Now Offering Phone Bidding!
The Fun Auction will now be offering phone bidding for those interested in supporting the national show, but unable to attend the Spring Sale. We’re excited to announce this new addition and hope those far away will now be able to join in on the fun!
HOW IT WORKS:
If you’re interested in phone bidding, please contact Lisa Schott (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than May 19th and provide your phone number and a list of items on which you’d like to bid (see list below). On the day of the sale, when your chosen item is up for bidding, a volunteer will call you at your specified number to take your live phone bids. If you do not answer, the volunteer will make one more immediate attempt to reach you, but due to the nature of auctions, if you are not available to take the call, you’ll forfeit any ability to bid on the item. If you’ve indicated interest in multiple items, a volunteer will still try to reach you for any future items when they reach the auction block.
You must be prepared to pay for your items immediately with a credit card, and final bids will also be subject to a 3% office processing fee. Additionally, you’ll be responsible for all shipping costs, or arranging your own transportation or pick up. Items available for shipping will be noted as such on the item list, with flat-rate postage cost listed. Please secure a pick-up person prior to bidding on large items! You may also elect to find transportation for small items and not pay for shipping.
