Since this is an especially large and important sale, we are extending our usual hours for both Saturday and Sunday. Arrivals can be as early as 7:00 AM both days for parking and to get numbered tickets for first come/first served entrance to sale at 9:00 AM. We do have plenty of parking area and we will have sheriff’s deputies to facilitate entrance and exit from the property. However, we strongly recommend carpooling since the site is accessed by a ½ mile single-lane driveway.
We will have food, seating, and other much-needed conveniences on site. If you come early or anytime throughout the two days, there will be great things to buy.
We look forward to seeing you.
