heard dealers mumbling about forgetting their gloves. The kettle corn booth smelled especially good this day (do aromas travel more easily when the air is cool?), and I began salivating for the sweet ‘n salty snack even though it was only a little after 7 AM. Here are a few pics:
