This is different than most auctions, as there will not be a live audience during the actual bidding process. All bids will be from left bids, phone bids and Internet bidding through the www.Proxibid.com interactive auction system. You will actually hear the voice of the auctioneer prompting you to continue to bid online. The catalog will appear on proxibid.com with pictures and descriptions prior to the live preview, and Internet bidders will be able to bid in real time with one click bidding.
There will be a live, in-person preview on Friday Feb. 10 from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday Feb. 11 from noon until 6:00 p.m. where interested parties can see and touch the catalogued items, and can leave Left Bids to be entered on their behalf during the real time auction. Those who are extremely interested in certain items can request to be on the phone during the sale of those items. Everyone who participated in the last auction expressed enjoyment with the system.
