Treasures galore on Route 34

Shoppers young and old, from far and near, can fill their shopping bags this weekend during the eighth annual More on 34 garage sale. Hundreds of vendors will sell their treasures, crafts, antiques, household furnishings, collectibles and other items during the two-day event which begins Friday morning and continues through Saturday.

The 140-mile garage sale stretches from Galesburg to Kewanee through Neponset, Sheffield, Wyanet, Princeton, Dover and LaMoille in Bureau County, and continues through Mendota, Earlville and other Route 34 communities all the way to Aurora. Shoppers are sure to find numerous bargains and unique gifts this week during More on 34. Fortunately for shoppers and vendors alike, weekend temperatures are expected to be summer-perfect, in the upper 70s.
