Monday Afternoon, July 25th, 2016 @ 2:00PM

LOCATION: 1276 12 Mile Road, Sparta, MI 49345

DIRECTIONS:  From Grand Rapids, take M-37 North 9 miles to 12 Mile Rd, East 1 mile OR from Muskegon take M-46 east 23 miles to M-37 (at Kent City) South on M-37  6 miles to 12 Mile Rd, East 1 mile. (Kent Co.)

SPECIAL NOTE: No parking on 12 Mile Rd at the address. Lots of parking across the street at the Sparta School Sports Complex. (Watch for signs.)

Due to the death of my husband Mark N. Doren, I will be moving to Florida this fall, therefore I have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Auction here at the house to sell the items listed. I would appreciate you considering attending my Monday afternoon Auction and would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your time.

Very best regards, Marilyn Doren

NOTE: Marilyn will be moving to Florida to be nearer to family. The real estate will be listed at a later date. All items on this Auction are very clean and well cared for. Mark owned and operated Markson Tool & Manufacturing in Sparta for over 30 years and this explains the large amount of quality tool & die tools and equipment.

The John Deere tractor has seen little use and the furniture is of top quality and nearly new, worth your special attention. Some nice antiques & collectibles from past generations are also included in this Public Auction. Make plans to be on 12 Mile Road between Alpine Ave. and Sparta Ave. on Monday afternoon July 25 @ 2:00PM for the start of this most interesting two ring Public Auction.

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

TERMS: Cash or good check day of auction. Master Card or VISA with 3% service fee. WE SUBSCRIBE TO PAY-TEC, A NATIONAL CHECK COLLECTION COMPANY.)
