Thinking that in the smaller towns we might have better luck finding interesting pieces and better prices. What we really found is that its not so much where you look, but being in the right place at the right time. AND the prices are pretty much the same all over.
So instead of taking 6 hours to get there it took 2 days. It was fun and let me tell you that new iphone 4s came in handy as a navigator, and in finding thrift stores in the towns we went through. I thought I had done my homework on the internet before we left and had quite a list of places to stop at, but some had closed or moved so we needed alternates.
We rented a house on St. George Island so we had a place to park the trailer and go out without it once we got there.
We did really well in Panama City!
Thus begins my next few blogs about what we found and how I painted them.
And just so you don't think picking is all we did on vacation here are a couple of other pictures.
