Our friends in the Buckeye state boast many great antique venues, and at the top of the list is the Springfield Antique Show. The setup at the Springfield Fairgrounds is open to the public the third week of each month year-round with approximately 200 to 300 dealers, but from May to October that number swells to more than 2,500 booths. Advertising signs, Midwestern pottery, vintage fashion, coins and stamps, primitives and painted furniture are just a few of the finds. Check out their website at www.springfieldantiqueshow.com.
Not for the faint or heart, but an amazing adventure for those who dare to tackle it, The World’s Longest Yard Sale covers 690 miles of some of the most scenic countryside in the US. From it’s start five miles north of Addison, Mich. to its last vendor on the outskirts of Gadsden, Ala., this event, also known as the 127 Sale, is one incredible treasure hunt.
This year’s sale runs from Thursday, August 1 through Sunday, August 4. Go to www.127sale.com for information on both the sale and the many special events held along Highway 127 during it’s four-day run.
Antiques and a day out with the family in the beautiful heartland of America - it just doesn’t get any better than that!
