They say one man's trash is another man's treasure. That's especially true as Nebraska celebrated its 10th annual Junk Jaunt.
Bargain hunters from across the country made there way to the Cornhusker State for the state-wide yard sale.
The near 500 mile Junk Jaunt saw population booms in towns across Nebraska.
"Friday, obviously, we had a big crowd, about 1,300 people. Today we've already gotten to about to 1,100 people," said Ravenna resident Tim Lewandowski mid-way through Saturday.
Ravenna's total population is just over 1,300.
Those who participated in the Jaunt said the weekend was as busy, if not busier, than the past.
Raymond Robertson who has participated in every Jaunt in Cairo said, "Been real good, we sold a lot of our stuff, it's been real good. Everybody's bragging about it."
"We're about average from where we were last year, but I would say the crowd is a little bit more into sticking around a little bit longer. We've had people that actually rented out our Bed and Breakfast, our hotels, stayed in local towns that had other hotels and come back for day two," added Lewandowski.
The weekend was extremely popular and had antique seekers out and about all day.
"It'd be raining out here, 6:00 in the morning and still dark and they're standing out there waiting to look on this old trailer," said Robertson.
With small towns hosting the Jaunt, the weekend created a great opportunity for an economy boom for towns that rarely get visitors.
"A lot of times it's tough to get people to come into town. With the Junk Jaunt we get people to stop into town maybe for the first time. Several people have commented on coming back, they'd come back just on non-Junk Jaunt weekends so it's a great time to advertise ourselves a little bit as a smaller community," said Lewandowski.
Some of the tourists even travel from around the country to be a part of this weekend.
Said Lewandowski, "The Junk Jaunt is a great time to see people from Nevada or Washington. We've had some ladies in here from Oklahoma, they're always willing to sit down and visit and still throw a little of their hard earned cash our way."
