Selling mostly antiques & collectibles this week. Most items are from a local estate in Venice, FL. We will continue to add to this auction throughout the week (Tues/Wed/Thurs). Don't miss the nice violin, if you know someone who might be interested. Hope you find some treasures!
Thank you for your participation in the auction. All bidding is online. Items are here at our local auction house in Nokomis, FL. You may preview on Saturday afternoon 1:00-5:00 before final bidding on Sunday night.
Items must be picked up on Monday, 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. If for any reason you cannot pick up during this time, please contact us on Monday to arrange shipping or an alternative. If you are picking up in person, you may pay with cash or check at that time (which also saves 3% on the buyer's premium).
Shipping on small items (coins, jewelry) that can fit in a padded envelope or Priority Mail box can be handled from the auction house. Large, complicated, and fragile items can be handled through a local professional pack-and-ship store (which can be pricey, be aware).
LIVE AUCTION STYLE:
Fast paced auction! Auctions extend by 15 seconds if bids are placed in the last 15 seconds. No lots sell out of order. An item that counts down to zero while the previous item is still receiving bids will be extended also. An item's ending time could extend by seconds or even minutes if previous items in line are extended. The clock shows the *minimum* amount of time left before the item sells.
We encourage early proxy bidding, especially until this system is familiar to you. Remember, your bid won't be placed until you confirm it on the pop-up screen, and this may take extra time when seconds become critical. Also, if your computer gives you the "spinning wheel" (delay) during bidding you will miss out. Just like if the auctioneer says sold at the live auction and a bid comes in late, it is over. Bid early for items that are important to you.
For those of you who like the fast-paced last-second bidding with the "Quick Bid" button, have fun! We appreciate your bids and buys, and everyone's support. Good luck to all!
* You may place an early bid on this Introduction page for "practice" if you'd like; all bids on this "Welcome" lot will be disregarded and/or deleted.
