IMPORTANT NOTE: Ms. Gray, from a noted Kalamazoo family, collected “Real Antiques” during most of her lifetime. Everything in this sale was in her home and not a single piece has been added. (As a matter of fact, some items were removed for an important auction in the fall.) Parking is extremely limited and the driveway is blocked off except for walking traffic and permitted loading. We intend to have some golf carts available for the most needy and the return to cars with purchases. Expect waits and be patient please. (The wait will be worth it.)
