Event a farewell to former dealership

BATAVIA – An Avenue Motors estate-related sale by the Clark family supporting the Batavia Depot Museum Expansion Project is planned from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 13 at the former dealership on Randall Road in Batavia.

The Batavia Historical Society has teamed up with the Clark family, who owned the car dealership for three generations, a news release announced. The sale will offer vintage furniture, glassware, china, linens, toys, games, handcrafted items, craft supplies, frames, framed prints, light fixtures, bathroom accessories and kitchen objects.

A 4 p.m. auction of Batavia memorabilia also is planned, followed by a 5 p.m. salute to the Clark family who ran the dealership from 1930 to 2011. The event is a final farewell to the building at Randall Road and McKee Street.

The estate sale will donate half of the proceeds to the Batavia Depot Expansion Project, according to organizers, who note: "John Clark has set out a wonderful display of dealership and town memorabilia."
