Mud Sale 1b (2)Mud sale you ask?

What is that?

Mud Sale 1b (4)They are an area phenomenon ~ benefit auctions for fire companies and Amish schools.

If you really like them you can find one almost every Saturday from the last Saturday in February through the last Saturday in June ~ and several more during the summer and fall months.

  1. My comment was going to be “and there was mud.” It looks as if there were a lot of things for sale, and a lot of people to buy them. I love the carriage — and wonder how much the cow sold for?
