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 three 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. The dates for the next 6 auctions are 11/11, 12/9, 1/20, 2/17, 3/16 and 4/20.
The OCTOBER Bid Board closes on Saturday, October 21st (10/21/23) starting at 2:00 PM. Please closely inspect the items that you bid on as there are no refunds. Bidders are responsible for checking to see if they have won an auction item and picking up their items within our 7-day window. Please check your email late Saturday or call the store Sunday after the auction.
Pickup for the October Bid Board runs from Sunday, October 22nd (10/22/23) to Saturday, October 28th (10/28/23). Pickup hours are Sunday 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM and Monday through Saturday 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM. All "no bid" items must be picked up by 12:00 PM on the Saturday following the auction. No bid furniture items not picked up will be assessed a $20 disposal fee.
PLEASE BRING PACKING SUPPLIES (boxes, bubble wrap, newspaper, etc) WITH YOU WHEN COMING TO PICK UP YOUR WINNINGS!
CURRENT AUCTION ITEMS
Registering a bidder number is simple, but there are some rules you must abide by as a bidder. On the day of the auction registering for a bidder number MUST be done prior to 1:30 p.m. To the right is a document containing all the rules you must follow in order to participate in our silent auction. If your bidder number is suspended, please refrain from bidding in the auctions unless you have been notified otherwise. If you have any questions about these rules, do not hesitate to call, email, or even stop in store to ask. If you do not receive an email and you would like to check the status of your bid after the auction, check your spam/junk mail folder or call us beginning the Sunday after the auction ends!
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. If your consignor number is suspended, please refrain from bringing items to consign in the auction unless you have been notified otherwise. For more details, see the bidder rules above.
Most months, the auction closes on the third Saturday of the month at 2:00 PM. 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.
