Adams County Fall Trade Days

Several hundred people pulled out their bartering skills and descended on the Adams County Fairgrounds last weekend for the 2015 Adams County Fall Trade Days.

Forty two vendors set up booths in the barns surrounding the center ring of the fair ground.

Among the heaps of treasures were antiques, vintage clothing, collectibles, guns, jewelry, primitive crafts, video games, household goods and appliances, and so much more. Trade Days allows frugal shoppers to search out useful and unusual items in a price-friendly market where haggling is welcome. “If you need it, someone here will have it,” one vendor declared, “and if we don’t have it, we can get it for you.”

Darlene Anderson, Vice President of the Adams County Agricultural Society(ACAS), said, “We’ve had four good years for Trade Days. We have most of our vendors under roof, so the rain on Saturday didn’t keep people away.”

The Johnathan Shiveley Memorial Crash-up Derby was also held on Saturday night during Trade Days. Shiveley was the 2014 Crash-up Derby winner. He was killed in a gun-related accident last year, he was fourteen years old.

“We’re really grateful to everyone who came out to participate in the derby,” said Craig Shiveley, Johnathan’s father.

The derby featured eight crash up divisions: one power wheel, two lawn mower, and five car derbys.

Event organizer Chris Mack said, “My crew helped make this derby a success, thanks to Randy Caudill, Glen Shoemaker, Kevin Howell, Erica Howell, Shannon Setty-Trotter, Chaz Mack, and Craig Shiveley for heading up the memorial side of the show.”

First place winners of this years derby were: Mini Stock – Devin Redmon; Mini Mod – Roger Lee Colter; Fullsize Stock – Brandon Pendelton; Fullsize Mod – Chuck Taylor; Smash It Class – Roger Rafferty; Youth Mowers – Jacob Caudill; and Senior Mowers – Matt Young. All car classes paid $1,000, $200, and $100 plus the MadDog cash prize.

A special Mad Dog award was given to the audience favorite in each event. David Cobb of DJ’s Mufflers in West Union built the trophies for the MadDog winners. Cobb’s unique trophies are made of car parts, painted and presented to the winners.

There were 69 participating derby cars. “It is a tribute to the Shiveley family that so many people came out to support this event,” said Anderson.

”We also owe a big thank you to Tom White,” she added,”the clay on top of the track was sodden from the rains, Tom brought his bulldozer and pushed the clay off the track, so we didn’t have to cancel the event.”
