Annual U.S. 12 garage sale spreads across state for 212 miles
To the Editor,
This is a reminder to the business and property owners along U.S. Hwy. 12. It’s time again to start planning for the 7th Annual “Heritage Trail’s Longest Garage Sale,” Friday through Sunday, Aug. 7-8-9 (Sponsored by the State of Michigan and is always the second weekend in August). It is advertised to run from Detroit to New Buffalo (212 miles). But so far, Detroit, Ypsilanti and Saline have not participated.
This is an excellent opportunity for business owners and residents to celebrate U.S. 12 becoming a Heritage Trail and to participate by having a yard sale on their own property or rent a space, where provided, to sell your items, promote a product, business or service.
This event brings a huge amount of people from neighboring states and throughout Michigan into our area that weekend.
Our business has participated in this event for the past six years in the Irish Hills and welcomes anyone who would like to join us or just needs more information.
