THE WBC AUCTION STORE. It’s
like a flea market except instead of each person manning their own table
the BPA runs the entire shebang so you can pay attention to the Auction
or play games. It increases the number of items the BPA can sell in the
same time frame we currently use while giving the lower value items a
venue to sell in a way that is more cost effective for them while not
cluttering up the Auction with a lot of low interest items. And it allows
everyone a chance to accomplish more “shopping” in
less time since you can peruse the items in the Store while the Auction
is ongoing to your left fully within earshot and bidding range.
does it work?
It’s similar to the Auction in that you have
to complete a form and pay a submission and sales fee on each item (or
lot) you enter, but instead of a minimum bid you set the price you want
for the item. You set three different prices based on the time the item
sells. Simply drop your items off with the sheets attached, and then
pick up your unsold items at the end of Store hours. The Store hours are
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and the prices will change (at your discretion)
at Noon and 2 pm. This will allow you as the seller to benefit from the
ability to lower the price as the day wears on. It also allows you to
benefit from the buyers who will pay the higher earlier price because they
will be concerned someone else may take your item before they do. Of course
if you only want to list one price for all three times that’s ok
too! Sellers proceeds will be available in the same manner and time frame
as those for the Auction.
What are the costs?
Each item or lot costs a non-refundable 25 cents in advance to put in the store. In addition,
you pay from the proceeds a sales fee based on the price the item gets, not the maximum or minimum
price, according to the schedule below:
item will be accepted for the Store with a price of more than $30. Sellers
wishing to realize more than $30 for their item must put it in
the Auction. As you can see, it’s much more cost
effective to use the Store for lesser-value items, and it frees the Auction
up for more valuable items. Of course, in the Store you don’t
get the benefit of multiple buyers bidding the price of your item
the store be located? The Store will be on the right side of the
Lancaster Showroom next to the Auction and will run concurrently with
it. So you’ll be able to check out the Store while the Auction
is ongoing without missing any of the action.
do I get my items in the Store? It will not be possible
to preregister items for the store. Store
items will be accepted from 8 to 10 pm on Monday and from
8 am until Noon on Tuesday (same as the Auction). Fill
out a Seller
Registration Form, which will be used to assign you
an anonymous number that will be used to track your sales.
You will also need a Store
Item Sheet for each item you place
for sale in the store.
will happen to unsold items? ***IMPORTANT***You
must pick up any unsold items between 4 and 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday!!!!!! The
Store will not secure your items after that and will treat them as
abandoned. Please make plans to stop by and pick up any unsold items
during this time frame. All sellers are reminded that the sale of
items at WBC is strictly limited to our licensed vendors and participants
in the Auction and Auction Store during those hours. Displays or
attempts to solicit sale of items outside the confines of the Auction and Store are strictly prohibited and will be disbanded with immediate
repeal of membership without refund.
co-operation is needed to make this work! Please do not enter the
Store area with your own games or packages for obvious security
reasons and remain quiet while visiting the Store so as not to
disturb the Auction.
