I had never been to an Amish Auction before and I really enjoyed this one. There were lots of Amish and very few Englishers there. I did not get pictures of much of the farm equipment coming up for auction as the Amish men were looking at it and I didn't want to cause problems taking pictures. I really enjoyed the hand made ice cream that the Amish ladies made and sold there. It was delicious. When the auction of the property started, they were told that possession was suppose to be in 30 days, but wouldn't be for at least 12 weeks as the Amish man selling the farm had twisted and broken his hip - for the second time. He had an operation and a steel plate put in, was home, but wouldn't be able to move for at least 12 weeks. The house with the barns, ice house, and some land sold for $65,000.00 (which was very low). A young, I believe, Amish man bought it. The acres across the street sold for $215,000.00. Am not sure, but I think an Englisher bought that. The pictures are of the house, the lot where the buggies were parked. I have a lot more buggy pictures that I will but on maybe next week. Next pictures of some of the farm items sold. I like the picture of the horses watching the auction - they weren't for sale. I did sneak a picture of the Amish watching the auction. Lastly are some pictures of household items being sold. Elmer wanted that sewing machine for his granddaughters. John wanted it for his future wife as she uses her mother's sewing machine. Elmer said just one of us win it and we can figure it out when we get home. I didn't stay that long so I don't know who won it, but I am sure Elmer will let us know. I also don't know if John bought any of the farm equipment.
If anyone else was there and took pictures, please let me know as I would like to put them on here.
