The 15th Annual U.S. 36 Highway Border-to-Border Treasure Hunt is coming soon! Hundreds of people visit the Highway 36 Association web page each day 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 from the Missouri border to Colorado, with 28 towns along the way joining in on the adventure.
Wondering what buyers are looking for? These buyers come from all over the United States and are interested in farm items, primitive pine furniture, rustic/rural pieces, anything vintage and Depression Era articles. Area shoppers look for sporting goods, camping gear, kids' clothes (but not necessarily adult clothing), tools, holiday decorations, books and household items. Of course, antiques are always of prime interest.
If you are interested in participating in the Highway 36 Treasure Hunt 'FLIP CHALLENGE' contact Lari Ann Nickell at 785-871-7010. This concept has the potential to raise money for local projects and culminates in a FUN auction.
During the sale weekend the Chamber will have an information booth on Hwy 36 at the Water Tower Park to promote Norton and the Treasure Hunt. If you would like extra maps/listings to hand out at your location, let the Chamber office know.
Registration is CLOSED (Sept. 1) to be listed on the local map, however, we can still list you on the GOOGLE Map if you want to sign up!
A copy of the Norton County listings is available here, as well as the map.
