If you love to shop and love searching for hidden treasures and finding great bargains, this is sale and trip for you! You will find everything from antiques, collectables, furniture, dishware, fresh garden produce, homemade jams and jellies, live entertainment, and much more. Perhaps even more interesting than the "junk" are the people you will meet along the drive.
The sales can be found along the highway at homes, farms, businesses, parking lots, and fields. Some areas will have large numbers of vendors while others may be scattered and in some instances a traveler will have to go several miles or more without seeing a yard sale because of the rural nature of the highway.
The Garage Sale Map will be online a few days prior to the sale to highlight the homes that have mapped their sales.
Stories From Shoppers and Sellers...
A Steal For $5.00! What beautiful weather for the sales this past weekend! My husband and I took our friend from Chicago along with us this year. She was amazed at how many sales there were! (We started in Buchanan and made it to Union.) She found this treasure in Edwardsburg - and it was a steal for only $5! Had a great time and looking forward to the 2012 sales!
You Never Know What You Will Find!
I just had to e-mail to tell you that a man I work with and his wife attended the US-12 yard sale last weekend, and they had a great time. The funny part of the story is that the man bought a coffin in Union for $35! Yes, a coffin. So, I have 4 questions:
1. Who buys a coffin at a yard sale?
2. What kind of person is selling a coffin at a yard sale??
3. Whose coffin was it???
4. Who is the coffin for????
