AUCTIONS - HOW TO BID
Never been to an auction before? No problem. The bidding process is easy!
First, bidders must register with the auction at the registration desk. There is a $5 registration fee and you need to present a valid driver's license or state-issued ID card. You are then given a bid card, which allows you to bid on any items you like. Sale items are presented one at a time with a short description of the piece. The auctioneer will start by looking for a bid in the lower range of the price scale. If you feel the price is reasonable and desire the item, you simply raise the card you were given at registration. Of course, anyone else is allowed to bid higher than you if they also desire a piece, but you are free to do the same. The bidder is responsible for knowing which item he is bidding on. If unsure, he should inquire, or not bid.
All sales are final so it is strongly recommended that you closely examine any items you are interested in before bidding. If we are aware that a piece has damage, we will bring it to your attention, but if we are unaware, obviously we can't. For your own protection we recommend you perform your own examination.
