Hi, I was with my family a part owner in an antique/furniture/collectible store that has closed down. We also live in a expensive western suburb of Chicago and we are going to downsize and move. So I am selling everything from antique furniture to household items. At the present time the majority of our items will be auction style with the with the starting price being the lowest price we will except for the item and we will not have a reserve price. Large items will be for local pickup and almost all others will have free shipping in the continental USA. Thanks for looking, Chuck.
