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 absentee bidders. Contact us before the convention starts.

- ETF will take a 20% commission on the final sale price with the seller receiving 80%. 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. There will be a 2 1/2 percent surcharge for credit card or PayPal payments.

- 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.
