“MOM ALWAYS TOLD ME I had to grow up. I’m afraid I did not follow that advice,” said Robert Condray of Clyde, Kansas, who began buying, restoring and building custom farm toys more than 50 years ago. His collection includes remarkable custom built toys that he built—each one of a kind. In addition, he has rare cast iron pieces by Vindex, Wilkin’s & Arcade, 40-plus pedal tractors, rare farm toys, construction and pressed steel, which has been displayed in a 3,200 square foot barn sitting behind his home.
However, Robert has now decided the time is right to sell his collection. Girard Auctions of Wakonda, South Dakota is planning a series of auctions, kicking off with “the best of the best” of the collection on January 12-13, 2018 at the Girard Auction Facilities in Wakonda, South Dakota. For more information on that auction, see girardauction.com or call Girard Auction at 605-267-2421.
