Penryn Mud Sale ~ Part 1 of 3

Saturday, March 21

1 (1)This is the largest yearly event in our nearby, very small village.

1 (2)It brings in lots of people – many Amish – as funds raised are for the fire company and a local Amish school.

1 (3)As you can see, it snowed the night before the sale…

1 (6)…and the morning sun was hazy from the cloudy sky.

1 (4)There are lots of steel wheel items – as Amish are not allowed to use rubber tires.

1 (7)

1 (5)The first people I met were Ashela (our great-niece) and our granddaughter Gloria.

1 (8)Lots of interesting equipment lined the field behind the fire hall.

1 (11)Need any hay?

1 (12)There were lots of people there, and many auctions had begun when I got there at 8:30 AM.

1 (14)Getting a swing ride on a swing set that was for sale.

1 (15)This pussy willow tree was the only outside thing that tempted me, but I didn’t feel like waiting in the cold. We had a pussy willow tree at the farm when I was a girl.

1 (16)Wagon wheels for sale

1 (17)A yard chicken.

1 (18)As snow melted, it became a “real” mud sale.

1 (19)Checking out items.

1 (20)Wagon auctions.

1 (25)Someone made a successful purchase.

1 (26)Mother and daughter boots.

Local people will recognize them in the previous picture – on the right. I think they were just arriving, because Kim’s boots are still clean.

  1. It’s definitely muddy! I love the first few shots in black and white with a splash of color! I didn’t realize that the Amish don’t use rubber.
