Wow was it crazy in Celebration this morning. They do a town wide yard sale twice a year, October and March. I have never been there for one before. What a surprise. Tons of people participated and many, many more came out for the bargains. It is such a big event that they even hand out maps with the locations of all the people in the event. It is also a 3 day event, but I'm sure Saturday is their BIGGEST day. I have tons of pictures to share with you. For those of you who live in Central, Florida or are coming for a visit, you should check out the website: http://www.celebrationtowncenter.com/ee/. On the main page, click on special events. This place is awesome.
These pictures are kind of blurry, sorry. The town had a section set up for people who lived in apartments and couldn't set up there. I am trying to show you the massive amount of people there.
A couple of different set ups people had on the streets. And no I did not purposely take a picture of some ladies butt.
Some decorations in downtown. They had scarecrows everywhere. The stores had great discounts on things. This year is the first year Celebration has allowed the stores to participate in this event. I say it was a success. This next Friday and Saturday night, they will have Falling Leaves.This is some of the store fronts. Notice the upstairs apartments. You really don't see alot of that around here.
This is a picture of the small lakefront in downtown Celebration. In the background is the Celebration Hotel. For those of you who are BUCS fans, that is where they stay during camp. Celebration has rocking chairs on the lake front so you can rest your weary bones after shopping or dining. To the left of this picture is a water fountain for the kids to play in. I couldn't get more pics because we were in moving traffic.
They also had a pumpkin patch set up in the middle of town. Not only did they sell pumpkins, but also bales of hay and cornstalks. It was a very busy place today too.
We really didn't buy alot today. This was our first deal of the day(ignore my dirty dishes in the sink, lol). These are vintage Mickey and Minnie animated dolls. They kinda dance when you plug them in. We thought they'd be great Santa's helpers this year.
This was probably the deal of the day if you are a handy man......This is a wooden wheelbarrow for plants. The only thing is, the wheels are missing. But you couldn't beat the price......FREE! Hubby is trying to figure out how to make wheels....me, I'm gonna see what E-bay has to offer. My head is already spinning with ideas about how to decorate it for the different seasons.
This is a BIG metal tub. I have always wanted one, don't really know why. I figure it will come in handy to bathe the dogs or to put beer and soda on ice at family gatherings. I'm sure we'll figure out some other uses. Couldn't beat if for $5.
Those were my adventures for the day. Hut and I must have walked close to 10 miles today. Once you found a good parking space (we got really lucky a couple of times today), you walked as far as you could down one side of the street and then walked back and moved on to the next section. This was definitely an all day venture.
I apologize for no blog last night. We had a house fire down on the main road and while the electricity was on (Thank you God)....the cable was off. So no TV, computer or phone for the night.
And I want to than Grannie Annie for doing a picture of me. I won a contest on her blog about a month ago. She emailed me the pic today. You really must check out her blog "Fools Rush In". Just click here: GRANNIE ANNIE . I know you will love it and her.
Here I am....it's kinda small here since I wasn't sure how to enlarge it, but you can still see how wonderful it is. I just love it. Please check her out.
