Summer is officially history, but Amish auctions plow on into October.
Below you’ll find listings for quilt and craft sales, consignment auctions, a Haiti sale, a downsizing auction, and a fire company mud sale, perhaps the last of the year.
States include Illinois, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Delaware, Iowa, Ohio, Kentucky, Missouri, and Tennessee.
We’ve also got some non-auction events listed – fire company breakfasts, a book signing, and the “Charm Days” festival.
As always, a special thanks goes to our auction list compiler for her hard work.
