    I have a 20 foot hoophouse (high tunnel) metal frame for
    Auction. I payed $100 for it 20 years ago. It is probably worth more now. Purchaser needs to disassemble and transport. I can help some.


  • David Gottlieb

    Would like to donate two framed paintings for auction. Can a pick-up be provided? Is there a drop-off near Wurtsboro or Monticello?
