Nebraska Junk Jaunt Success!

For the past 4 years my Mom and I have traveled the "Loup" of the Nebraska Biways for the annual "Nebraska Junk Jaunt". We have made it our once a year mother and daughter event. And might I add we are never dissapointed by the fun we have, people we meet from all over the U.S. and even sometimes people we consider "celebrities".

This year we were faced with a few adversities in the preparation for the big event. My job took me to Lincoln Tuesday night with continuing education classes scheduled for the rest of the week. I crammed my 8 hours in Wednesday and Thursday so we could start the jaunt early Friday morning from Grand Island Nebraska.

The pics here are from Grand Island stops.. with more pics to come in the next few days.

This corner jaunt was filled with lots of goodies. I purchased an old scale and a large seashell. My Mom found an adorable small blue patina wheel barrel here.
Love this trunk! The inside has been painted orange. It will work great in my soon to be newly painted bedroom. All of the goodies in it were from our first stop of the day. Prices were amazing at this stop. Honestly we should have just stayed here all day as the building was full and they just kept on bringing out more treasures.

These old wash stands were crazy cheap. After this stop we were spoiled by the prices.
Can't wait to share more with y'all. Anyone else take the trip? Would love to hear from you!
Stop back tomorrow and hopefully I will have more pics. I'm dissappointed that I didn't take more pics.

I wanted to take this jaunt so bad but the timing just didn't work out for me. (besides a non-payday weekend)! I have a friend that lives in Hastings and she said she had a blast. Her and her friend went, I guess her friend got more than what she did. My friend also had to mention to me that most of that "junk" would have been right up my alley. I had to thank her for that!! She also reminded me to take a truck next year...ha!!
Great to see that you had a great time and got lots of stuff!
