I bought some jellies. They sold them off one jar at a time, and I got some chokecherry, blueberry, strawberry, wild plum-raspberry, orange-rhubarband some applebutter. Steve opened the chokecherry first, and loves it. Says it is just like the chokecherry his mom used to make. So he is pleased with what I got. I also got a basket. It is supposed to be used for groceries, but I'm going to put my magazines in it. It is out in the garage yet, because of the wood stain smell. They must have been made recently, because the smell is so strong. Here are some pictures of some of the quilts that sold when I was there. There were so many more to be sold. I think they were going very resonable. The system they had was good. The quilts were all numbered, and after you got the last bid, they took the quilt back to the rack and the ladies put it in a plastic bag, with your bidder number on it. Then after you paid for your quilt, and showed them the receipt, they gave you the quilt. This way, the bidder didn't have to hold the quilt throughout the sale, with a chance of it getting dirty.
From the chair I was sitting in, looking over the platform they brought everything up to sell, we see a pile of rugs to be sold, and how the quilts are hanging. There were 286 quilts there!!!! So much work and time put into them. The tent was yellow and white, so it the light filtering in made the colors somewhat dull.
This is one of the quilt tops 100" x 112" that sold. It went for $180.00.
Another quilt top 53" x 53" that went for $65.00.
This 90" x 108" finished quilt went for $165.00. All the bright colors framed by black are so pretty.
This Texas LoneStar quilt was finished and measured 97" x 107". It sold for $280.00.
There were some table toppers and wall hangings that were just the tops that went for 10.00. I could hardly believe that. Some very good buys.
There was furniture, and here is a picture of a hickory bedroom set. It is beautiful!
I left before the sale ended, but the next one I go to, I'll stay til the end. Think I'll start saving some money too. I would have liked to have bought some outdoor furniture. So after having been to my first Amish Auction, I'll be ready to go again!
Sunday for Mother's Day, hubby took me and our daughter Leah and Steven out for brunch. The other two girls missed out because they don't live here. Wish we were all closer. My sister and hubby went to southern MN to be with our middle daughter Stephani and Cullen. They had a horse show on Sunday, but it got rained out. It is rainy here today, but now later in the day it's quit. I'd like a few days for sunshine. Need to get out into the yard to work on flower garden and get ready to mow for the first time.
I went to the chiropractor again today. He adjusted me last week, and again today. I needed adjustment on my neck, mid back and tailbone area. Now feel great again!!!!!!!! I can turn my head again without the grind of sand (arthritis), and stand without hurting!
Have a great week!
Hope you all have a great week.
