Having retired, we have sold our county home of 35 years and are moving into a senior mobile home park, therefore we have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction at our home. We would appreciate you considering attending our Auction and thank you in advance for your time.

Very best regards, John & Phyllis Muir

AUCTIONEERS NOTE: John worked as an auto mechanic and farm equipment repair man for nearly 45 years. He owned and operated Muir Motors in Newaygo for over 25 years and also did a lot of auto repairs here in his garage. Phyllis is an avid quilter and embroiderer. The household items are from a beautiful home and are all well cared for. The shop tools, guns, tractors, lawn tools etc. have always been stored and never left outside. You will want to make plans to be just 2 miles west of Grant on Sat. Dec. 28 at 10:00 AM for the start of this very nice Auction event. Dress for the weather as some will be outside or undercover in unheated pole barn. We will have everything ready for your inspection by 9:00 morning of the Auction.
