As stated above, this collection will be transported to the K of C Hall which is located near the west edge of Mt. Sterling, IL along the north side of Hwy. 24. As Sullivan Auctioneers, LLC has rented this facility for 3 days, all items will need to be removed on sale day, Saturday, August 17, 2013.
Brief sale order: 9:00 A.M., large quantity of collectibles. 11:00 A.M., model T touring car, '68 Mercury Cougar, Buddy L yard train, followed by antique furniture. We will then continue selling collectibles before concluding the auction with miscellaneous household, tools, garage items, etc. As always, come early as we will not save the best for last!
