Bargains Galore on 64!

Bargains Galore 64 is always a blast!

Here is a little info from their site so that you know what it is!

THE 12th ANNUAL BARGAINS GALORE on 64 will take place on August 11-13, 2011, Thursday through Saturday. If you haven't been out looking at all the antiques, collectibles and just great buys, you have missed 160 miles of yard sales. "Shop until you drop" along Highway 64 (which parallels Interstate 40) from Fort Smith past Conway to Beebe, Arkansas

The River Valley of Arkansas is proud to host another of our Bargains Galore on 64 yard sale extravaganzas. This annual event is held on Thursday through Saturday, the second weekend in August and offers a great opportunity for commercial vendors, non-profit groups, clubs, schools, churches, civic organizations, etc., to promote their products or service. There are no limitations on what vendors may market, though we particularly encourage antiques and collectibles.

Designated a "Travel Treasure" by Southern Traveler magazine, the event draws family vacationers and dealers, buyers and sellers alike, who "treasure" not only great bargains along Hwy 64 but also the friendly atmosphere and the beautiful vistas that prevail.

We have grown tremendously each year, thanks to the great support of the various chambers of commerce and other tourist promotion agencies throughout the River Valley area.

We left out Wednesday afternoon after Alyssa's drs appt and drove to Russellville and stayed there for the night! Alyssa got her time in the pool (the requirement for her) and then we vegged out in the room for the night!

Then it was up bright eyed and early at 5AM to get the 3 of us through the shower bags in the truck and off to eat breakfast! We decided we wanted cracker barrell since it was only a couple blocks down the street! Then came the rain. It poured and poured for forever we ended up going to walmart after breakfast to kill time until the rain stopped then we headed out yard sale-ing. We had to contend with the rain off and on most of the day but we did get some good finds! We made it to Clarksville later that day and fed the kid and checked in to our hotel. It had a hot tub (which I'm sure you're guessing thats where I spent part of the evening and your right) LOL! The next morning it was up at 4:30 get ready do breakfast and head out on the road for more deals! We finally made it home around 6:30PM friday and we were exhausted. Not long after unpacking the truck and loading my stuff in to my car and getting home it started storming and we lost electricity (just what you wanna come home to) which we didn't get back until around 11:30! All in all it was a good but long exhausting trip!

Now for the few pictures that I have!
