A long-time supporter of the Junk Jaunt continues to reap benefits from the popular event.
If customers veered a few miles off the beaten path to location 26 in rural Buffalo County, they could find everything from an electric truck to a bin full of horse tack.
Joyce Sears has been part of the Junk Jaunt since it started 12 years ago. She says travelers from as far as Alaska came on Saturday.
Sears says this event may be a glorified garage sale, but she says it promotes tourism and also helps support local communities.
“We like to keep it going because we know it supports a lot of the churches and non-profits in the area,” said Sears. “It’s for a lot of their way to survive the year, what they sell on Junk Jaunt, so it’s really good for all the area.”
Junk Jaunt wrapped up on Sunday after drawing people to communities all over central Nebraska.
