The Barnabas Network, the Triad's only nonprofit furniture bank, is pleased to kick off its Holiday Eclectic Auction. Our team has curated an incredible collection of vintage and antique pieces with oodles of holiday flair that you just won't find anywhere else. This one has charming desks, lots of high-end china, ready-made Christmas tree & ornament sets and so much more. Bidding starts Friday, December 9 at 8 a.m. and ends Sunday, December 11 at 8 p.m. Go ahead and get registered, and get ready to bid!

 

Bidding - Online, Overtime Bidding

This is an online auction. Items will become visible on this page Friday, December 9 at 8 a.m. You will be able to browse and bid on items (through this website) through Sunday, December 11 at 8 p.m., when the auction will begin to close. This auction, like our other recent auctions, will feature overtime bidding. This means we will be monitoring the bids live beginning at 8 p.m. and we'll keep the entire auction open until all bidding battles have finished. Watch the video and read the details in that section below for more information. All bidding takes place exclusively online through this auction website.

 

Browsing - In-Person

To reiterate, all bidding will take place online, through this auction website - however, just like last time, you will be able to come see the items in-person. See dates and times below. 

 

Payment and Pick Up 

It is never too early to think about how you are going to get your possible winnings home. All payment will be online through the website, and then everything must be picked up by Saturday, December 17, at 2 p.m. Plan now. Measure your vehicle, find some rope, tie downs, and plastic, ask your friends with trucks and trailers or call a moving company. Check the section below for more details.

IMPORTANT AUCTION INFO ON BIDDING AND SHARING LINKS

 

 

OVERTIME BIDDING

As we have done with all of our recent auctions, we will do a manual close for the overtime portion of our auction. What does that mean? It means that as the close of our auction draws near on Sunday, December 11 at 8 p.m. our staff will be monitoring the bids as they arrive. If a bid is received in the last minute before 8 p.m. then the entire auction will be extended for an additional minute. This process will repeat as long as bids are continuing to come in for any item in the auction. Even if there is a bidding battle for just one item, the entire auction will stay open until all items are settled at the highest bid. Once a  minute elapses with no bids on any item in the system, we will close the auction. This is similar to the auctioneer saying "Going once, going twice...Sold". It may take 1 minutes, or 20 minutes or 40 minutes or more depending on the level of bidding. Go ahead, send in those bids and don't wait for the last minute, or consider setting your max bid and walk away.

 

 

Always remember why we (and you) are doing this, to help change lives. Thank you for your support!

PAYMENT AND PICK UP INFORMATION

Auctions are always exciting, but once it closes, what are the next steps? When the bidding closes, winners will be notified via email and provided with a link to pay for their items. You will have 24 hours to check out with the card of your choosing using the link provided. After that period of time, any unpaid invoices will be charged to the card on file.

 

Once paid, you will be emailed a receipt. You must bring your receipt with you during one of the times listed below to pick up your items at our warehouse (838 Winston Street, Greensboro, NC 27405). All payment must be made through the website before you come to pick up. There will be no transactions at the pick up location.

 

To pick up, you may come by during the hours listed below. You may also contract with a third-party delivery service, but make sure you either meet them here or send them with a copy of your receipt. Be sure to check the measurements in the descriptions of our items to make sure your vehicle will be big enough, and don't forget to bring rope, straps, and plastic to secure and protect your items if needed.
