Good day everyone

We hope you are enjoying this last bank holiday before Christmas.

I am back to give you some more information about our three-day event, which starts on Friday 11th September and ends on Sunday 13th September.

The total amount of lots going under the hammer is 1714.Does that mean it’s the biggest so far?, I think it is, I’ve lost track to be honest but any way that is it. So here are the dates and starting times (Friday 11th Saturday 12th And Sunday 13th September). All will start at 11.00 am (NOTE 11.00am) So it is going to be another busy three days, followed by an even busier week or so (No forget the so bit!!!) in arranging pickups and packing and posting of goods. We have got to clear all this sale in 7 days if our next plan is to work.

I have been saying over the last couple of months, we would like to get back to as close as normal as possible. Well I think we have managed to do this (He says crossing everything possible and more).We have managed to get in front and at this moment in time have 660 lots ready on the system which are all photographed. I will be contacting regular vendors over the next few days to see if they can get their items in with in the next week. We are aiming for about 1,150 lots which will be a two- day event.

So, team A.S.H. will be split into two teams, one sorting out the ongoing sale and the other concentrating in completing the next one.

We are and I know this might be a pushing our skills to the limits, trying to get it online by Monday 21st September and run it on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September. That is plan “A” and I will keep you all informed of progress. If we can do this it means we can the go to fortnightly sales of around 1,150 lots spread over two days.

Anyway, let us get back to this up and running sale.

Amazing response, thank you all again for your interest in A.S.H. Auctions. Within a matter of minutes of the catalogue going online, questions were coming in about lots, registrations were being made and the whole thing burst into life once more.

Well that is enough to keep your minds busy for now, so just read the paragraphs below for the boring, but important bits.

Bye for now

What we think is good and what you think is good may be miles apart.

 

Section 2: BIDDING

We are NOT allowing the general public into the auction room at present. The reason for this is because we are conducting larger sales, we have had to reduce the bidding area. With the latest government guidelines, we would only be able to accommodate a maximum of six people. We feel this is not practical and so for the time being, you will still need to bid live online from your home, We are excepting commission bids as normal but we are not able to provide a telephone bid services for this sale.

 

Section 3: PAYMENT
