Milroy Indiana

If anyone would like to know more about this sale let me know and I would be glad to help .
This is a sale I go to in the spring each year and in the fall . They have many auction rings going at the same time so it would be a good idea to bring a friend with you to make sure you get the items you want .

Milroy is in southeastern Ind. Not so far from the courthouse with the tree growing out the top of it.
Honeyville is in Lagrange county near Shipshewanna About 10 miles south of Michigan.

When is the Honeyville auction? I would like to attend it.

I live not far from Milroy and go there for bulk supplies every once in a while. I'd really like to know more about the auction up there. Can you give me some details?

BTW...when you're up that way there's a wonderful diner right across the street from the courthouse (with the tree) named "Story's". We eat there all the time and it's soooo good! Be sure to get some pie while you can...

Thanks
Eliz

I think my neighbor was telling me about their pie. They've been there..I haven't, but, am really itching to go. Know a number of people that do and I need to be one of them ( auction and pie.)

DW and I go to Greensburg about twice a month to do our shopping. We eat at Story's at least once a month.

I used to go to Dinkys every Friday night, but I have only gone once this year. It's funny but the guy that owns Dinkys isn't even Amish.

I am not far from Greensburg, but I have never eaten at Story's. I'll have to try it out sometime.

Funny seeing people talk about Dinky's on here. I am from that area on Indiana (Just outside of Bloomfield) It sure is a small world.
