Mud Sales Lancaster County PA




Although winter is still ever present in Lancaster County, it is not to early to begin planning your trip to the area for the highly anticipated enormously exciting Mud Sales.  What is a Mud Sale?  I'm glad you asked, a Mud Sale: is the Lancaster County term for an annual auction/sale at one of a number of local fire companies.  The term derives from the exceedingly muddy grounds where the sales take place due to the winter thaw.  The majority of the sales happen in March, but there is one in February and they even continue through the Spring.  However, you do not really appreciate the Mud Sale experience when the ground is nice and dry.  But why go through the hassle of getting muddy and dirty you ask? Another excellent 
question.  The sales naturally.  One can purchase just about anything at these sales and often times obtain a great deal.  For example, my brother-in-law purchased a couple of bath tubs, a motor, a vanity, a bookshelf, and a shop-vac at one last year.  They also sell tools, lawn equipment, lumber, quilts, buggies; you name they've got it.  Of course, in order to experience the Mud Sale adventure you will need a base of operation; well you are in luck.  Not only is the Adamstown Inn and Cottages conveniently located to many of the Mud Sales, but we are also continuing our BOGO deals (stay two nights Sun-Thurs. receive on night free; stay Fri and Sat. receive 50% off the second night *excludes certain rooms) through March 31st. So plan your excursion to PA Dutch Country today.
