NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio – Snow, blustery winds and cold temperatures didn’t deter over 100 bidders from attending an outdoor auction held Nov. 23 by auctioneers Ralph Sitko and Mike Dinse.

The house on Albion Road in North Royalton, Ohio, had been occupied by the same family for nearly 50 years and contained some unusual items.

Included in the 500+ lots sold by Sitko/Dinse and apprentice Mel Sobieski were: 1940 Coke tray for $110; 1948 Indians pennant, $100; Transoceanic radio, $120; coffee mill, $95; arcade toy bowling game, $95; Bakelite Jewelry, $45-$65; Box of Christmas decorations, $175; student accordion, $85; Box lots of fabrics, $40-80; McCoy bookend planters, $65; Roy Rogers notebook, $30; cast iron cauldron, $75; and an oak china cabinet, $350.

Perhaps the most practical buy on that cold morning were the wool blankets that sold for $4 each.
