Auctioneer’s Note: Al & Ann lived in the Weldon Springs area from the 1970’s to 1991 and became prolific collectors of good quality antiques and primitives from St. Charles County and beyond. They retired to a log house in Northern Minnesota, where the collecting bug didn’t go away. Allan passed away in 2016, which eventually lead to Ann’s return to the area and the collection came home with her. She has recently passed, so we have been commissioned by their son, Mark, and the family to liquidate the following collection. See you at the sale, David, Dusty & Bill
