SHIPPENSBURG—The estate of a local businessman and philanthropist will be sold in a two-day public auction May 20-21.
Jake Crider was the owner and founder of Crider’s Meats of Shippensburg, a local history buff, hunter and fisherman, a woodcarver and, most importantly, he and his wife were a generous part of the community.
This unique onsite sale “like the good old days” includes items that well represent Crider’s passions.
Day 1 will begin at 9 a.m. with outbuildings and lawn items followed by selling from the garage. Day 2 will begin with some general household followed shortly by vintage/collectibles. Guns/ammo will be sold at noon, followed by pony wagon and canoe. Furniture will be sold at 2 p.m.
