As usual, I hope to see some photos of a few of these events. (That Peacock quilt pictured here seemed like a BARGAIN to me!)
(“Volunteer,” thanks AGAIN!)
My thought exactly on the quilt Alice Mary. I think you’re apt to find lower prices in these more off the beaten path places.
Bareville Auction photos
Bareville Fire Company of Pennsylvania has some pictures of items from their Aug. 23 auction, at
There are about 5 sets of photos to click on as news postings, but if you have interest in quilts, here is one of those links:
Thanks for the links to the auction pix, Linda, especially the photos of the quilts. There are some unique looking patterns there at Bareville, like Ocean Wave and Bargello Beauty. 🙂
Thank you Erik, for having New York State in this time. I really appreciate it.
I was wondering if there are any auctions later in the year like October or late November.
lots of auctions in october
At least in PA, you will find auctions every weekend in October. They are the fall mud sales without as much mud!
I had hoped ...
that one of this was going to be in Seymour, Mo AND that it was going to be this coming week … as we are going to be in that area then. Alas, it was not to be.
Oh well, doesn’t stop me from hoping that everyone enjoys these August auctions wherever they might be.
Seymour, Missouri Produce Auction
OldKat, you may be interested in the weekly produce auction in Seymour, Missouri, called the Highway 60 Produce Auction.
Do they have 2 produce auctions? “C-Highway Produce Auction facility near Seymour was built in 2008.”
An article from 2012 says they have a bake sale on the 2nd and 4th weekends of the month.
Thank you so much for the lead. That is very kind of you. The nicest people really do frequent Amish America!
Maybe it is because our moderator is so good! You can pay me later Erik (:>)
You’re welcome. Just be careful about waving to your friends; the auctioneer might think you are making a bid!
Thanks Oldkat, would you accept checks from me or is it cash-only? 🙂
And hat tip to Linda for both the info and good advice on preventing accidental bidding!
Can you believe it, it is August 2 already. Where has this summer gone?
Enjoy the auctions and be safe everyone.
[I had corn on the cob this evening, it was so nice]
Great list! Thanks!

From The Budget, Aug. 27, 2014, page 32:
“Aug. 21–We had a good turnout for the school auction on Sat. with people coming in from various communities and a lot of locals. David Miller from Holmes Co. was the head auctioneer with 6 rings selling. The top quilt was a broken twinkling star and brought $1,000. Quite a few from here want to go to the Romulus, N.Y. school auction this Sat.”
Amherst Quilt, Craft and Furniture Auction
“Those quilts will bring more money because of the excellent stitching,” Mader said. “We sold a Moon Glo pattern quilt in May 2013 for $2,650. This quilt was a new pattern and featured excellent quilting.”
“If your budget doesn’t stretch that far, don’t worry – Mader said visitors could go home with a quilt for as low as $175.”

“15th Annual Amish benefit auction a success,” is an article with 2 photos from Ohio.
“The 15th Annual Fredericktown Community benefit auction was held on August 9, 2014. The benefit auction was held at Owl Creek Produce and Auction Barn on County Rd 22, also known as Waterford Rd…. Each year one person from each of the 12 different church districts meet to help plan the next benefit function which is always held on the 2nd Saturday in August every year.”

“An oak table with 12 leaves brought ooh and ahs…”
Wadena School Auction, Mast Auction Tennessee
I question the address for the August 30 Fall Amish School/Consignment Auction in Minnesota. Is it at 22671 County Hwy 10, Fergus Falls, MN, or 60151 Co. Hwy. 50, Wadena, MN? (After a phone call to auctioneer Cary Aasness, I think the Fergus Falls address is incorrect. The auction is at a new location, but it is still in Wadena.)
Contact Auctioneers: 218-589-8598, Cary M. Aasness 218 205 1310 or Cody Aasness 218 205 1269
