The annual BUY-WAY Yard Sale Guide and Map is being built again for the 10th year, and if you are a small business or individual who wants to attract the over 100,000 shoppers to your door, this is a “must-be-in" place to advertise.
We print 30,000 guides and distribute these across the Ohio Lincoln Highway corridor the week prior to the sale (THIS YEAR AUG 11, 12 & 13).
Out-of-staters especially grab these to follow the path of the sales, and if you are listed, they will drive to your door! There are Mom n’ Pop restaurant listings on back as well.
The special OHIO Lincoln Highway license plates are approved but awaiting manufacture set-up before your local BMV will be allowed to order your plates.
While frustrating to be waiting this long, due to unforeseen circumstances with the state’s supplier, WE PROMISE to provide the instructions right here for you to actually purchase your plates. (You will be able to do this online as well.) You will be able to order a random plate, or get a vanity plate of your choice for your passenger vehicle provided it is no more than 6 letters and or numbers, and is not already being used.
If your current plates are about to expire, keep in mind you can get your plates renewed, and then when the special plates become available, you will be able to simply do an exchange and pay the special organization fee ($30) plus a $11.75 new plate/exchange fee.
Meanwhile, be thinking about what you will put on the plate…and show proudly your support of Ohio’s Lincoln Highway Historic Byway as you drive down America’s first coast-to-coast highway!
The BAD news is that you are just hoarding junk that you will never use again. The GOOD news is that by giving it to us, WE not only recycle it, but actually get money for that stuff! And that includes power cords, chargers, etc. So help the Lincoln Highway and grab those old cell phones and accessories and drop them off to your local convention bureau. (If there isn't one close to you on the list, email me at info[at]historicbyway.com and I will arrange a pickup! If you are really feeling energetic, you can send it to OLHHC, 127 Harding Way East, Galion, OH 44833.
So where can you drop these off right now? W to E in Ohio: Van Wert CVB (Convention and Visitors Bureau), Delphos Chamber, Cairo Library branch, Lima/Allen County CVB, Ada Public library, Forest/Jackson Public Library, Wyandot/Upper Sandusky Visitors Bureau, Bucyrus Chamber office, Galion Chamber office, Crestline ADVOCATE, Mansfield/Richland CVB, Wayne/Wooster CVB, and there will be more pickup places designated soon.
Thanks in advance for your help and support!
The mission of the Ohio Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor is to preserve, interpret and promote the Lincoln Highway. Our effort will strengthen education, increase tourism and encourage economic development along America's first coast-to-coast paved highway.In 1999, Ohio Lincoln Highway Association Director Bob Lichty of Canton joined with Main Street Galion, Ohio Director Mike Hocker and several convention and visitor bureau leaders to go one step further by promoting organized tourism, with the belief that as a commercial destination, travelers, shoppers and tourists could be better educated to this piece of American history.
A coming together of the Ohio Lincoln Highway League with this new "heritage Corridor" group became a good fit for both. This new organization, along with the official Ohio Department of Transportation's granting of an official byway status in February of 2004 became a great advantage for businesses along the Ohio Lincoln Highway Corridor.
Traditionally, businesses spent money and received benefits only on a 1 to 1 ratio, but because this organization is driven under the professional direction of convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs) across the state, members' ad dollars are maximized, and the message is much clearer and farther reaching.
Individuals interested in saving this great piece of American history should visit the website of the Ohio Lincoln Highway League. Businesses, chambers and CVBs, attractions and retailers interested in being a part of our mission should visit our information page.
