Attended my first Van Meter Auction last Sunday. Everything was so orderly and clean. Things went right into my store and some sold within hours. It was great to see Mike there, afamiliar face from the west. Steve and Mike assisted in disassembling and showing us step by step how to set a grandfathers clock up again. When I told Mike I had a lifting restriction, he assisted. What a great auction house. Steve’s chant is very easy to listen to. It was a very fun auction and we are very proud of our new pieces in the store ——- Swan Antics, 1226 Second Street. Perry, IA
