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 2021 the auction will take place both in-person and online. Pre-bidding has already started and will stop at a specified time soon before the sale. 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 to pick up the item. Shipping may be possible for some items, at buyer’s expense. Payment may be made online with credit card, or in person.
The silent auction will be available for in-person bidding only. Items will be available to view on Friday and bidding will close on half of the items at 12:00 pm Saturday, with the rest closing at 1:00 pm. You must be registered for an in-person bid number to bid on the silent auction items.
Friday, October 1 – 7:00 pm until finished (around 9:00 pm)
Saturday, October 2 – 9:30 am until finished (around 2:00 pm)
The auction relies on donated items. We are especially in need of wooden items.
We will accept items until the sale weekend, although only items received by September 3rd will be included in pre-sale publicity. Items to be auctioned will need to be photographed to be displayed on the auction website. Items for the live and silent auctions should be brought to the Rockingham County Fairgrounds the morning of Thursday, Sept. 30.
** The Auction Board reserves the right to determine where and when the items will be sold at the Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale.
