Rod Howell's Liquidation of Carriages, Sleighs & Harness Sale
Rodney Howell has been move to a memory care in a facility in Wayzata, MN. Jill, is Rod’s daughter, and she would really like to clear out everything she can. The club's help would be great. Biggest thing right now is there are a number of wagon components such as harnesses that are too many to take pictures of that could go quickly if you know anyone of your members needing to increase their inventory. Prices are very negotiable. All of the money that we are collecting will be going to Jill to help with Rodney’s care.
My family spent the weekend removing 7 wagons and 3 sleighs plus horse tack and many other items from the pole shed where they were stored. They have been cleaned up and are now being stored in my barn in Corcoran, MN. I have contacted a wagon restoration company in Mitchell, S.D. They are waiting for pictures before they will make an offer. Jill would rather keep them local and sell them to someone that would appreciate them.
All of my family's time is donated. I really do not want to get into shipping and all things related to getting things to a new home.
You may forward this e-mail to other clubs and your club members. Jill is using me for the contact on all of this.
My phone number is 612-309-1885. Any help would be great. Thanks again in advance.
