This is just a sample of what you can expect at this important estate auction.

We are honored to present to you one of the most historically significant estate auctions that you will ever attend.

If your area of interest is antiques and collectibles, then without a doubt you must save the date!

Mrs. Fuller was an avid collector of antiques and collectibles who began her passion for collecting way back in the mid 1960’s. On occasion, Mrs. Fuller would display her finds at a local swap meet but like most dealers, it would not be unusual for her to leave the swap meet with more than what she sold.

Our auction crew worked diligently over a period of three weeks, packing and hauling 20 ft. trailers loaded with many ‘finds’ that have not seen the light of day in over thirty years!

If you have friends and/or relatives coming to town for Easter, treat them to an entertaining auction experience that they will never forget! 

We’ll be running multiple auction rings at this event so be prepared and bring lots of boxes- you’ll need them.

This is just a sample of what you can expect at this important estate auction.
