Having decided to move to Costa Rica for mission work with Tactica Missions, we have sold our home and have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction and sell almost everything we own! We would like to thank our “sending church” Calvary Baptist Church of Greenville for the opportunity to serve on the mission field. We would also like to invite everyone to participate in our Auction and thank you in advance for your consideration.


Very best regards, Rick & Sherry Rought


AUCTIONEERS NOTE:  Due to no parking at the Rought’s home in Gowen and due to the fact the new owners have taken possession of the house, we have moved everything to their property just north of White Cloud. Sherry was an avid antique collector and there are 100’s of items of interest to the collector with many unusual items to be unpacked. Rick was into construction and was an outdoorsman, hunter, trapper and fisherman. The items have been packed floor to ceiling in the buildings in anticipation of their move and I promise you there will be many surprises as we were unable to see most of the items!! Come on out for a great country Auction! Selling two rings right from the start @ 10:00AM. We have one order from Rick & Sherry, SELL IT ALL!!


TERMS: Cash or good check day of Auction. MasterCard or VISA with 3% service fee. We subscribe to Check Alert Inc. Nothing removed until settled for. Not responsible to accidents or items once sold.
