Fiber Equipment Auction
Back this year!!! The used equipment auction has been expanded to include a silent auction for smaller equipment and tools with less than a $50 minimum bid. The silent auction proved to be a great addition in 2018 so we are doing it again this year. We continue the live auction for larger items. So, it is time to clean out your closets and store rooms and give your loved, but no longer needed, equipment treasures a new home.
The auction will take place Saturday, September 28th afternoon from 2:00 - 4:00 pm
Types of things included:
Live auction: Wheels, looms, drum carders, warping boards, etc. with a minimum bid of $50
Silent auction: Needles, books, shuttles, books, etc. with no minimum bid requirement
The used equipment auction will take place on Saturday from 2:00 - 4:00 pm.
Consignments may be submitted from 12:00 - 4:00 pm on Friday, September 27th and 9:00 am - 12:00 pm on Saturday, September 28th.
Eligible Items will be fiber equipment items only and may include wheels, looms, carders, shuttles, etc.
Items such as needle sets, books, and other tools with a minimum bid less than $50 may be submitted for the silent auction.
Items should be of good quality and condition. The auction committee reserves the right to refuse any item or batch.
Magazines, fiber, yarn and farm/animal equipment will NOT be accepted
Sellers will be paid within 2 weeks of the sale. Unsold items must be picked up by 5:00 on Saturday, September 28th.
There will be a commission of 15% on all sales.
Buyers must pay for items as the bid is won and remove them by the end of the auction. Cash, checks, and all major credit cards will be accepted. NYS sales tax (7%) will be added to buyers price.
The auction is provided as a part of the Southern Adirondack Wool and Arts Festival and proceeds benefit both the Festival and consignees. Side deals to sell items for a price below minimum bid are not permitted
Note to sellers:
Please include a 4X6 inch index card for each item containing: seller name, address, telephone #; description of the item, minimum bid.
To help us market this event, please submit a photo & brief description of your sale item to firstname.lastname@example.org. These photos will be used on our website and in social media, to promote the auction and hopefully generate more participation.
The auction building will be locked at night and whenever unattended. Every effort will be made to ensure the safety of auction items, however neither the Southern
Adirondack Fiber Producers Cooperative, the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival, nor the Washington County Fair will be responsible for loss or damages.
We hope this venture will be a success for both sellers and buyers and look forward to your feedback.
