We went yesterday about 9. Got there about 11. We were leaving for home about 3, totally exhausted, but happy to have gone. I wanted to price antique stuff and look at garden art. I got a lot of good antique info. We pulled over on the side of the road quite a few times. I didn't take many photos because I didn't have time to think about it! We were too busy seeing it all. By the time we got to Warrenton, where all the good"junk" is, we were really getting tired and cranky. Decided to head home, so probably missed the best yard stuff. Plan to return in April...when it'll be cooler (but possibly wetter).
There was one guy that was selling art made with old pots and pans, bottle caps, and anything he could pick up at yard sales. We really liked his stuff, even tho it was so expensive. I took a quick pic as we walked up to the booth because I thought you'd be amazed at what you can do with those old pans, chairs, rakes, and shovels you were throwing away! He had wooden fish decorated with bottle caps (for scales) that started at over $200.

DD found a link to his "fish." Scroll down and there's a pic of one of the ''sculptures.''
