I think this is absolutely wonderful. What a wonderful opportunity to see so many dolls of this caliber. I have had many dealings with Geneva Mulder in the past and anything I purchased from her was simply wonderful and amazing. This was something her and her husband did together and they enjoyed it. She is missed.

Can't wait to be there at the sale.

Do you all not have anything better to do than be negative about this? Please, get a life and quit bitching about what is news "worthy" or deserves free publicity. Those that enjoy antiques, enjoy the sale!

Once again, WOOD TV8 doing a crack job of reporting. This is NOT an auction--nothing is 'up for bid'. It is a priced estate sale--everything is tagged, with a price--if you want to pay it, you can buy it. First come, first served. There are no 'bidders numbers'--only entrance numbers which determine the order in which people will enter the sale. People were in line as of yesterday(Tuesday). Those in the first groups to enter will be able to buy anything/everything they want at the set prices. AGain--there is no bidding, it is NOT an auction. You would think that after being in the sale location, interviewing the Estate Service conducting the sale, and looking at the items for sale they would have somehow absorbed these facts. DUH.

Wow--you must have really been outraged when the new Meijer store opened--think of the print and television free advertising they got. Bet you stewed all day over your cup of coffee at Russ'.

How could you live in a house with this much STUFF. I'm not into clutter so I say to her family good luck with the sale and hopefully you won't have to bring anything home again..

From one of the responses (if you had actually read) you'd see that she and her husband were dealers. It wasn't "clutter" to them!

I have heard from several others that the very best of this estate was sold off to a couple of local collectors/dealers last year. If this is whats left, can you imagine what was there originally? Amazing.

I am 100% sure not all of it was in their house--they had garages, storage building, etc. However, imagine everything you own, pulled out of closets, drawers, etc. and laid out on tables. You'd be shocked at how much it would look like. Take that 'normal' day to day stuff and then add a lifetime of collecting and the inventory of a business to it. LOTS of stuff.

Everyone has different opinions of what is news. If you don't have an interest in antiques then don't read about it. Do you have nothing better to do in your life? Obviously not. Many people love and appreciate antiques and this collection is nothing short of amazing. If I wasn't working I'd be there not necessarily to buy, but just to see it all. If everyone had the same interests and opinions wouldn't life be boring? I think it's nice to read about something other than a killing, accident, robbery, drug bust, etc.(and I don't mean that those aren't very important articles so don't twist what I'm saying)

I had the privilege of living near the Mulder family in Hudsonville during my childhood. They are an exceptional family that LOVED antiques. Their house and garage were busting at the seams with antiques. My younger sister and I always loved to stop over and look at all of Mrs. Mulder's lovely dolls. I wish the Mulder family all the best with their sale!

They were dealers, but their house was filled to the brim with narrow paths. I've been there.

Geneva Mulder was a very nice, honest, interesting lady. I miss visiting her and her home full of beautiful antiques. Especially, her dolls,they meant a lot to her. She was such a wonderful person!! I hope she is enjoying heaven and the many wonders of God. Vicki
