Annual Auction October 24th

Mark your calendar today for our upcoming auction on Sunday, October 24th. If you haven’t attended one of our auctions, you really should make an effort to come this year. With bargains galore, excellent food, and a room filled with cat lovers, the event is always fun, fun, fun! There is no pressure to buy, but few can resist the wonderful bargains and great opportunities to do a little holiday shopping.

We are most fortunate to have Bud and Annette Smith from Smith Auction Gallery running the live auction. They make bidding fun and easy for the novice auction attendee!
