SEPTEMBER – THE MONTH FOR AUCTIONS
“In September with all the fall work to be done, one of the few distractions farmers allow themselves is an auction sale. The auctioneer’s job is really recycling. He advertises to get people to the sale and then coaxes the very best price he can for the farmer client. Prices aren’t set as in a store; each item is sold to the person who offers the most money. People come from miles around because it’s entertaining as well as a great way to pick up a bargain.”
