GREENFIELD — For decades, the stretch of U.S. 40 running through Indiana has been known as “Antique Alley” for the many antiques stores that dot the route from Richmond to Indianapolis.
More recently though, U.S. 40 has been making a name for itself with shopping of a different kind – yard sales.
For the past nine years, the 850-mile stretch of U.S. 40 from Baltimore to St. Louis has played host to the National Road Yard Sale. For several days each summer, the historic route attracts bargain hunters from across the country, many of whom travel large portions of the route looking for bargains and hidden treasures.
For the third year in a row, Greenfield Main Street Inc. wants to make sure yard sale enthusiasts have a reason to stop in Greenfield.
