For Your Information ...
Get to the preview and check everything out thoroughly.
When you buy at auction, everything is sold as-is, so make sure to check everything out first. It is to your advantage to preview.
If you can't make it to the auction, leave an absentee bid.
With an absentee bid, you have less flexibility in your bidding. You can't go higher than your limit, but for those who are unable to attend, the absentee bid is the way to go.
What to expect at an auction.
Auctions are a very unique environment that allow you to compete against other bidders, and set your price when buying. At auctions you decide when, and where you want to stop bidding. That is what makes auctions so fun, you may get that super deal you have been looking for, and you may see some unusual items to add to your décor. If you have never been to an auction you really should try it at least once, you will have a great time. The auction format is simple. Register with the clerk to receive a bid number, once the auction begins the auctioneer will call out the prices in increments, raise your card and display your number if you want to bid. The last bid wins; it's that simple. We look forward to seeing you at the auction!

Restroom facilities- If needed.
Auction vs. Yard Sale
At yard sales the buyers are trying to get you to reduce your prices. People bid against each other to get you the best price for your merchandise. You will receive an itemized list when the sale is settled.
Auction items can come from anywhere.
Many of the items we auction come from estates, collections, people who are moving, people who need more space, and people who need to liquidate. We like to sell items that are desirable, that will get people jazzed and excited. Unfortunately, there is a fine line between a collectible or antique and run of the mill merchandise. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
