The main issue for me would be documentation.

The trip from home to the first yard sale would be commuting.  If she 
leaves from her store that that would be business miles.  She needs to 
keep a mileage log.  I tell my clients to keep it simple.

Date  Starting odometer reading  Where traveled and why  Ending odometer reading

The last trip from a yard sale to home would also be commuting.  If it 
is to the store then it would be deductible.
