Right to Refuse

The Carriage Auction's goal is to create a good, clean environment for families, bidders, consignors, and our community volunteers. We ask that vendors and consignors respect this environment and refrain from offering items that are discriminatory, degrading, racial, or drug- and alcohol-related. The Committee reserves the right to refuse any consignors, vendors, or items that do not meet these guidelines or are otherwise deemed unacceptable. We consider attendees and vendors to be our Guests for the day on our auction grounds.


Misrepresentation of an item (i.e. presenting a reproduction as an antique) is not acceptable.  Please help us run a clean, honest auction!
