wanderlust? check.

boots? check.

vintage willie nelson concert tee? check.

{joe pete...early this morning...eastbound & down.}

our next great adventure is upon us. the endless yard sale… aka the route 127 yard sale. that’s right, y’all. it’s over 600 glorious miles of junk. over 600 miles of yard sales. from michigan to alabama….winding through ohio, kentucky, tennessee, and georgia along the way. 600 miles of my happy place. 600 miles of dashboard therapy.

the endless yard sale, comin at ya compliments of HGTV & the TRAVEL channel.

it’s the battle of the deal seekers…it’s survivor goes junkin’. it’s olympic style garage sale action. 3 teams will meet head to head at the endless yard sale. 3 teams have been selected to represent the few, the proud, the junkiest. who will win? who has out-trained the rest?

the gloves are off. it’s winner take all. and we’ll be there to host this game show style competition.

we’ll be there…with our griswald-style family in tow… and of course, joe pete will be in the house as our official smokey-and-the-bandit-style-junk-buying-deal-spotting driver. what?! what?! for anyone that doesn’t know who joe pete is, just head on down to warrenton this antiques week…he’s the baddest, junkiest, junker this side o’ kathmandu!  he’s our brother in junk, our fellow road warrior, and one of our very best friends.

y’all stay tuned…i’ll be tweetin, instagramming, and blogging from the road.

look out world…it’s gonna get junkyyyyy.

endless yard sale…here we come!!!

    I don’t know what I’m more upset about, that I’m not getting to go, or that Joe Pete didn’t tell me he was going! Have a blast and tell Joe Pete I want an olive bucket if he finds one cheap!

    Ok girls, it was our 2nd day and we weren’t sure how the day was going to go and then……there you were at our second garage sale of the day. Me and my partner drove all the way from Washington state and met up with my sister and niece to do this garage sale adventure. We stopped you and asked for a picture and talked with you for a short time before you had to get back to filming. You gals are AMAZING!!!! Sooooo friendly and fun and nice. We love you even more!!! And you made the whole trip worth it. We are designers ourselves and LOVE to get inspiration from others talent. It was a pleasure and a joy. Thank you for making our trip amazing and something we will talk about for years to come!! We are fans for life! Yours, Michael and Ernest

    One day I would love to take the shop girls and go on the endless yard sale. You are so lucky. Can’t wait to see your big adventure.

    Heee, heeee, heeee! Yeeee Haw fellow Texas gals. Giddy yup and have at it. Tennessee is gorgeous for sure and, you should certainly find some fresh pickings in OHIO and MICHIGAN! . I’m from OHIO and I know both states are awesome and very different from Texas. That is some distance to travel. So, God be with you and git home safe. Looking forward to October 5th!
