Shipshewana Misc. & Antique Auction

The Shipshewana Antique & Miscellaneous Auction is held every Wednesday, year-round.

The auction starts by the sound of the bell at 9:00 a.m. as six to ten auctioneers simultaneously sell antiques, collectibles, estate items, primitives, glassware, furniture, architectural salvage, advertising signs and so much more.

Our main market thrust is for the better-quality antique and collectible type items, however as one of our old-time auctioneers, Argie, used to state, “We sell anything from soup to nuts!”

An average auction will take auctioneers from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon.

Restrooms and the Auction Snack Bar are located in the auction building.

Buyers may preview auction items in the barn on Tuesdays (7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) and Wednesdays (5:30 a.m. to Auction Time). Or, preview auction listings and item photos online at, auctioneer ID #1945. Photos will be posted by 5:00 p.m. every Tuesday. A buyer number is required to make purchases.

There is a $5.00 Buyer Card Fee. Additional cards are $1.00. Buyer cards are valid for one calendar year, and new cards are required each year. A valid driver’s license is required to obtain an auction buyer number. Please show your buyer number card when making purchases and payments.
