Collectors eager to grab a piece of Cedar County history

Auctioneer Ryan Creamer accepts a bid, while his son, Austin, displays an item for bidders to see at Saturday’s Globe Clothing Store auction.

HARTINGTON — Hartington history was on display here Saturday at the Skylon Ballroom.
Collectors of all kinds flocked to the Skylon to check out an auction that included vestiges of Hartington’s oldest business — The Globe Clothing Store.
From an interesting life-sized Mike Tyson statue to extra coat hangers, there seemed to be something for everyone.
The auction also featured pieces from the Rusty Mustang in Yankton, and the Schroeder farm outside of Hartington.
The auction was handled by Creamer Heimes Janssen Auctioneers & Appraisers, and they spent five days prepping the Skylon Ballroom, putting everything out on display.
“The advertising and display kind of go hand in hand with how important they are,” said auctioneer Ryan Creamer. “The advertising brings the people in, but the display helps everyone know what is here so we can get more people to stay and bid.”
There were over 200 bid cards handed out, and just shy of 1,000 lots were auctioned off in just six hours.
