To place a bid, click to view the item you’re interested in, then click on “Leave a Comment” or “Leave a Reply” and enter the dollar amount you wish to bid. The first time you do this you will be asked for your name and email address. This is how you will be contacted if you win (emails are hidden from public view). You do not need to leave any other information in the Comment, just your bid amount, for example “$200.” You need to keep posting comments to increase your bid; it doesn’t happen automatically.

If you are the winner of an item, you will be contacted to arrange payment and receipt of your new prize. Please make payments by cash or check only. Local pick-up or delivery only; items cannot be shipped.
