AUCTIONEER’S NOTE:

The silent auction website has a “dynamic ending” feature; if someone “sniper bids” on a lot at the scheduled end of the auction, the system will extend the clock  two minutes to give everyone time to bid again. Get in on the fun! Auctions are the best way to buy good quality items “cheaper than new.”


It ain’t over til it’s over – Auctions are the only game in which you have to come in last to win! Remember to frequently refresh your screen to see if you have been outbid!!
