New and Vintage Tool Auction




tools-for-auctionTickets are now on sale for the upcoming “Totally Tools” auction of vintage and new tools to be held at 7 p.m., Saturday, June 27 in the Saint Paul Lutheran School gymnasium, 18 S. School St., Mount Prospect.  The auction, along with a simultaneous tasting of local craft beers and a barbeque sampling, is sponsored by the Mount Prospect Historical Society.  Proceeds will help with the restoration of the 1896 Central School.

“Some fascinating old tools have been donated which collectors won’t want to miss,” said Chad Busse, chairman of the auction.  “They range from a hand plow used in gardening to hand drills, scythes, planes and even a snow rake that was used to clear snow from roofs.”

“Of course, we also have some wonderful new and gently-used tools for those who have a new home or need to supplement the tools they already have,” he continued.

Those who love to collect interesting tools from the past, as well as those who are in the market for some great new or gently-used tools, will want to stop by the museum at 101 S. Maple Street or go to our store to make a $10 per person reservation as soon as possible.  Tickets will also be sold at the door for those who make a last minute decision. 

The evening will feature tools sold via a live auction, as well as at cash and carry tables.  Tool aficionado Laura Luteri will be the auctioneer. 

Attendees will also be invited to taste craft beers brewed by Only Child Brewing Company in Gurnee ( as well as have a taste of barbeque sandwiches from T-Bob’s Smoked Bar-B-Q in Des Plaines.

Sponsors for the event are the Illinois Barbeque Society, T-Bob’s Smoked Bar-B-Q, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation, Only Child Brewing Company and Busse Automotive.
