Timed Auction Guide

Where Can I Find Your Auction?
To view our auction on-line, you can visit Live.AntiqueAdvertising.com or use our mobile app by searching for AntiqueAdvertising.com in the Apple or Android app store.

What Is A Timed Auction?
A timed auction takes place for a set amount of days and continues until 7 PM (Eastern Time) of the closing night. At this point, the 10 minute closing clock begins and the auction will close for all lots which have not received a bid during the previous 10 minutes (at 7:10). If a lot has received a bid between 7:00 and 7:10 this will begin a new 10 minute countdown on the lot. Each time another bid is placed, the 10 minute closing clock resets until no new bids have been received for 10 minutes at which point the lot will close. Once all lots have closed, the auction will finish and successful bidders will be email their invoices within 2 days.

Will Shipping be Included in My Invoice?
All packing and shipping charges are extra. We do our own packing and shipping in house and try very hard to keep these charges as reasonable as possible for you. We ship through the Post Office and Fedex Ground (Fedex Overnight available at an extra charge). These charges will be added to your final invoice.
