Joey Martin Auctioneers Welcomes Crowd to Its Sale in Blairsville, Ga.

Thu April 27, 2023 - Southeast Edition #9
CEG


The "rain maker" came to Blairsville, Ga., April 22 and the regulars at the north Georgia auctions for Joey Martin Auctioneers know the meaning of this. After a picture-perfect week in Blairsville, the skies opened and soaked the sale site for the Saturday sale. This in no way, however, dampened the spirit of the crowd, which looked to be half of the city of Blairsville.

As always, a nice lineup of heavy machines, mini/compact equipment, trucks, trailers, farm equipment and much-much more made for a successful sale. CEG
