Georgia's longest yardsale Peaches to Beaches weekend

Here's a few more ( OK a lot more ) pictures from mine and Beth's yard sale weekend including the fun ladies we met and some of the goodies we found..



don't you just love homemade jam's, jellies and relishes. Beth was oohing and aaaahing about Mayhaw jelly which I had never tasted. Mayhaw Jelly is a rare and unique southern treat so I'm told. Mayhaw berries are native to South Georgia swampy areas. Well guess what she found and shared and now I'm totally hooked .. Thank you girlfriend I have eaten more biscuits in 2 weeks than I have in 2 years ..it's yuuuuuuuummmmmmmy



We met Miss Fancy Cat Heirloom Tomatoes of Marshallville, Ga where I was able to pick up some great plants including a few that I had never heard of like an Italian tree which is said to have vines that can grow up to 15-feet with enormous meaty 1-2 pound, 4-5-inch, red tomatoes with superior sweet flavor.. Oh yeah my mouth is watering just thinking about a just picked still warm from the sun .. tomato sandwich... and a big thank you to the lovely lady in Perry that allowed me to have the last of a few variety's since we were from out of town.



After we left Perry we headed south where we got to met the lovely Miss May Tucker who asked us not to put her on Facebook ..lol She was so sweet we could have talked with her all afternoon she and a few others put together a shop just for the Peaches to Beaches weekend and it was stacked full of goodies..





You can see all of her treasure at the McRae flea market booth #13 .. Everywhere we went Blue Ball jars were selling for $8 - $10 She was selling hers for $2 dollars .. stop by and see her if you are in the area ..



aren't these babies cute .. Miss Daphne Lewis is the owner of Chalo Sulky She and her babies were out enjoying all the fun. Beth and I sure could have used these babies a few time before we finished shopping ..lol



and now lookie lookie at what I found . I paid $60.00 for her... She is so pretty I can't wait to get her spruced up and moved into the house.



her pretty perfect mirror



with perfect pretty holders for my perfect mirror ..


and how about this great birdhouse it was perfect on it's own but after we sat it on the post I remembered those wrought iron gingerbread pieces I found back in October and had hubby attach them now it's GORGEOUS !!!



got a great deal on the 2 stools a total of $5 dollars for both, the enamel pot $4.00 and how cute is the sign I picked up for the hubby.. Think I will hang it on the gate maybe it will help scare solicitors away..lol



some great baskets a pretty green bowl that matches a pitcher that I already had that belonged to the hubby's grandmother. Picture frames, more birdhouses, oyster shells and don't forget that $5.00 box of huge pine cones.. We had such a wonderful time. Beth found some great treasures also my poor Tahoe was packed there was so many yard sales Saturday that it took us 8 hours to go 70 miles I kid you not there was no way to see it all .. Peaches to Beaches ROCKS




and a few more pictures...lol..

I'm a little late for Outdoor Wednesday over at Miss Susan's A SOUTHERN DAYDREAMER but there is still plenty of time to go checkout all of the other wonderful blogs that joined in so come along...



Hugs ya'll from Beth and me

  1. Oooh girl, don't you just love that Macrae Flea Market, I went there last year and fell in love with the place! I found a few pieces for my ruby red glassware collection and other depression glass pieces. If you are ever in the area again, let me know... there is an old fashioned cabin/steakhouse there just outside of McRae that has the greatest salad bar ever (and why are those dis-appearing?) along with steaks, seafood and country cooking. top it off with great bands that sing/play motown and other great music. country girl heaven. then you can walk out onto the deck that overlooks a huge pond and the ducks fly right up to the railing and eat right out of your hands.
    Maybe next year we can get together...
    love the photos!

  4. I know this post is more than a year old but I just now read it so I am commenting! I love your pictures from the Peaches to the Beaches Yard Sale. I recognise several of the spots! I love the way you did the little bird houses. That flea market in Mcrae is always great. If you haven't already, check out Nostalgia at McRae Marketplace on facebook. It is Lillie Jo one of the great booth owners. I will put it on your page. Have a great day! I will try to stay ahead of you next year at the P & B!!! LOL!!!
