Also our neighbor Sharyn Wilson has sold her farm home and is moving into a smaller house. She had some nice antiques, collectibles & oak furniture to sell and will bringing her items here to be sold. There will be some items from another person or two that must be sold also.

We invite everyone to attend our auction here on the farm and thank each of you in advance for your time and attendance.


Very best regards, Maynard & Imogene Klein.
