Towns announce dates of 40-mile garage sale

DURAND—“Saleing Rt. 75,” the second annual 40-mile garage sale along Route 75 in Illinois, will be Friday through Sunday, June 4-6.

With the crowds last year’s sale drew, representatives of the eight towns participating expect this year’s event to feature more garage sales, along with more activities in the towns than last year. Towns participating include South Beloit, Rockton, Harrison, Shirland, Durand, Davis, Rock City and Dakota.

The purpose of the event is to introduce visitors to the towns, scenery, businesses and other features of the area. The backbone of the event is individual homeowners who set up garage sales, flea market tables and other enticements in the towns and along the highway. Vendors or others wishing more information can call Philip Meyers at (815) 248-3166.
