Rentschler Farm Museum a Major Stop on US-12 Garage Sale


The Rentschler Farm Museum is a major top on the US-12 Garage Sale - dubbed Michigan's longest garage sale.

The museum's yard sale, held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday, is organized by the Saline Area Historical Society, which manages the museum for the City of Saline.

The museum is located at 1265 E. Michigan Ave.  The Saline Area Historical Society will sell goods from its salvage barn and its gift shop. There are 15 other vendors selling goods from the Rentschler Farm.

Not only is the museum a magnet for vendors, it's a magnet for shoppers.

"Last year there were nearly 2,000 attendees over the two days," said Dean Girbach, President of the Saline Area Historical Society.

Vendors will sell antiques, vintage pieces, furniture, home decor and more.
