    The Haiti Auction was just held at Penn Yan, NY. I was wondering if there are going to be any other auctions in New York State?

      Marilyn I am sure there will be, but haven’t seen any for this month yet for NY. Will keep an eye out.

        Today, July 12, 2014, I attened the Amish School Auction in Perry County, Pa. I think it was the 37th annual event. I took some pics which I will send to Eric. It was a good time. The Perry County Amish are a bit different. They enjoy inter-acting with the English. The English was the over-whelming attendees at this auction. Hopefully Eric will post some of the pics.

          Jerry, I did get those pics, thank you. I will plan to share–I really liked the shot you took of the price list breaking down the cost of buggy features.

    The Amish Crippled Children’s Auction is also on July 5th. It’s in that Auction Grounds right next to Lehman’s in Kidron, Oh.

    It’s going to be BUSY in the Holmes Co. Area this weekend!

    Please share!

    As usual, I hope attendees of any of these events will share photos and experiences. I’m especially hoping someone attends/posts about the consignment auction in Wautoma, WI. I’m currently reading some Amish fiction which takes place in Wautoma, and it would be interesting to see/hear some non-fiction surrounding the town.

    If I recall, Horse Progress Days also yielded some interesting photos/posts in years past!

    Thanks, Erik! Maybe, someday, I’ll attend one of these events. There are so many interesting sounding ones!

      Comment on July 7 Monday Lancaster County PA Benefit Auction (June 30th, 2014 at 15:15)

      July 7 Monday Lancaster County PA Benefit Auction

      When I was in Lancaster County on Sat Jun 28, I saw two signs for an auction on Monday, July 7, to benefit the Clinic for Special Children. Can someone in Lancaster County confirm that this is for the Clinic founded by Dr. Holmes Morton, and that the location will be the Leola Produce Shed? [The Clinic’s Benefit Auction is usually the third Saturday in September, so this may be an additional one, in the midst of tourist season.]

    I’m glad the auction compiler continues to submit the monthly listings of auctions and hope it continues. It is much appreciated.

    This is a good resource, thanks to Erik and the contributor for putting this all together.

    As I read this on Tuesday, July 01, 2014, it is Canada Day and Friday will be The Fourth, so well wishes all around, even if, as we know, the Amish and plain people are muted on the whole scene. But anyway, when events such as these auctions (or if they correspond with national observances) it’s a lovely thing.

      Milverton Amish auction

      Shom, happy belated Canada Day, and just to let you know our compiler sent in some additions which I’ve updated the post above with, including a very large auction in the Milverton, Ontario settlement on July 19, which apparently gets around 10,000 attendees.

    The 17th annual Amish Quilt and Craft Show presented by Jacksonport Craft Cottage takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 10 through 13 in Jacksonport, Wisconsin. However, I am not familiar with Amish living in that vicinity.



    In Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, an upcoming quilt auction will be held on July 15, 2014, at Hometowne Quilt Auction in New Holland, PA. They have an auction six times a year.

    Good quilt auction during Yoder Days Events in Yoder, Kansas. Will be August 23 this year. I bought an unusual one last year, “Sunflowers and Spider Webs” in a light green top, white back for $700.00. Year before, bought a favorite, one of my cousins made called a “Bordello Heart” its a queen size, paid $550.00. Also few years back bought a log cabin design in navy and white king size from another cousin, paid $750.00. Great quilts, incredible handiwork. I think very good prices.

      Comment on Bordello or Bargello? (July 16th, 2014 at 19:42)

      Bordello or Bargello?

      For a moment I thought you meant the Bargello design and I almost asked if your cousin had to acquire a license or special permission to make that 🙂 (if you don’t know what I am alluding to see this post on a quilt copyright controversy that erupted in Lancaster County back in Feb: http://amishamerica.com/almost-amish-to-enforce-quilt-copyright/ )

      That said, Bordello Heart IS an interesting name for a quilt!

      But on second thought, just did a google search…are you sure it’s not in fact this? https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=bargello+heart+quilt

    Ha sorry Bargello. Didn’t know there was such controversy. My cousin Alice probably doesn’t know either…so I’m sure it would not matter. Anyway, looked it up on the internet for photos and I like my color combo the best! little red, little pink, three shades of blue….all in and faded around the heart. Cousin Alice has a great eye for color.
