If you love shopping and searching for hidden treasures, this journey is for you! The US 12 Heritage Trail Garage Sale is aptly called, “Michigan’s Longest Garage Sale!” Every year individuals clean out their attics and stake out their front yards along the US-12 corridor stretching over 180 miles from New Buffalo to Detroit. You will find everything from antiques, collectibles, furniture, dishware, fresh garden produce, homemade jams and jellies, live entertainment and much more.

To register your sale on this site for free click here. When you register your sale it will be placed on an online interactive map and the page listing all the sales, which can be viewed or printed one week prior to the sale.
Items of all shapes and sizes are sold along the route. We strive to make this a sale of ANTIQUES and ODDITITIES, and we discourage vendors from selling used clothing because it is most often passed over.
Vendors can make their own hours – bargain hunters hit the sales early and many locals will enjoy shopping after work.
