How does the auction work?

Whenever we run an auction, the items up for grabs are on the Auctions page. Auctions that are currently running will have a Bid Now button. Click the image or the button to see the item being auctioned. Clicking Bid Now does not require you to bid, nor does it place a bid on your behalf.

  1. You will need to register to place a bid. If you have already registered on the site, you will need to log in.
  2. You can now place a bid or buy the item. Often the buy now price is lower than the regular price so you will be saving money if you buy it before the auction ends.
  3. If you place a bid you be notified if someone makes a higher bid. You have an option to increase your bid, if you wish. You can log in anytime to see if yours is the current winning bid.
  4. The auction will show how many days, hours and minutes are remaining in the auction. At  the end of the auction, if the item has not been bought outright, the winner will be notified.
  5. We may place a reserve amount on an auction item. If the reserve is not met, we have the option of disqualifying the highest bid. We do have costs involved in stocking an item and if we don’t cover our costs, we may have to pull the item.
  6. If your bid wins the item, we will hold it for 7 days in order for you, the winner, to make a payment, notices will be sent by email, but if payment is not received within 7 days, the item may be returned to inventory or placed back into the auction.
  7. Free shipping for winning bid over $35 when using code: auction at checkout. Winning bids over $75 will automatically get free shipping.
  8. Auctions must be conducted online. We cannot take bids over the phone. If you don’t have email, you can’t register and won’t get any notifications. You really should have email, its 2015. I hate email too, so call us if you want to make a non-auction purchase – 607-354-4959.
  9. We trust buyers will be serious and not place bids they can’t complete. Help us make this auction successful by paying for any items you win. Anyway, you are already a winner in our book, just for getting this far down the page!

Please contact us if you have any questions or have difficulty working with the auction.
