Social Distancing Info: If you are staying home, we are happy to arrange shipping for your items after the auction (more info below). Or, if you need to delay picking up, please let us know on Monday. Communication really helps as we settle up the auction afterward.
Preview in person at the auction house on Saturday, 3/28, from 1:00-5:00 pm. It should be easy to remain 6 ft apart during preview. Or, if you can't come but need to ask questions about an item, feel free to call, 941-544-8640.
During pickup on Monday (10am - 6 pm) we ask you to wait outside the door if there are more than 10 people in the building. Usually, there are fewer than this anyway, even during normal circumstances. We will do everything we can with safety in mind, thank you for your help too!
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.
