Bring and Buy Auction
Bring and Buy (BnB) auction
We’re excited to be offering a Bring and Buy (BnB) auction at TCTC 2019. The auction will be held on Saturday, March 30th and will run from 12 pm – 6 pm.
The idea is simple. Instead of having an auctioneer managing the individual lots for sale, there is a dedicated space set aside with all the items for sale on display. Any attendee can check out the items and if they find something they would like to buy, simply pick it up and bring it up to the cashier to pay the appropriate listed price.
How does it work
We will only accept items starting on Saturday from 9:00 am until 11:30 am after which the auction begins at 12 pm and will continue to run until 6 pm. Each item will have its price change (at your discretion) at 2 pm and again at 4 pm. This allows potential buyers to choose to wait for a price drop and pick the game up at a lower amount if it’s still around for purchase. Again, you don’t have to alter the prices at the different time slots if you don’t want to. Example: Game item has been listed for 12 pm price of $40, 2 pm price of $35 and 4 pm price of $30.
How to Register

- Tag each of your games with an Item form. Item Sheets displays the price info for any potential buyers.
- You set the price that you want for each item (note all prices must be in whole dollar amounts – e.g. $10, $40, etc. NOT $10.50).
