The huge U.S. 12 yard sale is this weekend all across southern Michigan. There are a lot of neat places to stop along the way any time of the year. The following is an informal list of some of my favorite U.S. 12 stops as well as some I have not yet visited. We will start at the western end of U.S. 12 in Michigan and work our way east.
New Buffalo Redamak's - "The hamburger that made New Buffalo, MI famous." I have not yet stopped in and tasted this famous burger, but it is on my list. I love their website. They have some great oldies music playing while you are looking around the site. Note: Redamak's only accepts cash, no cards or checks.
The Bean Counter - Great little coffee shop right on U.S. 12. As a recovering accountant I can appreciate the name (come on you know people always refer to accountants as bean counters).
Three Oaks Historic Drier's Meat Market - In business since just after the Civil War ended, Drier's Meat Market is a National Historic Site. They still throw sawdust on the floor and their ring bologna is as famous as it is tasty.
Featherbone Factory - Once home to a thriving women's garment factory, the Featherbone Factory is now home to Kinner Enterprises. They sell rustic home furnishings and hundreds of garden stepping stones and statues.
Okay, that is it for part one. I am posting the second half of this U.S. 12 adventure separately. I just kept coming up with more places to stop and the post was getting longer than I wanted it to be.
