August 7-8 are the dates for the Annual Highway 141 Garage Sales. This is a two-day event that follows Highway 141 for 177 miles from Grimes to Sloan. That is miles of great garage sales, countless bargains, and hidden treasures just waiting to be found.
This year marks the 18th anniversary of the Highway 141 Sale, which seems to get bigger and better every year.
Organizers of the Highway 141 Garage Sales had this statement on their website, “We are asking everyone to practice social distancing where possible and wear a mask if you feel the need.”
If you are thinking of possibly having a garage or doing a fundraiser for a local group, this is a great opportunity to do so. Most sales start at 8 a.m. and end at their own discretion. The sales will be held rain or shine.
