Rummagers Find Treasure Along Highway 21

Posted: Updated:

It's almost like a holiday for rummagers--shopping at sales along a 100-mile stretch of road in central and western North Dakota.

The annual sales runs from St. Anthony to New England.

Stephanie Scheurer takes us along Highway 21 in Grant County.

(nat) "Thanks for stopping you guys. Happy rummaging."

Lyndell Kovar has taken part in the Highway 21 rummage sale for the past six years.

"More people have showed up here this year than ever before," says Lyndell Kovar.

And for her, it's not just the sales she enjoys.

"I think it's interacting with other people that come around and it's the thrill of the hunt," says Lyndell.

This treasure hunt is the state's largest rummage sale event with over 100 rummage sale pit stops along a 100 mile route.

"I think I've spent more than I've actually made. I went to the neighbors and I spent more of my profits so I've been taking money out of our box to buy some things for our house, so I'm taking more in than probably selling," says Jill Eckroth.

Standup: "It's out with the old and in with the new at these rummage sales. And for some, it's an opportunity to get rid of some of their more unique items."

"She had a big set of aliens and a big set of skeletons so there's a lot of people that are laughing at our Halloween attire here today," Jill Eckroth.

"They had aliens and we had dinosaurs," says Lyndell.

"A lawn gnome with like creepy eyes and it sold like the first day," says Cadee Heinle.

(nat) "We've seen some odd things."

But as the saying goes, one person's trash is another person's treasure.

(nat) "Garden rocks and Life magazines and all the junk out of the old shops."

And you never know what treasures you'll find along this road of rummage.

"If you like rummage sales, this is the thing to do," says Lyndell.

This year, the Highway 21 Treasure Hunt honors the memory of its founder, Sam Dart, who passed away in March.

Sam started the highway 21 treasure hunt 12 years ago.
