The Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County is working to
surpass the excellence of last year's event. This year, the Logan
County Route 66 Garage Sale is scheduled for June 13 and 14, with
vendors located in Atlanta, Elkhart, Broadwell and at multiple sites
Many vendors have already signed up for spaces, but
the foundation would like to extend the opportunity to as many as
possible. Vendor spaces at sanctioned locations can be used to set
up your own garage sale or to set up a booth for your business. The
cost is $30 for a standard space and $95 for a food vendor space.
In order to make this year's event bigger and better than last
year's, the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County has ensured
that each sanctioned location for vendors will have restrooms, water
and trash pickup available.
This year's garage sale pamphlet is also being expanded and
presents an excellent opportunity for any and all advertisers to get
the word out about their business. The deadline for ad placements is
April 15. Vendors have an added benefit of a free listing in the
garage sale pamphlet, which will note their location and wares. In
order to gain this free listing, vendor applications need to be
returned by April 15. Garage sales along Route 66 may also be listed
on the map for a small fee.
The foundation is also looking for volunteers to help with the
garage sale this year. These volunteers will be asked to help set up
as well as help the foundation communicate with the vendors. Since
foundation members can't be everywhere at once, the volunteers are
needed to assist by being at each location to let foundation members
know if they need to swing by.
If you're interested in being a vendor at the Logan County Route
66 Garage Sale or volunteering to help, please call 217-732-8687.
