Guidelines for ETF Auction & Swap Meet

Live Auction:

  • Sellers are allowed to place a reserve on their items. Reserve prices are not announced.
  • If bidding stalls before the reserve is met, the seller will be given the opportunity to make the reserve known or to lift the reserve.
  • If the item still does not meet reserve, the seller and high bidder will have the opportunity to negotiate a deal after the auction.
  • We will attempt to find an attendee to place bids for absejtee bidders. Contact us before the convention starts.
  • The ETF will take a 10% commission on the final sale price with the seller receiving 90%. This is for all sales in the Live Auction including those negotiated after the auction.
  • Payment can be made anytime after the close of the auction through Sunday afternoon by cash, credit card or Paypal.
  • We are unable to arrange shipping, but will cooperate with a shipper you select for item pickup.
  • Items may be left at the museum for a maximum of 90 days after the auction.

Swap Meet:

  • Outside Swap Meet spaces are available to all paid convention attendees on a first come, first served basis. There is a $15 charge for each vendor.
  • No commission is charged by the ETF for Swap Meet sales.

    Please see Darryl Hock or Steve McVoy for any questions or for help in setting up your items.
