18th Annual Consignment Auction

Visited the huge consignment sale held by Bill Klassen Auctions in Winkler / Morden Manitoba. Not sure of the final numbers today, but in in 2003 and 2004 this auction ran 3 Rings all day and over 1400 bidding numbers handed out. Hundreds of items including combine harvesters, tractors, tillage equipment, lawn and garden, grain bins, cars, trucks, semi trailers, quad 4 wheelers, livestock equipment, and even a large coin collection was sold. Considering it was 35C / 95F, the strangest thing to buy on a day like this was a snowblower. I think I got a good deal on it !
