Having decided to move I have hired Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct an Auction on the farm here on McClelland Ave. on the date and time listed above. Up until this time we have had 4 generations of family living here on the place and have accumulated a vast amount of antiques & collectibles from 125 years of county living. I would invite all to attend and appreciate your time and consideration.

Thank you in advance for attending my Auction.

AUCTIONEERS NOTE: This will be a most interesting country Auction. The antiques & collectibles have been accumulating in the attic, basement and outbuildings for over 125 years. The family operated the Grant Co-op Creamery since the early 1900, closed in the 1960 and some of the items from the creamery made their way back to the farm and will be sold on the Auction. The DeLaval cabinet with die-cut tin colored door is very nice. The large farmhouse is full of good country antiques and furniture. The Buick and Ford truck are in excellent 1 owner condition and always stored in the garage. All this along with the tractors, farm equipment & farm primitives will make an excellent Auction to attend. We will be running two auction rings right from the start at 10:00 AM.  For your convenience we will have off street field parking, lunch wagon and port-a-jon.


TERMS: Cash or good check day of Auction. We accept Master Card or VISA with a 3% service fee. We do subscribe to Check Alert Inc.
