Fryes Measure Mill


Frye's Silent Auction
Spring/Summer 2013

Back in 2008 during our 150th Anniversary Celebration we decided to hold a silent auction to help raise funds for the mill's restoration projects (of which there seems to be no end!). It was so well received that we have continued to hold two per year ever since. Until now they were only available if you visited the gift shop and filled out a bid sheet. Recently however - wait for the drum roll please - we have had so many requests for an online bid sheet that we have put the following one together for your convenience and participation.

Here's how it Works


We include items from varying categories: antiques, prototypes, limited editions, specialty items, new hot off the press pieces, and yes work done especially for the auction by Harley and Pam.

An item's exact price or an estimated price if it is an antique or prototype is listed.  You may bid low (are you feeling lucky), high, or in between.  We've had people place winning bids in all of these categories.  You will be notified by phone if you are the high bidder.  Payment by credit card or check is made and you may pick up the item(s) at your convenience.  Need us to ship to you?  That's not a problem.  Generally items are sent from here via UPS.  A shipping charge will be added to your purchase.


Here is a link to the online Silent Auction Bid Sheet.


Final bids must be made by June 30, 2013
Winners will be notified the week of July 6, 2013
Please turn the bid sheet in to the cashier.
