***SELF GUIDED DIRECTORY OF AMISH WARES & SERVICES***
Clare County is home to a large community of Amish, with roots going back to the original founders from Switzerland. The Amish way of life is one of simple enjoyment of the land and community. Skills are passed down through the generations and the Amish craftsmen are renowned for their finely crafted products including furniture, quilts, and baskets. Baked goods and produce from their farms are offered for purchase along the roadside when weather permits.
The Yoder’s and their friends hold a large quilt auction, craft show, and flea market each spring (third Friday and Saturday of May) and late summer (Friday and Saturday of Labor Day weekend). Imagine fields transformed with rows of crafters, antiques, and flea marketers – hundreds of vendors in all! This event is one of the largest, well attended, craft shows, flea markets and quilt auctions in Michigan. No machine stitched quilts are sold at the auction. In addition to the Amish crafted furniture, quilts and goods, one may purchase an array of arts and craft items, discounted tools, jewelry, cutlery, jams, and plants – to name a few. A number of concession stands and several food specialty tents, featuring baked goods and cheese, are hosted by the Amish women. Parking is best in downtown Clare with shuttle services running to and from the auction site on a regular basis.
The Yoder Brother’s Auction host a consignment horse and tack auction and a separate auction for equipment every spring and fall.
