Strawser Spring Auction Date Set

Recommended Posts

The Strawser Spring Fiesta Auction will be held on Saturday, April 21, beginning at 10 a.m. The actual location of the auction is the LaGrange County Fairgrounds, 2 miles east of LaGrange, Indiana, on US 20 to CR 200 E, then north 3/4 mile to CR 75 N, then west to Fairgrounds. Those fortunate enough to attend in person can begin previewing the items at 8 a.m.

Don't worry if you can't attend in person because the auction will also run on eBay Live Auctions. Online previewing will be available, and early and absentee bids will be accepted.

You can view the entire catalog on the Strawser website at Strawser Auction Group. Just click on Auction Calendar, select Fiesta Auction, and select the Catalog tab. The page is set up to enable viewing of each of the catalog items; however, this link does not appear to be working at the moment. I'm sure it will be fixed soon.

If you have never participated in or viewed an online live auction, I recommend the experience. It's very exciting. And the twice-annual Strawser auctions are amazingly good. It's almost all vintage Fiesta of exceptional quality. Here is their description of the items:

Over 550 lots of Fiesta, Harlequin, Kitchen Kraft and Hall Crocus to include several flower vases; water carafes; demitasse coffee servers; demitasse cups and saucers; several pieces of medium greeen - 3-4 3/4" fruit bowls, individual salad, disk water pitcher, cream/sugar, and other; coffee pots; teapots; individual creamers and sugars; footed salad bowls; sweets comports; relish trays; candle holders; plates; bowls; cups/saucers; disk water and juice pitchers; tumblers; and more; HARLEQUIN several lots of Harlequin in various shapes, sizes and colors; KITCHEN KRAFT: stacking units, platters, cake plates, covered jug, covered jar, utensils and more: HALL CROCUS: 60+ pieces of Hall Crocus in various shapes - coffee servers, mixing bowls, shakers and much more POST 86 FIESTA: large selection of lilac and other Post 86 Fiesta.

I have been talking with Mr. Strawser. He is planning on a summer Fiesta auction. The date is not set but is planned for June. Making the live auction as a vacation destination would be fun.
