Lincoln Highway BUY-WAY Sale Starts Tomorrow

10 Aug , 2022  

By 1812Blockhouse

It’s that time of the year when many yards in this part of Ohio sprout tables, chairs, and acres and acres of items to sell.

It’s the Lincoln Highway BUY-WAY, an event which has taken its place among Ohio’s favorite summer traditions. For over twenty years, the venerable Lincoln Highway is the place to go for bargains, food, and fun.

This year’s BUY-WAY takes place from 8 AM to 5 PM on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

According to promotional material, “The idea of the BUY-WAY Yard Sale is to bring people to rediscover the lesser traveled path of the original Lincoln Highway, once a bustling road that began connecting America by automobiles, and changed the way we travel today. This event encourages small businesses to gain revenues through increased tourism. This activity helps the local economy.”
