About Us

Shipshewana Trading Place / Shipshewana Auction Inc. is a family-owned organization and destination whose mission is to bring buyers and sellers together in order to promote an enjoyable visit to Shipshewana, Indiana.

We got our start in 1922 when six pigs, seven cows and several head of young cattle were sold at the home of George Curtis during the very first livestock auction. Now, we are home to eight diverse businesses and a host of numerous special events.

The businesses that fall under the Shipshewana Trading Place family include:

Located in the heart of Northern Indiana's Amish Country, visitors should not leave the area without experiencing the one-of-a-kind shopping, bidding, selling, and hospitality that is found at Shipshewana Trading Place. As the organization grows and evolve, visitors, buyers and sellers can continue to expect top-notch customer service along with a friendly smile.
