LOCATION:  At the farm house, 5564 S. Maple Island Road Fremont, MI  49412 

DIRECTIONS: From Grand Rapids take I-96 West to the Nunica exit #10, north 27 miles on 112th / Maple Island Rd. Or west of Fremont 4 miles on M-82 to Maple Island Rd. south 1 mile. OR 1 ½ mile north of Brunswick or 8 miles south of Hesperia on Maple Island Rd. (west edge of Newaygo Co.)   

After a lifetime of collecting we are selling our large farm house and outbuildings and moving into Grand Rapids to a much, much smaller home.

Therefore, we have decided to commission Art Smith Auctioneers to hold an Auction to sell listed items at Public Auction. We are selling nearly everything we own and would appreciate you attending our Auction.

Thank you for your time, Mike & Baiba Fettig

AUCTIONEERS NOTE: Ladies and Gentlemen: Mike & Baiba have lived on this place for many, many years and have accumulated a vast array of interesting antiques & collectibles. Both of the outbuildings are full to the rafters and the attic & upstairs of the house are also full.

This will be a very large Auction running three rings most of the day. If you can't find what you want here, there"s something wrong! With the antiques, guns, excellent pontoon and speed boat along with the tools and primitives, this will be a most excellent country Auction to attend. There are many rare and hard to find items that will be sold. Make plans to be on Maple Island Rd. west of Fremont on Sat. May 7th for the start of this great Auction!!

TERMS: Cash or good check. Master Card or VISA with 3% service fee. Hand gun with permit or CCW.
