I know a lot of you have been to a convention that has a silent auction before, but just in case, I want to give you a quick note about how it works in our Art Room:
All silent auction bids are BINDING!
Be prepared to pay for ALL silent auctions won.
Never bid on a bunch of art and assume that someone will outbid you on some of them, unless you are ready and willing to pay for every single piece. We keep the bid increments in whole dollar amounts (no bid increases of a penny, nickel, dime, etc.).You can up the bid as much as you want ($1-$10 or more), but again, you WILL be expected to pay for all the silent auction items you win.
If a piece has a listed “Quick Sale” price and no one has bid on it, you can buy it outright at that price, but once the bidding starts, that price is null and void. If there are any pieces left on Sunday that have no bids, you can still purchase them at that Quick Sale price.
We accept cash, check AND credit/debit card. You will be expected to come to the Art Show room and pay for your art by the close of the room on Sunday (2:30). Those are the basics!
The full rules will be listed in your con Program Book, and the art room will always have someone at the staff table ready and willing to answer any questions you might have that aren’t covered. We’re here to help you and make your con experience fun! I hope to see all your smiling faces in our Art Room this year!
