Saturday's in-person auction preview will be 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and will include a SIDEWALK SALE where you can buy random items that didn't make it into the auction, household items, etc. Cash and carry, like an estate sale. We will have several good items in the Sidewalk Sale this week: household items, useful kitchenware, some like-new products, collectibles, etc., come see! Location: at the auction house, 625 Tamiami Trail N, Park Isles Plaza Shopping Center, in Nokomis FL.
*** Notes about the gemstones this week: We have been commissioned to sell several lots of gemstones that were "rescued" from broken gold jewelry, and other jewelry that was sold for its precious metal value. Since we are not gemologists, we can't identify these stones with certainty. Everyone is very welcome to come to preview to see them all, Sat., 10:00-5:00.
All bidding is online on this website. Items are here at our local auction house in Nokomis, FL.
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 an alternative. To choose shipping, please pay your invoice online and click the "Notify Auction Company for Shipping" (a big red button) and we will get back with you to collect shipping costs once everything is packed. Shipping on small items (coins, jewelry, simple things) 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). We do try to keep it as economical as possible. If you need assistance with shipping questions, feel free to call, 941-544-8640.
If you are picking up in person, you may pay with cash or check or card at that time. Cash or check payment saves 3% on the buyer's premium.
LIVE AUCTION STYLE BIDDING:
Expect a fast paced auction! Auctions extend by 15 seconds if bids are placed in the last 15 seconds. No lots sell out of order. Items that are counting down 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.
