Visiting Blue Ridge, Georgia - an Estate Sale and More!

Blue Ridge, Georgia, is located about 90 miles north of Atlanta. A neighborhood friend and her family have a lake home in the area and just love to spend time there - she has been effusive in praising not just the area around their home but also the quaint village/town of Blue Ridge. Therefore, when I saw an ad for a "huge estate sale" in Blue Ridge, I tried very hard to talk a friend into taking the long drive with me. It worked out so well that the day was beautiful and fall colors are still all around!
Take a deep breath and relax…
Surround yourself with beauty, relaxation and natural fun in Georgia’s Blue Ridge, only 90 miles north of Atlanta via I-575 and Hwy 515, but a million miles away from the traffic, stress and anxiety of the city. With 106,000 acres located in the Chattahoochee National Forest, Blue Ridge is definitely the cure for whatever ails you. Rent a cozy cabin or a luxury mountain home, or stay in a bed & breakfast inn or hotel -- and simply relax. link to website
First, the estate sale.  It was pretty bad.  The house was not just old but falling apart and kind of creepy. It was right on the highway, not even in a quaint setting.
Some interesting items but nothing worth buying!
Fortunately, the town of Blue Ridge was just a few miles from this estate sale location, so it was a perfect spot for quick exploration and lunch.  We did love the town and it was quite busy with locals and tourists.  The main street was actually bustling!  We had lunch at "Harvest on Main" - right on their sunny front porch.  We also wandered briefly through some of the shops and up and down Main Street.  Here are some photo highlights.  We discussed coming back with our spouses and making a day-trip out of it - a lovely setting!




Loved this elk overlooking the railroad area behind Main Street!

It was a lovely trip even though the estate sale was definitely a bust!
