Having moved into an apartment, I have decided to sell, at Public Auction, all items listed at the farm, time and directions located above. I would appreciate your considering attending my Auction. Thank you, Charles Ray Fessenden


TERMS: Cash or good check. We subscribe to CHECK ALERT INC. Master Card & VISA with 3% service fee.


AUCTIONEERS NOTE: This farm has been in the family for 5 generations. Mr. Fessenden had a passion for Mod. T’s and there are many parts stored in the sheds for years!! The 1930 Reo “Speedwagon” is very restorable and has always been stored indoors.  Many interesting items from the past found in the outbuildings and huge old barn. This will be a most interesting country Auction to attend. For your convenience we will have a port-a-jon and lunch wagon. Make plans to be on Nugent Ave. on the 17th of May at 10AM for the start of this auction. Free drawing for “American Farm Collectibles” Volume 2 @ 10:00AM!
