What is the auction all about ?
Are you looking to find an older game you just canít track down or perhaps a miniature you are unwilling to pay unreasonable amounts to obtain that you really havenít been able to find anywhere ?
Do you have game cards cluttering up your basement that you would like to get rid of so you have room (and money) to buy the newest version of your favorite roleplaying game ? Or maybe even a bunch of miniatures you wish you could turn into the newest, bestest, shiniest army that is just being released ?
Want to unload game stuff you don't use any more but just donít want to hassle with all the payment, waiting, international shipping, overhead cost issues of eBay ?
Here is your chance. The Games Plus Auction has been going on for over twenty five years with both Spring and Fall sessions to provide a maximum of opportunity for our customers.
We provide the venue to turn your old junk into brand new games items or to find that rare piece for your collection youíve heard about but canít seem to find.
Customers bring in their games, miniatures, terrain and other items and we auction them off, allowing them the ability to dispense with things they no longer want by providing a marketplace that has hundreds of customers over the week the auction takes place. And not to worryówe donít sell used Pong consoles, peoples VHS collections or other non-gaming stuff so you won't be sitting around waiting for something you care about as opposed to watching an on stage yard sale.
In order to sell things at the auction you only need to sign up for a lot number, fill out some paperwork and bring your items back (with what little work there is done) between Tuesday, September 1st and Tuesday October 6th. We will do all the work of auctioning your items and will give you 100% of what they sell for in store credit.
Anything that doesnít sell will be returned to you.
We will begin to hand out paperwork about a month before the auction so you have time to dig through your basement, agonize about what needs to go and get it all ready to go in plenty of time.
You simply drop the items off a week or two before the auction and we do all the hard work.
About 4 days after the auction unsold items and store credit will be available for the contributors to pick up. We take the time between auction completion and then to tally up the lots, make sure everything is accounted for and try to actually sleep, so please, don't call asking about your results. They won't be ready. Your patience will be rewarded. Thanks for understanding.
For in idea if what is involved in preparing your items for the auction - you can take a look HERE at the instructions. This does not include the sheets to do so, you have to contact us to be assigned a lot number.
To have an opportunity to buy items all you need do is show up on the auction day, sign up for a bidder card and buy away. Sales are by cash at time of purchase, or we will set up buyer accounts for folks who want to pay later by credit or check. Details on the auction days are available upon request and will be covered prior to each auction day.
