Lincoln Highway Buy-Way / Save the dates: August 10, 11, & 12, 2017

Looking for a fundraising opportunity?  Since your residence, church or business is along the historic Lincoln Highway, join hundreds of others from West Virginia to Iowa who will be holding Lincoln Highway BUY-WAY Yard Sales on these dates.  All sale receipts remain with the individual/group that holds the sale (unless you choose to make a tax-deductible donation to the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association), and you can choose the days/hours you wish.

  • Do you have some clutter that others will no doubt cherish?   Set up your own table along the route!
  • Is your church, school, or organization looking for a unique fund-raising opportunity?  Take advantage of the marketing, publicity, and customers that will be available.
  • Time to move some merchandise from your business or celebrate a “Sale”?  Acknowledge Abraham Lincoln and his Highway with a super sale on those dates—possible a “Sidewalk Sale!”
  • Like to drive and learn about our heritage, plus see some yard sales going on along the route?  Get out and drive along the Lincoln Highway in Indiana for a day or two.  Stop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of the many great restaurants on the route and visit historic sites while you shop.
