ONTARIO – One place to find treasure in Treasure Valley is at a new locally owned family business in Ontario that specializes in auctioning consignment items. 

Whether you happen to be looking for a rare caponizing set used to castrate roosters, a baseball signed by the Oakland A’s from the 1970s, weathered post cards from the late 1800s, or an eclectic array of other beautiful and sometimes strange items, then Four Rivers Auction is a good place to start.  

The store is located at 1293 S.W. 4th Ave. in Ontario, and to bid or see what is currently up for auction, visit the store’s website at fourriversauction . . .
