More on 34 140-mile garage sale starts this morning


NT Staff




MENDOTA — The annual cavalcade of commerce along U.S. 34 through northern Illinois started this morning and continues Saturday. “More on 34” features mile after mile of yard sales, antique shows, craft shows, flea markets and farmers markets in communities from Galesburg to Aurora.

“More on 34” has grown in popularity since its origination eight years ago. Bargain hunters, antique buyers and collectors from across the United States turn the weekend event into a 140-mile treasure hunt.

“This is such a great event, a good way to find bargains, meet new people, and experience the Illinois countryside,” said Cathy Foes, director of the Henry County Tourism Bureau in Kewanee.

Participating communities along the way are Galesburg, Wataga,Oneida, Altona, Galva, Kewanee, Neponset, Sheffield, Wyanet, Princeton, Dover, LaMoille, Mendota, Earlville, Leland, Somonauk, Sandwich, Plano, Yorkville andAurora. Sales typically run 8 a.m.-5 p.m. but some open earlier or stay open later. A few sellers even begin their sales on Thursday and continue through Sunday.

At Princeton
Bureau County Fairgrounds will have a two-day sale, with doors opening at 7 a.m. today and Saturday. The Buddy Bags program also reserved spaces for sellers for only $10 at the First Christian Church on Main Street in Princeton.

Success stories
Several years ago, “More on 34” founder Glenn Schwarm met two women who had rented a truck and set out to furnish an entire household. By Saturday morning when he met them in Wyanet, the women had already bought a dining room set and living room furniture. They were on their way to Galesburg to discover and buy more finds.
