Members of Phipps Real Estate and Auctions are making it a reality by holding the first Mike Phipps Memorial Consignment Equipment Auction on April 26, at the Morgan County Fairgrounds.
Phipps, who passed away last year following a battle with cancer, always wanted to hold a consignment auction for used farm equipment in Morgan County, says Quentin Murphy, board president for the fairgrounds.
“The rest of his team approached the fair board because we have the space,” says Murphy.
The auction will accept equipment April 23 through April 25, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. They will not accept any vehicle tires, float trays, tobacco sticks or fuel tanks.
Cash or approved check will be accepted. Anyone with an out-of-area check will need to have a letter of credit.
