Wise Doughty School Auction

Every year the Wise Doughty School benefit auction is held near Charm, OH. It is way out in the country, but very well attended by locals and visitors. They auction off small items to major furniture items. Some of the furniture is very nice hand built from solid wood.

The parking lot is interesting, with cars, buggies and horses. The auction itself is in a series of tents, and there are multiple auctions going on at any one time. There is lots of food too. Of interest is the chicken grill, 5 racks of chicken, each manned by a volunteer. Every 30 seconds or so every rack is turned to prevent burning.

Overall, a fun event, even though it was extra hot. Below are some pictures. I have tried to minimize direct pictures of the Amish people as it is frowned on by their religion.
