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.

Thanks as always for this schedule. I don’t think I’ll be able to
attend any of these, but I’m printing off the schedule for reference in planning for next year. I’ve found that several of the Amish benefit auctions/consignment auctions are held the same time each year – such as was described in the listing for the Fall
Consignment Auction in Casey County, Ky.
While this comment isn’t auction related, I wanted to say a big thank you to all the information you provide. I came across your posts when searching to see if there were any Amish communities in NC. We visited the sole community in Union Grove recently. We bought items from the store, enjoyed ice cream from the dairy, and saw their school and church building. I hope to visit the states that are home to more communities, but this was indeed a highlight for me! I am a Tarheel grad and love our state, just wish we had more Amish. I have a true respect and admiration for them.
Thank you Kim, on behalf of our contributors as well.
I am in NC as well, am hoping to make Union Grove one of my first Amish visits this year. I was there about three years ago.
Don’t forget that a trip to Wisc is overdue! There are many miles to travel in our state browsing through Amish communities.In fact I’m thinking that it’s time once again for us to take a road trip. Those spontaneous no destination road trips are often a LOT of fun! Fall is an awesome time of the year here in Wisc to run the back roads. 😉
See you soon…I hope!
I had to giggle when I read the first entry.. Miller downsizing auction in Burton Oh.. There are as many Millers in Burton/Middlefield as there are Yoders.. Not that Im going out there.. but how on earth would you find them? I guess just ask around, huh. 🙂
Good point 🙂 I left off the address. Added it above, family is Henry and Sadie Miller.
Yoder auction Missouri
Kim’s giggle made me visualize the Millers shedding pounds and going down to a smaller size of clothes, or downsizing. Now the Yoders are downsizing!
Yoder Public Auction, Mt. Vernon, MO
October 4, 9 am, Saturday

I’ll see if my pen pal in Geauga County knows of those in her area.
I’m hoping more visitors to these events will post photos and comments—especially the 21st Haiti Benefit Auction in my home state of Illinois, since I won’t be able to attend 🙂
Thanks, as usual!
2014 Illinois Haiti Benefit Auction
21st Annual Illinois Haiti Benefit Auction. If you have 13 minutes, it’s worth watching this video from 2014.
Beacon Hill, OH Benefit Auction & Haystack Supper
I meant to pass on this question from our auction list compiler:
Can anyone help find a piece of the auction puzzle? In Ohio in past years, a Benefit Auction and Haystack Supper for Beacon Hill was held in October. Will an auction be held in 2014?
The Amish community in Clarita, Oklahoma has their school auction the second Saturday in September. I’ve gone the last 3 years, it’s great. They have the best cinnamon rolls and I would love to someday be able to afford one of the quilts.
Bethel Mennonite School Fall Auction
On Saturday, October 25, 2014, the 14th Annual Bethel Mennonite School Fall Festival and Benefit Auction will be held at the school grounds at 5946 Brookneal Highway, Gladys, Virginia.
7am Yard Sale
11am ice cream stand open
Crafts and apple butter on sale all day.
Rain or Shine!
Church/School is 2 miles north of Gladys on Brookneal Highway, aka Rt. 501
This is always a nice festival, and the drive is a pretty one this time of year, as it is kind of up towards the foothills. The bbq chicken is great, as is the apple butter and baked goods. I will note that in my experience, they TRY to start auctioning the quilts around 1, but it may be a bit late…. This event usually draws a good crowd, but they have plenty of parking. Hope to see you there.
Graber Farm Machinery Auction Wisconsin
The Grabers are having an auction in Hillpoint, Wisconsin, to sell farm and shop tools, hickory lumber, and household items.

Jamesport Quilt Auction Missouri
At the Oct. 11 Quilt Auction in Jamesport, Missouri, the highest quilt sold for $2,350. Quilts were sold from 9-4:30. Most were hand quilted. About 300 quilts were sold.
They have a quilt show on Thursday where people can vote for the best quilt, a quilt viewing on Friday, and the auction on Saturday. The quilt that was voted to be the best quilt of the show, a Dreamscape pattern, was the one that sold for the most money. The top dollar Dreamscape was black, white, yellow, and cream colored.
