We invite all to attend our Auction and thank you in advance for taking the time to come out and be a part of this event.

Very best regards,

Gary and Sharon DeLange

AUCTIONEERS NOTE: This will be your opportunity to purchase many unique items at your price! Gary has been in business 36 years. The knife collections and other collectibles in Gary's shop that many of you have seen over the years will all be sold. Gary had a complete archery shop with all the equipment to set up bows and make arrows. A very nice selection of MARBLES knives, hatchets, match keepers and compasses will be worth your special attention. Some nice Indian artifacts, Case XX & Remington knives and hunting accessories make for an interesting Public Auction. Gary, no longer holding a FFL, will be selling his private collection at this Auction including over 50 firearms. Handgun buyers must have CCW or purchase permit.

Sharon furnished the house with very nice modern furniture, antiques and a large collection of high-end Christmas decorations. Some very nice collectible glassware and antique furniture will make this Auction very interesting.

TERMS: Cash or good check day of Auction. Master Card or VISA with 3% service fee. Hand guns need CCW or purchase permit. Not responsible for accidents or items once sold.

NO PARKING ON SPARTA AVE. (STATE ST.) Lots of parking on side streets.

Inspection & pre-registration will be Friday afternoon, March 29th 4;00PM-6:00PM.
