Auction Items are displayed in tents on the Trinity Church grounds 

3 Easy Ways to Take Home Something Special 

Buy It Now

No bidding is necessary on marked-down items in the Buy It Now tent! Simply take your piece to an auction cashier and pay the tagged price.

Silent Bidding

  • A minimum opening bid, and increment amounts for subsequent bids, are noted on these items.
  • Use your bidder number on the item bid sheet.
  • You may increase your bid at any time.
  • Bidding ends at 2 p.m. Bidding results will be available after 3 p.m.

Suggestion:  If you bid on multiple items, record them on a 3x5 card (available on all tables) and keep the card with you. This makes it easier to remember where you placed bids.

Take Away

All items have a Take Away price. Pay this price – it’s less than the true value of the object – and take the item away immediately. It’s instant gratification!

Hold Area:
A secure location will be provided for those who wish to have their
purchases held on site.  Items cannot be held after tour hours.
