Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Flea Market

Does the White’s Farm flea market run all year?

Yes, our flea market operates every Wednesday from daylight until noon, year round. We are also open the 2nd and 4th Tuesday every month through the summer from 4pm until dark.

White’s does reserve the right to cancel flea markets or auctions due to extreme weather or other emergencies which would affect our ability to provide safe and appropriate professional services.


What do I have to do to set up a booth at the flea market?

The process is very simple. Vendors begin arriving on Tuesday evening and early Wednesday morning. The spaces in the front of our large center barn are reserved. Spaces north of the center barn (toward the hill) are on a first-come, first-served basis unless marked. To learn more, see our Vendor Information page.


Do I need an Indiana retail sales tax certificate to be a vendor?

Indiana sales tax laws apply.
1) You may apply for your own Indiana retail sales tax certificate and send your own tax collections to the State, OR,
2) If you do not have an Indiana retail sales certificate you must collect the 6% sales tax which is payable at the White’s Farm office and will forwarded by us to the Indiana Department of Revenue.


May I sell food or drinks at the flea market?

NO. We have arrangements with our insurance carrier that any food concessions will be under the supervision of White’s Farm. Absolutely no food or drink may be sold for consumption at the flea market by vendors.


Are there restrictions on what I am allowed to sell?

You may sell anything which may be sold legally in Indiana except food, drinks, and pornography.

Auctions

Why should I sell my real estate at auction?

Private treaty sales (which deal with potential buyers one at a time) may result in selling the property without everyone having an opportunity to buy. The auction method brings all interested buyers together at the same place and same time to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to participate in the bidding. The auction method also ensures the seller that the property will have a definite date of sale, eliminating the question of, “How long before my property will sell, and how far do I have to reduce the price to sell my property?”


If I have a real estate auction, am I required to accept the final bid?

All of the real estate that we sell at auction is sold subject to the owner’s confirmation, leaving the final decision to the seller.


What expenses are involved in having a real estate auction?

Sellers pay a minimal commission plus advertising expense and the cost of any necessary surveys if the property sells. If the property does not sell, sellers are responsible for the advertising expense and cost of sale plus a small predetermined fee.
