Western, antique auction on tap


The 31st annual Western and Antique Auction returns Friday and Saturday to the Deschutes Fair & Expo Center in Redmond.

A wide array of Western collectables will be on display, such as spurs, chaps, Native American collectibles, artwork, home decor and horse items. Other vendors selling Western-related goods will also be present Friday. Food will be available.

Preview of the merchandise starts at 10 a.m. Friday. The auction starts at 4:30 p.m. Then the doors open again 8 a.m. Saturday, with the auction resuming at 9 a.m. and going into the afternoon. An Internet auction will be taking place simultaneously.

“There are museum-quality items that once sold into private collections won’t be seen again possibly for a long time,” Organizer Ramona Hulick said.

The event will be in the dairy barn on the south end of the fair complex, 3800 S.W. Airport Way in Redmond.
