In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Amish School Auction

Last Saturday my Shug and I decided to take a morning off and head over to a school auction. I didn't have my camera with me. But I had my here are some pics of what was at this auction.

I loved the table, but there were around five or six auctioneers going all at once! And after a couple of hours, they still hadn't gotten to this tent of stuff.

I wanted one of these too, but I knew I'd wake up at 3:00 a.m. and my first thought would be....'what in the hell was I thinking?'

This auction is held once a year and the proceeds are used to fund the school. It is an Amish school. They don't believe in debt.

I did hang around this table to see how much these jars went for. I would have bid on them, but they went for $30 EACH!

We left before they got to this sewing machine. Probably a good thing since I have no where to put one!

We ate lunch, and to tell the wasn't that good. I suppose they keep the good stuff for themselves and feed us from a food service. It's true. You don't have to believe me, but I can tell you exactly where those frozen hamburgers came from.

The only thing we bought that day was a carton of eggs and some noodles.

It was a fun morning just getting out with my Shug.

What would you have bid on?
