August 12, 2016 - Multi Day Event - ends August 14, 2016
All Along US 12
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. Perhaps even more interesting than the "treasures" are the people you will meet along the way. 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. As you drive the country roads on your quest, you will be privy to incredible stories related to the individuals and the items they sell and see a plethora of items that only your grandmother could love. Most importantly most come to see the unusual and socialize. It is Americana at its best.
