Join us in the hunt for antiques, boutiques and more!

All you have to do is hop in the car (or better yet, a truck with a trailer), and take a drive along Highway 50. This highway goes from coast to coast and passes right through Lawrence County. Vendors and households set up along the sides of the road, selling things like clothes, home decor, plants and antiques. Some stores participate, as well, offering special sales and discounts!

You never know what unique items you may find during this 3 day event. It is a sight to see!
