Thursday Afternoon, May 23rd, 2013 starting at 2:00PM


LOCATION:  At the house # 13250 Algoma Ave. Cedar Springs, MI 49319


DIRECTIONS: US-131 north of Grand Rapids 17 miles or south of Big Rapids 35 miles to the Cedar Springs / M-46 WEST exit # 104, west 2 miles to Algoma Ave. then south 1 mile. OR east of Muskegon 31 miles on M-46 to Algoma Ave. and south 1 mile. (Kent Co.)


Due to the death of my husband, Russ Spanninga, I along with my son and daughter-in-law Gary and Jane Bekkering are selling our homes and moving to Florida. We have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to sell the following listed items at Live Public Auction at the place and time listed above. We invite all to attend our Thursday afternoon Auction and thank you in advance for your attendance.


Regards, Beatrice “Bee” Spanninga, Gary and Jane Bekkering


NOTE: Russ had an extensive cast iron toy collection, numbering over 200 pieces!

They were all displayed in custom display case and all will be selling. The Kubota tractor was purchased new by Russ in 1992, used very little (only 242 hours!) and always stored indoors. Combined with the 3pt equipment (always stored in the barn and like new), antiques, collectibles, shop and lawn tools will make this one nice afternoon Auction to attend. The homes on 12 Mile Road and Algoma Ave. will both be listed for sale thru ordinary listing in the weeks ahead if you are interested. Be sure to make plan to be on Algoma Ave. on Thursday afternoon, May 23 @ 2:00PM for the start of this most interesting Live Auction event.


For your convenience we will have port-a-jons, wash-up station and lunch wagon.


TERMS: Cash or good check day of Auction. Master Card or VISA with 3% service fee. We subscribe to Check Alert Inc. (A national check collection company.)
