Fiber Equipment Auction
New this year!!! The used equipment auction has been expanded to include a silent auction for smaller equipment and tools with less than a $50 minimum bid. We continue the live auction for larger items. So, it is time to clean out your closets and storerooms and give your loved, but no longer needed, equipment treasures a new home.
We have also moved the auction to Saturday afternoon from 2-4pm in hopes of getting more participation from both buyers and sellers.
Types of things included:
Live auction: Wheels, looms, drum carders, warping boards, etc. with a minimum bid of $50
Silent auction: Needles, books, shuttles, books, etc. with no minimum bid requirement
Do you have a wheel, loom, or other pieces of fiber equipment in a corner collecting more dust than projects? Or maybe you are looking to upgrade or try something different. Perhaps you are a newbie looking to try a loom or wheel. This year’s Festival, in cooperation with the Southern Adirondack Fiber Producers Cooperative is featuring both a live and silent auction of used fiber related tools and toys. The auction will take place from 2-4pm on Saturday and items will be available for preview during Festival hours up until the time of the auction.
