You’ll find plenty of outdoor recreation items at the North Thompson Premier Consignment Auction in Barriere on May 5.

There’s a new business in town – Haydn Auction Services; and owner Bruce Williams says though the company has 20 years experience holding auctions in the Lower Mainland,  they are now based right here in Barriere.

Williams is looking forward to their first Barriere event, scheduled for May 5, 2012;  the North Thompson Premier Consignment Auction will start 10 a.m. sharp, at 748 Barriere Lakes Road, (just a short distance east from the fall fair grounds).   Pre-viewing will take place May 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Williams says folks are encouraged to consign “anything they want”, and although the auction will be held in a farm setting, “it is not limited to farm items”.

Consignments so far include: 1993 Ford F-350, mining equipment, generators, antiques, boat, motorcycles, quad, farm equipment, 5’ rototiller, 7’ 3pt John Deere Cultivator, 8’ 3pt. Massey Tandem Disc, 3pt. John Deere 2 bottom plow, tools, snow blowers, weed eaters, pressure washer, fuel tanks, furniture building supplies, household items, furniture, and more.

Williams also notes he would be more than willing to take consignment items that folks might want the proceeds to go towards the North Thompson Agriplex building project.  The NT Fall Fair and Rodeo Association is currently fundraising for stage two of the Agriplex for completion this year.

This is spring cleaning time, and an auction is a great opportunity to clear-out the clutter and all those items that just collect dust or clog up the garage.
