If you’d like to go to an Amish auction in June, we’ve got a list started for you. Below, you’ll find over a dozen Amish sale events in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Montana, Ohio, and New York (Update: and Indiana).
Among the events listed are a book auction, medical relief sales, school benefits, a Haiti sale, and two Clinic for Special Children auctions.
Last month’s auction list expanded quite a bit thanks to the fantastic response from you readers. So if you know of something that should be on here, please tell us in the comments.
And special thanks to our anonymous list creator, who has followed up last month’s effort with this one (and already has July in the works!).

June 3, 5:00 pm, Tuesday
Benefit Auction for Kilgore Amish School, 7177 Germano Road SE,
Carrollton, Ohio. With a Chinese Auction; what is that?
Thanks for these Linda, added them to the list. As for Chinese auction, this is what I got from Wikipedia:
A Chinese auction is a combination of a raffle and an auction that is typically featured at charity, church festival and numerous other events. Can also be known as penny social, tricky tray or pick-a-prize according to local custom, or to avoid causing offence.
The difference between a raffle and a Chinese auction is that in a raffle with multiple prizes, there is one “hat” from which names are drawn, but in a Chinese auction each prize has its own “hat”. This allows ticket buyers to choose which prize to focus on, as opposed to having a first, second, third, etc. prize.
Sat Jun 14 – 08:30AM
Annual Somerset Co. Amish Church Fund, Rt. 669 Springs Road, Salisbury, Pa
I hope that Amish America readers share photos & info about their visits to any and all the above-mentioned auctions. Photos of quilts and Amish-made wood items (etc.) or unusual auctioned items would be a treat for people (like myself) who must visit these events “virtually”.
I hope you all have an enjoyable time, and I look forward to your stories & photos!

THANK you BIG TIME!
Thank you SO much, Linda! I just viewed ALL of the photos and video you sent RE: 2014 New York Haiti Benefit Auction, and I enjoyed it all! I’d love one of those “marble” pumps, and one quilt I saw was just mesmerizing! Some of the chairs looked like just what I’ve been looking for, and those tractor lamps were fun. Donuts, soft pretzels…I could almost taste them and smell them cooking. You made my day! I really appreciate it! 🙂 🙂 🙂

One unique feature they have is a European Auction, which was held at 9:30 a.m. in previous years. Here are two descriptions:
-“A special European auction is planned for 9:30 a.m. “(A European auction is) an auction where the bidding starts high and the amount comes down until a person bids. The bidding person then wins the bid,” explained Dean Stoesz, executive director and CEO of Lighthouse.”
-“The European auction, which will begin at 9:30 a.m., draws great interest because the bidding will start with the item priced high. The auctioneer will slowly lower the price, and the first bidder will win the item. “People think … can I wait longer? Will it be cheaper?,” said King. “(They) just love it!”
An article from 2011 described the auction:
