At the Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale Auction there is something for everyone to bid on! The auction is famous for its beautiful handmade quilts, but you’ll also find comforters, wall hangings, art, furniture, unique woodwork, collectibles, and more!
All items are donated, allowing the proceeds of each sale to benefit the Relief Sale (MCC). Payments accepted include cash, check, and credit card.
Online & In Person
In 2022 the auction will be a simulcast auction with bidding taking place in-person and online at the same time. Early online bidding has already opened! On the auction days, people may watch online and place bids while others are bidding in person.
Items will be on display at the fairgrounds during the Relief Sale. The high bidder will need to come to the fairgrounds or send somebody to pick up the item. Shipping may be possible for some items, at buyer’s expense. Payment may be made over the phone with credit card, or in person.
The auction relies on donated items. Forms may be submitted online:
