It’s time to start planning for North Dakota’s largest rummage sale event, the annual Highway 21 Treasure Hunt, scheduled for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Friday and Saturday, June 21-22.
“Now is the time to start planning your sale by marking your items, finding a location and calling the community organizers to be listed,” shares Luann Dart, who coordinates the event.
Participating communities holding citywide rummage sales include Flasher, Carson, Heil, Elgin, New Leipzig, Mott, Regent and New England. Rural residents are welcome to host sales, too. The St. Anthony area will also be hosting sales.
Anyone holding a sale is encouraged to stay open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT both days. Those who plan to have their sale during different hours should state those hours on the listing.
“It’s discouraging for folks to drive to our communities and find that some sales have closed early, so we need to try to avoid that,” Dart says.
Those holding sales will not be charged. All advertising costs are paid for with donations from civic-minded organizations, including the Hettinger County Job Development Authority and West River Telecommunications Cooperative.
