Garage Sale-ing with the hubby on Hwy 141!

This is *most* of the haul today!

newer adding machine, a timer thingie for something electrical, and a singer sewing machine

Had a BLAST!  Today with the hubby, hitting the Highway 141 100 miles of garage sales.  It’s an annual event, always held the first fri & Sat of August, rain or shine. 

Today The weather was just about perfect -- allowing it’s a hot & humid August day in Iowa.

Still, we had a grand time and found some great stuff, some of what I’m sharing below in pictures.  Then we went to HuHot for lunch, and oh my, that’s tasty. 

Another sewing machine, off brand but a great tag on front!  old clock, old measuring tape, some sort of gringer thingie with a great tag on it!

I think they have really good crab ragoons, and the last couple of times we have gone they have had this mild sliced sausage .. so delicious with pineapple, alittle onion , teriyaki, hoisin, and garlic sauces / oils. 

mostly old car parts... the guy claimed one of the gauges was from a model T, but sold it to me for $2.00 so not sure if I believe it.. but they are older for sure.. the crystal is glass!

All in all, it was a near perfect day spent with the Hubby. 

there is soooo much in this flat!! Check out the cigar box of little tiny light-bulbs!
If you are in central Iowa and love to do garage sales, it's still going on tomorrow.. get your butt on the road !
