Our Miscellaneous & Antique Auction is held every Wednesday, year round. The auction starts by the sound of the bell at 9 am sharp! Eight to ten auctioneers will take up the auction cry. Our main market thrust is for the better quality antique and collectible items, however as one of our old time auctioneers, Argie, used to state, "We sell anything from soup to nuts!" 

Every Wednesday we have people in attendance from all across the country. Many of our customers are here every Wednesday, both buyers and sellers, while every Wednesday there are people in attendance for the very first time. First time or for the last 40 years, we appreciate your business. 

If you are interested in selling, give us a call to reserve your auction space. If you are wanting to buy - one time or a box truck full, this is the place!

Photos are uploaded as received by the vendors and each Tuesday evening by 5 pm, so check back often to see what has been added. This sampling of items is a great way to find where you want to start your bidding on the day of the sale!  *Please Note: Day of sale takes precedence over advertised material (listings, captions, photo gallery and print ads). Thank you for understanding.

Lodging with the Farmstead Inn & Conference Center is right across the road. Our beautiful Inn is open to meet your rooming needs and you can book your stay by calling 260.768.4595, or book online now.
