“I will have my tents pitched and filled with lots of UNIQUE items my husband collected, filling the barn with lots of things that caught his eye. Many unusual canes and walking sticks; old coin banks in cast iron, tin, glass, ceramic, etc., in all sizes – lots of pocket banks; fancy old umbrellas; rare dinnerware; a collection of smoking pipes in a wood pipe rack; unusual decks of playing cards; old kitchen collectibles; old books; unique ceramic pieces; old glass bottles; vases; tin boxes; duck decoys; caps and t-shirts; a few tools and more. Stop and see what I’m discovering among his diverse collection of STUFF. There’s even an old church pulpit looking for a new home.”

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.
