Mount Pleasant, Michigan Amish auction
Rustic Russ reports on the Yoder Horse and Carriage Auction in Mount Pleasant, MI. Russ has a nice site with a number of Michigan Amish posts and photos.
Furniture is among the many items sold at Amish auctions; woodworking has become a chief industry among Amish, many of whom have opened small businesses in recent years. Read more on Amish woodcraft in the state: Amish Furniture-Michigan.
This is great, actually I didn’t know there were Amish in Mount Pleasant, Mich.. I am only an hour and a half from Mount Pleasant and I can drive there easy and back home in the same day…
Actually I may have seen there signs that there were Amish there, but, maybe didn’t pay much attention at that time…
Thank you for this posting as this is much closer to home for me.. 🙂
I am so glad I stumbled across this blog. Please do keep blogging. My daughter, 5 years old, loves this site and so do I. God bless!
Thanks Rose, and thanks too Stan, she might be the site’s youngest reader!
It’s not in Mount Pleasant, though. It’s actually in Clare, which is a town over. I’ve been to this auction and live in Mt.Pleasant. The people are lovely. I picked up a wonderful cookbook from the Lakeview and Six Lakes Amish ladies churchgroup that is just invaluable. Along with some delicious cookie bars!
Hi Emele ~ Yes, the Yoder Amish quilt auction is in Clare. However the horse and carriage auction, which is on different weekends, has been held at the Isabella County Fair the last couple years. I’m not sure for 2010. Both events used to be in Clare at the Yoder farm.
