Terms & Conditions

Payment Policy: Payment info (credit card) is required to bid on auction items. You won't be charged unless you win an item or make a purchase. The winning bidder of an item will be invoiced, and their credit card on file will be automatically charged. We accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. If a credit card is declined, we will notify the winning bidder via email and ask them to update their credit card information. Credit cards are charged nightly.

Extending Bidding is turned on for this auction. Suppose an item receives a bid in the last 60 seconds of being open for bidding. In that case, the auction will automatically be extended an extra 60 seconds to allow other bidders the opportunity to place a follow-up bid. This extension will repeat if bids are still being placed on the item. 

The following shipping and pick-up policies apply for this year’s Auction.

Shipping Policy: Please ensure your mailing address is current and correct in your account before bidding. All gift certificates and gift cards will be mailed unless stated otherwise.
