Thank you in advance for your time and attendance.

NOTE: Folks Bob & Jalene have enjoyed attending Auctions and antique markets all over Michigan, looking for the odd and unusual. They have accumulated a vast array of interesting items for your bidding enjoyment. Plus, the tractor and cargo trailer are in good shape. Come out for a very interesting live on-site Public Auction Thursday afternoon, out in the country! We will have a lunch wagon, port-a-jon and wash up station for your convenience.
