As a buyer you have to register with a valid picture ID to bid at our auctions. We do not share your registration information with outside sources. We give a "paddle" fan with a number on it for you to use when you bid. We  sell over 600 items (lots) at each Main Street Gallery auction  We sell at a rapid pace. We ask that you come in on sale date for pre-view and inspect items. Pre-view begins at noon on sale day only.
We begin our auctions promptly at 6:00 PM est. We feature every item up for bid on large screen televisions so you can bid with ease from your seat. If you wish, you can walk the floor as our assistant marks the buyer number on won items. If you can not attend the auction, we accept absentee bids and will represent you during the auction. We also accept telephone bids.  
We video tape all proceedings. In the event there is a clerking error we refer to the video to clear up any misunderstandings. We have a minimum opening bid of $5.00 on each item. We offer shelf lots and box lots. We offer multiple items when we sell a shelf "deal" or a box lot. You may pull an item from these deals with the opening bid at $5.00. 
You must pay for your items at the end of your bidding process. Do not remove items from the building until they are paid for. If you can not load out at the end of your bid process, we offer pickups on Monday following a sale from 11 am to 4 pm.
We sell everything "as is" "where is" with no guarantees of any kind. Any announcements made from the auction block takes place over any written words or advertisements.
