    I've got to ask about the stacked pottery heads. What are they? Mr. Deyoe had a very good eye for the unusual! I also see a couple of old robots (my son collects robots).

    The pottery was john's done in the 60s. We thought there was a limited amount but we keep finding more.

    This is according to Brad in the thread about this man's estate.

    Next up for us is a private sale of Local history and University of Illinois memorabilia. This will be held the evening of Jan. 20th. Names were taken during this sale for anyone who wanted an invitation. We took about 40 names. This sale will also be posted to facebook groups for local history and U of I memorabilia collectors for invitation.
    Also up will be a private postcard sale with dates to be determined. Names were also collected for this during the recent sale. I think we collected less than 10 but have some others we can invite.

    Our 4th general sale will be Feb. 7-9. We have already unpacked and sorted the majority of the material for this sale and start staging this week. This sale is expected to be the largest yet, with a new large room added to the floor space for the sale.

    Next general unpacking day will be Jan. 17th. There are still hundreds of boxes to unpack (500 or more) so we still have a long way to go. material continues to be sent to regional auction houses and to ebay. The lease ends on our building at the end of March so we really have to get this done in a timely manner.
