....relatively recent glimpses...

A journey to discovery

                                            Henry Stein

 is a path we all travel

it is wide, it is a narrow


timeless and filled with wonder


David Zabriskie

all travel the same road  


Worden Select Objects

yet witness a multitude of variations



the epiphany is within reach


openness is essential  


Georgia Morel Antiques 

lightness of heart is helpful


judgement is discouraged


perspective should be variable


neutrality is a must


yearn for nothing


Kitty & Tony Ables

fulfillment is realization


 your heart will be filled


The Mustard Seed Antiques

with love, beauty


Kara Fogertey
Studio F

and lightness


it's yours to behold


remember to return



and relive


we'll be waiting!

Shipshewana "Where Friends Meet"

1922 and the Shipshewana Auction began to attract.

Bidders arrived early to preview auctions offerings.

Bidding numbers can be attained in the office.

Auction is held year round regardless of the weather!

The game begins every Wednesday at 9:00am

Some are 1st time attendees .

                                  Others are "regulars"


      "cat"                                 "uncle" 
                     "high sign"

   "Gatsby"                        "Norm"                                                "The God Father"                                        


It's the place the plunder is at!

The deed is measured by time.

Auction culture is an art characterized
 by chaos.

Up to 10 auctioneers selling simultaneously!   

The fast action requires one to be alert.

Some come to bid, some come to learn, 
many come just  to be entertained!

Be sure & bring a vehicle large enough to 
take home your purchases.

Wheeler-dealers from across the nation meet at Shipshewana.

Feel free to visit, bid and buy.
