Mr Paul Hoffman, owner/proprietor of Sacandaga Rustic Designs, at the age of 66 and facing serious health problems as a result of a recent motor vehicle accident has put his lovely lakeside home & adja-cent business on the market and has commissioned us to sell the complete contents of his Rustic Gal-lery as well as much of his personal taxidermy collection.
AND in a case of serendipitous timing, Mr Frank Kineke – lifetime member of The Safari Club Inter-national & Certified Master Measurer – also contacted us to sell his taxidermy as he too is downsizing to much smaller quarters. Many of Mr Kineke’s animals were awarded Gold & Silver Medals by Safari Club International.
We have moved Mr Kineke’s mounts to Mr Hoffman’s location combining them to make a truly special sale of Taxidermy. MANY SMALLER MOUNTS to incl: foxes, bobcat, pine martin, otter, coyote, bea-ver, raccoons, boar’s heads, birds, fish, humorous squirrels, porcupine, armadillo, white-tail & mule deer, pheasants, etal.
SALE LOCATION ~ Sale held on site at the “Sacandaga Rustic Designs Gallery”, which is located on the North Shore Road (County Rte 4) of the Great Sacandage Lake in the southern Adirondack Moun-tains. Approximately 25 miles west of Lake George, NY, which is Exit 21 of the Adirondack Northway (I87), about 1 1/2 hours northwest of Albany. ACTUAL ADDRESS is 11 Flansburg Lane, Hadley, NY 12835
