For Indiana: non-profits and families organizing yard sales, festivals, concerts, and car shows during the August Historic Lincoln Highway Yard Sale Days to be held across Indiana will be able to list their sales and events free of charge on the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association’s website.
“We had great success with the event last year across Indiana,” says Ken Locke of Warsaw and the newly elected Indiana Lincoln Highway Director. “The event brought hundreds of people to downtown Warsaw and increased sales for local merchants, restaurant owners, gas stations and hotels. Some yard sales reported hundreds of customers here and in Ohio along the corridor.”
This year shoppers will again be able to go to a website and print out a listing of participating sites to take with them as they go sailing to find those bargains of a lifetime!
