Silent Auction / Bid Board
Welcome to Cottage Antiques Silent Auction!
A new collection of antiques, collectibles, unusual and useful objects of every kind and description are displayed in the Silent Auction area (at the rear of the store) each month.
These Auction items are displayed for two weeks prior to closing day, usually the third Saturday of the month. During that time, registered bidders may come in as often as they like to check or increase their bids.
Registering a bidder number is simple, but there are some rules you must abide by as a bidder. Attached to the right is a document containing all the rules you must follow in order to participate in our silent auction. If you have any questions about these rules, do not hesitate to call, email, or even stop in store to ask.
Interested in becoming a consigner? Consigners can enter items into the auction and be paid for sold items. You have a decent amount of control over your item, including the ability to set a minimum price and/or "Buy it now" price. Cottage Antiques will accept most items for consignment as long as they are not broken, don't have an odor, stains, or tears, and are not offensive or inappropriate. Cottage Antiques reserves the right to reject any item deemed unfit, even if they do not fall under these guidelines. For more details, see the bidder rules above.
Most months, the auction closes on the third Saturday of the month at 2PM. The second Sunday after closing is when it reopens for the next month. Pickup for winnings begins the first Sunday after the auction and all winnings MUST be picked up OR paid for over the phone BEFORE the following Sunday otherwise they will be relisted in the next auction or donated and your bidder number may be suspended. For more information including pickup times, penalty fees, pickup location, and more, see the bidder rules.
