It's that time of year again where it is OK to play in the mud and purchase some amazing things while doing it. February 21st kicks of the Mud Sale season in Honeybrook, PA with Quilts, crafts, new furniture, Winross trucks, Smuckers bells, farm-related supplies, tools, buggies, and heifers. Now that sounds like fun. If you can't attend that Mud Sale there are many more to follow throughout February, March, April, even into the summer, although I don't think it will be quite as muddy in the summer months.
A friend of ours has attended the Gordonville, PA mud sale and thought it was excellent. The claim is that Gordonville is the biggest one and it is "lots of fun......lots of antiques, tools, food carriages and buggies. I attended two years ago and our feet actually sank in the mud, in fact, I almost walked out of my shoes, they were so stuck." So remember to dress for the occasion.
Another plus is that no tax is charged when you purchase an item, do to the fact it is for a volunteer company. If you want to get a feel for a mud sale or curious as to what they look like, I found this website with some great photos, so take a look at these photos to immerse yourself in the Amish Mud Sale environment. Any questions concerning other Mud Sales please comment.
