Auction and Farmer's Market

After an exhausting 4th of July week, Hubby and I decided to take it easy last weekend and stay close to the 5th wheel.
We started out Saturday morning at an auction just a few miles away from our RV park.
We didn't find anything we couldn't live without, but decided to stick around to hear what the property would go for.
They always auction off the property first and this auction was no exception.  You can't tell much from the picture but it was a 2600 square feet brick home with 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms set on a large corner lot in a quiet country club type subdivision.  This house was move-in ready but could use a little updating.  We were shocked when it went for $127,500.
Then we headed to Farmer's Markets in Athens and Decatur.
It seems like just about everything is in season here in Alabama.
We came away with a lot of good things to eat!  The rest of the day was spent relaxing and eating some of our purchases.  Then it was time for church on Sunday and the weekend was gone!
This weekend we'll be back on the Civil War trail.


  1. I'm a little envious of your on-the-road life. Seems kind of boring around here day after day. I love the South, and it seems to hold all kinds of compelling scenery and history. I'm enjoying it vicariously through you. Someone did get a really nice deal on a house! :D

  2. Farmers Markets where you don't roast in the sun? Odd...


  3. Houses that end up on the auction block usually go for quite a bit less than retail.
