Teresa from Indiana says: The Amish husband and wife were holding the auction to get rid of their excess household and farm items, that were no longer needed. They had moved into the Dawdy House at their son's farm.
When the Amish are older and no longer have children living at home, they move into a smaller house which is called a Dawdy House. Usually the youngest son, purchases the farm from them. This way, in their senior years, they are cared for by the son's family.
Thank you Teresa for the beautiful pictures. I was going to let this be the only post, but there are so many more beautiful pictures that she sent me of the auction. I was going to be greedy and keep them for when I needed a picture-but I can't do that with all of them. So tomorrow is Old Order Amish Auction - Part II.
