John Kruesel's General Merchandise and Auction Company is not your average antique shop. John Kruesel has been collecting Rochester history for decades and many of his pieces date back to the horse-and-buggy days of Doctors Mayo. Some of his collection is on display but most is hidden in storage. Of the things on display, most are for sale but some are not. It all depends on whether or not John likes you and believes you will make a good steward of the past.
