We hope you will keep an eye on our up-coming auctions. Due to our personal loss of more than $10,000 retail at Artichoke Annie's Antique Mall in Columbia, MO, we moved all of our quality merchandise out of 5 showcases. We have had NO support from law enforcement, even though the thief is clearly shown on tape as being in the Mall for more than 2 hours during “open hours” & helping himself to coins in our showcase at least 12 different times !!! The situation is forcing us to sell off our inventory on Ebay at bargain prices.
