Tom & Katie Kusmierski Moving Auction!


Saturday, December 2nd 2017 @ 10:00AM

LOCATION: at the house #9873 Falcon Trail, Howard City, MI 49329

DIRECTIONS: North of Grand Rapids 30 miles or South of Big Rapids 19 miles on US-131 to the M-46 East exit #120, East 1 ½ miles to Reed Rd., North ¼ mile to Timberland Dr., West ¼ mile to Blackhawk Trail, North & West ¼ mile to Falcon Trail then North to 9873 Falcon Trail. Watch for directional signs! (Montcalm Co.)

After nearly 50 years in the furniture building trade, we have retired, sold our home and are moving south. Therefore we have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction here at the house to sell to the highest bidder our personal property, fishing boat, guns, truck, motorcycle, household items, lawn equipment, quilting & crafting items and our complete 40’X60’ heated woodworking shop full of power tools. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our Sat. morning Auction and thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

Very best regards, Tom & Katie Kusmierski

NOTE: Tom worked at Stow-Davis, John Widdicomb, Mueller, and was President of R.T. London furniture companies before he started, owned and operated Mier Woodworking. After retiring he & Katie set up their home wood working shop and continued building quality hand crafted furniture, some of which are in the Auction. Katie has been quilting and crafting for many years and much of her crafting material and equipment will also be in the Auction. Tom & Katie have enjoyed the country lifestyle hunting, fishing and spending time outdoors and now are looking forward to spending winters in Florida. Make plans to be just North-East of Howard City on Sat. Dec. 2 at 10AM for the start of this nice clean Live Public Auction.

For your convenience we will have a lunch wagon, port-a-jon, wash-up station and the insulated pole barn will be heated!!
