It was hot in Edinburg on Friday.
Considering the 102 degree index, it would be expected that most bargain shoppers getting the jump on Saturday’s 12th annual Route 11 Yard Crawl would just stay home, but that’s not the crawl mentality.
“It is very warm, but there’s always good deals. I found a whole bunch of movies today for less than $25. Who could pass that up,” said Christine Bush, a shopper who traveled from Richmond for the event.
During the crawl, over 43 miles of sidewalks and yards along Route 11 are filled with vendors selling anything from forgotten about items left in garages to handmade jewelry.
The crawl officially starts on Saturday, but veteran crawlers know that the party starts at the Edinburg Flea Market on Friday.
