After many years of operating an antique store at this location, David Nestander has moved to a new home and no longer has need for this two story commercial building. This would be a great opportunity for a small business start-up or handy man to restore and re-sell or lease this building in a highly visible location on US Highway 34. We will also sell the remaining antique inventory, including a large collection of reed organs. Make plans to attend this unique auction!
