Remember Mud Sales?

MudSales One-02In the nine years we have been Innkeepers of the Walnut Lawn Bed and Breakfast, we have marveled each year when the “Mud Sales” come up in the Winter and Spring. Mud Sales are so called because they are held each Saturday during the Winter and Spring months and are held outside and inside at a local Fire House. Depending on the weekend you would come, the grounds may be deep in mud from early rains or disappearing snows. We remember our guests one year brought boots to go to a mud sale because of the wetness of the grounds.                                                                                                                                        

There are two highlights of visiting a mud sale. One is to experience the sights and sounds of the Amish Community. Everywhere you will turn, there will be something that will stay a beautiful memory. The food, auctions and so many places to sit or stand and watch the comings and goings of people. The second highlight is the auction of QUILTS. You can go the Fire Hall the night before the sale and check-out all the Quilts that will be auctioned off the next day. The auction usually starts early in the morning and lasts until all the Quilts are gone. When you buy one of these treasures, the process is seamless from paying to packaging to best wishes.

If you have never attended a “Mud Sale”, this may be a great year to come. Here is a partial list of Mud Sales and all you need to do is pick one and call us for a reservation.
