    Antiques & Garage Sales – Missouri Border to Colorado – 28 Towns! 13 Counties in Kansas! Join the Adventure!

    Third weekend every September!  September 20th - 21st - 22nd, 2019

    US Highway 36 Treasure Hunt and yard sales are on Friday, Saturday and Sunday September 20th, 21st, and 22nd 2019.  Participants that want to have an ad placed on the maps that will be listed on the Hwy 36 Website have until August 26th to return their completed forms to the Chamber office.   Hundreds of people a day visit the Highway 36 Association web page to map out their stops for the 400-mile Treasure Hunt. The event takes place the third weekend in September every year and includes 13 counties.
    Registration forms are available at the Chamber of Commerce/Tourism office at 205 South State Street. For a $5.00 fee, each location, and a listing of your items for sale, will be put on printed maps and US Highway 36 web site.  Treasure Hunt yard signs are available for a refundable deposit of $10.
    Planning multi-family sales or clustering with neighbors will bring more buyers into the area. Organizations can have a food booth or bake sales. Another option for grouping is Bullseye Event Center.  Tim Sprigg has spaces available for $20.00 each and they may be reserved by calling 785-874-4800.
    Vendors often ask what spenders are looking for.  These buyers come from all over the United States and are interested in antiques, farm items, primitive pine furniture, rustic-rural pieces, and Depression Era articles.  Area shoppers look for sporting goods, camping gear, kids’ clothes (but not adult clothing), holiday decorations, books and household items. 
    The deadline to be listed on the web site is Monday August 26th, 2019.  Stop in the Chamber/Travel and Tourism office to register and get on the map.
    28 Towns along U.S. Hwy 36 will be participating, which includes 10 counties. Norton County has always been a popular destination and our participation has averaged about 78 yard sales and events!
