A few MORE of the Gathering Auction items . . .

no game of chance here - they are all sure to please!

Some samples of the items for auction are:


What a way to end the day, good cup of coffee or tea, and a steaming bowl of soup and crackers. After a hard day of working on the farm, cleaning pastures, grooming, showing, the best way to relax is a bowl of soup, a cup of coffee or tea and good company. Now you can share that relaxing time with llamas at your hand and on the dinner table by way of your service setting.

A donation of Gordon and Pam Jensen of Hid'N'Hills Ranch - Cochrane, Wisconsin. Gordy and Pam love the idea of watching their llamas at dinner time and now you can also have them with you with you while you eat, watch TV, are at the computer, or whatever you need to do. A simple item, a unique item, a nice way to unwind.


This is a very unique item donated by Daniel Kirchner - owner of Against the Current Arts - Fountain City, Wisconsin. Dan spends his free time in the out of doors, enjoying nature and getting ideas for his art work. He then computer draws the art work and it is cut in metal and then glazed and sealed for a very "one of a kind" look. Dan's work is carried by Cabela's Outdoor Store and is featured at Duck's Unlimited, Whitetail's Unlimited and many art shows and wildlife events in the midwest. For more information regarding this piece and other unique works of metal art by Dan e-mail him at:


For the lady who is looking for that special fashion statement in her wardrobe - check this out. A side button wrap done in Tunisian crochet by Barb Baker of Baker and Company Llamas - Barb does fantastic work with llama yarn and this wrap is one of her best items. Barb generously donates this to the ILR-SD auction items with the knowledge that some lucky lady will be on the top of the best dressed list when she steps out for an evening. Ladies!!! be sure to see this on display and bring your checkbook - this  item will go fast and the bids will be ever changing. Check out Barb's booth of lovely items at the Gathering!
