If you want to go to an auction this is the best. Richard has so much knowledge about items he is selling. An added attraction, the homemade pies. Even if you do not bid it is still fun.

Great place to find antiques and vintage treasures . Auctioneer Richard Wattch calls the bids and gives information on each item....still going after 50 years. Sue makes pies for the crowd. Hot dogs, hamburgers also available. No buyers fees...no credit cards. Inspect before you buy to avoid disappointments....No kids...a must visit if in the area

This place is so much fun to visit! The auctioneer, Rich, is funny and knowledgeable about what he's selling. If you go early enough, you can purchase excellent pie and, surprisingly, the coffee is pretty great as well! Then browse and be entertained. If you're serious about looking for some antiques, they have them, but each week varies...and if you... More

Thanks for the review. We have just a few corrections here. It is Canton Barn's co-owner, Susan, who bakes the pies each week. A few of the recipes were handed down by the auctioneer's mother years ago while other recipes were gathered from Susan's family and magazines. Susan wrote a book with her pie recipes titles "Collectable, Delectable Pies! The... More
