The owner of W&W Auction of High Springs is holding a pop-up auction in Newberry in two weeks and he's looking for folks to drop off items they want to sell.

Matt Westmoreland said the event is the result of a trade he is doing in exchange for cleanup of an adjacent property.

The owner of Southern Fuelwood located at 328826 W Newberry Road is lending his pasture located directly across the street from his fuel wood factory for the auction. It starts at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 27.

According to Westmoreland, the idea came from area farmers approaching him about selling some of their equipment.

"Two or three farmers around said that they had stuff they didn't use," Westmoreland said.

Now the event is open to those farmers and anyone who is interested in bringing out the following items to sell: farm equipment, cars, trucks, trailers, semis, and tools.

"Anything like that," Westmoreland said. "But no clothes or furniture."

On Thursday, Westmoreland was out on the property parking vehicles and lining up grain haulers. He said starting Monday, anyone wanting to drop off farm equipment can do so and should call him at (352) 316-6515 to make arrangements.

Mainstreet Daily News attended one of Westmoreland's semi-annual farm equipment auctions at his site in High Springs and documented the event. Click here to learn more about what a W&W farm equipment auction is like.
