What's For Sale?
At Dinky’s Auction Center, there’s really no telling what’s for sale, just lots and lots of it.
Located in a 36,000 square foot building, the auction begins at 6 p.m. CDT every Friday.
Up to seven auctioneers keep things moving and items vary from week to week. You’re
guaranteed a wide selection of things to bid on, everything from household items, buggy
parts, furniture, livestock, hand tools, food and of course Amish products. Food and
refreshments are always available.
In addition to the regular Friday night auctions, there are various antique, livestock, horse/pony and tack auctions throughout the year, including one of the three National Horse and Carriage Sales held by the Amish people of Daviess County. Semi-annual Amish horse auctions are held in March and September, and during the Christmas holidays.
Come to Dinky’s and find your bargain. Located just minutes from Gasthof Amish Village, Dinky’s is a weekly Friday night tradition in the heart of Amish country.
