Thursday afternoon, September 11th, 2014 @ 2:00 PM

LOCATION: On the farm at 15590 Peach Ridge Ave., Kent City, MI 49330

DIRECTIONS: From Grand Rapids take M-37 north 17 miles to Peach Ridge Ave. north 2 ½ miles. OR from Muskegon take M-46 east 24 miles to Peach Ridge Ave. (at Kent City) north 2 miles. OR from Newaygo take M-37 south 10 miles to Bailey Rd, (21 Mile Road) east 3 miles to Peach Ridge Ave. south 2 miles. (Kent Co.)

Having sold the farm and moved into a senior apartment, I have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction to sell the listed items. I invite you to come to my Thursday afternoon Auction and thank you in advance for your time.


Bud Afton

AUCTIONEERS NOTE:  Lloyd “Bud” Afton lived on this hobby farm for over 53 years. He enjoyed farming, hunting, fishing and the country life. He worked and retired from Sparta Foundry after 40 years of service. Due to age and health, he has moved into an apartment, therefore all of the tractors, truck, guns etc. will be sold at Live Public Auction. He purchased the Chevy truck new and always kept it in the garage with only 35,000 miles on it!! The Farmall A might need a little work, but the 404 and Super C are running and ready for you to take home.  Many interesting items from a lifetime of “Country Living”.

Make plans to be just north of Kent City on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 11 @ 2:00 PM for the start of this interesting live auction event.
