Folk Art, or Antiques? What’ll It Be?

Eenie, meenie, miney, mow
Will I visit the auction,
Or go to the antique show?…

This week, Shipshewana offers both an auction and a show!

Shipshewana has been holding auctions since…well…forever. The experience is fascinating. Check out this video for a taste of the setting where dozens of auctioneers are lilting out their wares…all at the same time! Click here to see the video.

Tomorrow at the Antique Auction building, the Old & Contemporary Folk Art Auction will be going on at the same time the regular Wednesday auctions take place.

How would you like to be the proud owner of this guitar dressed up with better-than-rhinestones bottle caps?…

Or, bid on this heart-shaped box with a Babe Ruth photo for your Valentine.

You will see these items and many more. Come get in on the action!

Is an auction not quite the right setting for you?

Then venture to the Antique & Collectibles Show this Saturday, 9-5, also at the Antique Auction Building.

You’ll not find auctioneers at this show, but you will find row upon row of beautiful items from the past.

Looking for that walnut commode stand? Got it.

How about a dresser or coffee table your guests will ooh and aah over? Got that, too.

Clocks, signs, glassware, linens…

My girlfriend once found herself bringing home an entire truckload of outdoor furniture, and she didn’t even own a truck! Talk about a dilemma.

If you like unique, one-of-a-kind items, or if you are looking to add to your special collection of treasures, you’ll love these events.

Just make sure you bring a truck.
