It was actually more like a 13-mile long sale because Watertown is 12 miles off the Interstate, and there were yard sales set up the entire way. There was a lot to see and a lot to eat including an inordinate amount of fried pies (which I have never tried). One kid was even hawking "organic" whoopie pies (I must admit I was intrigued, but not enough to buy one). But, the food vendor that really got my attention was this one:
Yes, this is the South and apparently we will deep fry anything even Oreos. Heaven help us. I did not try these either. I stuck with a hot dog and Coke.
Now, onto what you really want to see . . . the loot. I didn't take photos as I shopped because I was too hot and distracted. So, here are my finds displayed in my dining room . . .

The two black bird pieces of art are actually needlepoint on linen and very pretty. I've always seen the ceramic glove mold forms for sale so I thought they could go nicely in the booth. Who doesn't need an extra hand? Ha. The green pottery dish called to me because it resembles malachite, which I have been seriously lusting after lately.

After doing a little research on the marking on the back of the dish, it turns out it is Blue Mountain Pottery (BMP) from Canada and is popular among pottery collectors. I just thought it was pretty.
Oh, and the last thing I found was this black lacquer, brass and mirrored side table . . .
Isn't she glamorous? Just have to dust her off and shine her up a bit.
Some other loot I found earlier in the week that will also make an appearance at the booth soon . . .
this large abstract and this really pretty blue ceramic and brass lamp.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
