Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald
TAMA NEWS-HERALD - With over 450 yard sale locations last year in Iowa alone, you will want to mark your calendars -- even apply for vacation -- for Aug. 4, 5 and 6 according to Deb Rothmeyer.

That's the weekend for the seventh Annual BUY-WAY Yard Sale along the Lincoln Highway in Iowa and other states. Rothmeyer is the coordinator for the event in Iowa.

This is Iowa’s second year.

The dates are now established to be the "first Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in August"

"We struggled with establishing this formula for our dates, due to all the early August activities, but are convinced this will please the most shoppers and communities, " she said.

To make the event more successful, people or groups interested in participating on an individual basis or as group effort for fundraising should contact Rothmeyer - email- - as soon as possible. 

This way information can be distributed as planning continues, and listings of sales can be made available for shoppers to plan their stops."

A Travelers Guide will be distributed to businesses along the corridor for pick-up by shoppers in late July.

"This event has not only introduced hundreds of thousands to the history of America's first coast-to-coast paved road, but it provides an economic boost to the hundreds of communities that participate, and it serves the "thrifty" side of us all who shop,” Rothmeyer said.
