Pickup: Wednesday, May 15th from 4PM-6PM
Joyce Welshans and her late husband, William "Bill" have been collecting since the 1960s and always had a love for things like banks, salt and pepper shakers -- and especially Joyce who loved Rudolph the Red Nose reindeer. In their early days they operated "Past Time Antiques" in Wakefield, Kansas, but were also regular attendees to Flea markets in Hutchinson and Wichita almost every time they occurred. Additionally they frequented numerous antique shops throughout central Kansas enjoying finding historic items that reminded them of their childhood and days gone by.
This is the first of many auctions! Items include square oak & walnut tables, oak office chairs, numerous old sewing machines, white porcelain cabinet, plus much more. Stay tuned for additional auctions within the next several weeks (and months).
