Saturday, March 21
This is the largest yearly event in our nearby, very small village.
It brings in lots of people – many Amish – as funds raised are for the fire company and a local Amish school.
As you can see, it snowed the night before the sale…
…and the morning sun was hazy from the cloudy sky.
There are lots of steel wheel items – as Amish are not allowed to use rubber tires.
The first people I met were Ashela (our great-niece) and our granddaughter Gloria.
Lots of interesting equipment lined the field behind the fire hall.
Need any hay?
There were lots of people there, and many auctions had begun when I got there at 8:30 AM.
Getting a swing ride on a swing set that was for sale.
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.
Wagon wheels for sale
A yard chicken.
As snow melted, it became a “real” mud sale.
Checking out items.
Someone made a successful purchase.
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.
Part 2 tomorrow evening.
