We are only 5 minutes from Topeka and soon the auctions will be starting!!

TOPEKA'S AUCTIONS are starting March 17-21 is the Spring Draft Horse sale. Anyone looking for a parade or pulling team, looking for horses to work the fields or a good stallion for breeding this is the place for you!! The CARRIAGE AUCTION is April 16-17 here in Topeka. You just never know what type of antiques you may find here. They range from Sleighs and Carriages, wagon wheels, fur traps, anvils, house hold antiques, horse tack, small farm equipment, lawn ornaments and much more!!!!!
Remember "One man's JUNK is another man's TREASURE"!!
Thursday there are normally 3 ring running, 1. inside ring where you sit in bleachers and they bring the items in on wagons. 2. outside (misc.)ring (where almost anything could be found) and a 3rd ring selling small farm equipment, lawn ornaments, wagon wheels, push plows and MORE! Friday they sell the Sleighs, carriages, horse tack and a whole lot more. I can never go on Friday, but one of these days I am going to take off work and buy a sleigh. Fix it all up, use it for Christmas and who know I might even put a horse on it and use it.

Come a day early and visit Shipshewana's auction on Wednesday then come to the Carriage auction Thursday and Friday. Make a small vacation out of it MIRROR LAKE B&B would make a GREAT place to come back to after the auctions relax and watch a beautiful sunset, eat good food uptown and get some good buys too!!
Other sales of all types that take place at Topeka through out the year also.

We enjoy the rustic, private and peaceful atmosphere, paddle boat rides, fishing, setting around the campfire and watching beautiful sun sets on Mirror Lake. Coming to Mirror lake is more then a destination.... it’s an awaking a life style almost forgotten.
