US-12 Yard Sale

Imagine it: 180 miles of LPs, kids clothes, and missing-piece puzzles.

That’s the US-12 Yard Sale – a giant bargain bin stretching across southern Michigan.

We typically check out the local section, stretching from Clinton and Saline in the East to Allen (Antique Capital!) in the West. The tough part isn’t the driving – it’s the figuring out which yard/garage sale is worth stopping at.

This past year, I had no complaints: I picked up a Canonet in fantastic condition for $5 in Jonesville. Everything beyond that was gravy.
