Small or grouped items should be securely packaged in plastic and/or securely attached to each other to form one item. Small short rolls of shrink wrap work well and can be purchased at local hardware stores.  Try to arrange items so all parts can easily be seen by the bidders. Small items must be placed in a zip lock bag and must be stapled shut.
  11. Pricing Your Items – Two prices are required for each item: “MINIMUM AUCTION PRICE” and “STARTING BID/BUY IT NOW PRICE”.
    a. MINIMUM PRICE –all items for sale must list a MINIMUM price, no lower than $25. The MINIMUM should be set to the lowest price that the Seller is willing to accept during the auction event. When the item goes up on stage for auction, no item will be sold for less than the minimum specified – without the seller’s approval. It may be necessary to contact you during the auction, so be sure to list your cell number on your CUSTOMER FORM. (If pre-registering, the online form is your Customer Form). If there are no offers of at least, the specified minimum bid the item will be sent to a PASS Table (Pass Table explained below).
    b. STARTING BID/BUY-IT-NOW PRICE– NEW THIS YEAR! – all items for sale must list a Starting Bid/Buy-It-Now price, allowing all items for sale to be eligible in the silent auction or purchased before going to the auction block. The STARTING BID/BUY-IT-NOW price is set above the minimum and is set at a level that the Seller feels the item will sell at: 1) as a starting bid at the silent auction or 2) prior to the live auction. This allows those buyers the opportunity to acquire an item that the seller feels is a fair price. STARTING BID/BUY-IT-NOW prices may not be added or changed after an item has been checked in. There is no limit to the number of items that can be purchased at any one time at the “BUY-IT-NOW” price after the Silent Auction.
