(UNDATED) - If you love shopping and searching for hidden treasures, then this weekend is for you.

The U.S. 12 Heritage Trail Garage Sale, aptly called, "Michigan's Longest Garage Sale” is underway. Every year individuals clean out their attics and stake out their front yards along the U.S. 12 corridor stretching over 200 miles from New Buffalo to Detroit.

You will find everything from antiques, collectibles, furniture, dishware, fresh garden produce, homemade jams and jellies, live entertainment and much more. Perhaps even more interesting than the "treasures" are the people you will meet along the way. The sales can be found along the highway at homes, farms, businesses, parking lots and fields. Some areas will have large numbers of vendors while others may be scattered.

Most importantly, many come to see the unusual and socialize. It is Americana at its best.

Please remember to drive safely and to slow down while traveling U.S. 12 and pay special attention when parking and crossing the highway during the sale.
