30 Mile Yard Sale

After missing the “world’s largest flea market” last year we’ve finally redeemed ourselves with what may be the world’s longest. Last Saturday we traveled to rural Nova Scotia (Caledonia, to be precise) to check out the 30 Mile Yard Sale. Most of the town was out in force, selling many lifetimes’ worth of possessions by the roadside. Some of our purchases include a small shoe collection for Katie, some storybooks from the 1930s/1940s, a wall clock that would not be out of place in any grandparent’s kitchen, two pieces of Nova Scotian-made hard-shell luggage, and a few tools for myself. Before heading home we stopped at the Hollow Log Cafe for iced coffee and chocolate peanut butter cheesecake. The service and presentation were excellent, and my only regret is not eating a whole meal there. See our photo post from a few days ago for more photos from our trip!
