Hard to believe we’re already inching up to November. This being the first year we’ve been tracking Amish auctions, I thought their numbers would start to dwindle by now. It looks like that they might be the case.
Still, this month our dedicated compiler was able to find a decent number of events, but few so far for December.
As they are typically open-air affairs, auctions are more suited to warmer months, so that’s not surprising.
This month’s list includes events in Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and even Texas.
There are a couple of non-auction events thrown in as well. As always your additions are welcome.

On last year’s edition, Amish America commenter Jessie OBrien wrote:
“I attended and consigned antiques to the Borntrager Annual Auction held Nov 2013 at their farm. The auction was well attended and lasted all day. Animals, furniture, quilts, buggies, farm equipment and much more was sold. Two auction rings were going at the same time, and a separate building was set up for the selling of food and drinks. It was a really fun day, and I am looking forward to the next auction.”
