Saxony Lutheran High School is planning an expansion to its building. To help equip the new classrooms, an auction of unique items will take place this Saturday.
There are the “normal” auction items for sure, but along with quilts, dish sets, lamps and hand tools, are some rare items that have been donated to benefit Saxony Lutheran High School.
A fairly new front loading washing machine and an almost brand new Troy Built Chipper shredder for leaf and limb grinding are included in the Feb. 17 benefit auction, which will begin at 9 a.m. at the Mill Warehouse, 422 Old Cape Rd., Jackson. Dan Stover is the auctioneer.
If you have a taste for nostalgia and collect Jackson memorabilia, a collection of rare 1930s yearbooks from Jackson High School might convince you to check out Saturday’s auction.
If you’re drawn to music and have a fond recollection of drive-ins, a table-sized jukebox may be a more appealing purchase.
Have a home furnished in antiques? A gray wicker baby buggy might complement and complete your collection.
Jim Whaley and Gene Leimer, board of regents and executive board members, have been collecting the benefit auction merchandise for two months.
Whaley said, “Some of the items may be old, but they’re in good shape.”
A rare electric battery-powered lawn mower is complete with an extra battery. A “never heard of or seen, electric tiller,” is also on the auction block according to Whaley.
Glass collectors might be interested in a crate full of one-pint Pepsi bottles, considered rare.
Proceeds from the auction will be used to purchase equipment for new structures at Saxony Lutheran High School.
