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.
