Friday Night Auction

Here are the images and information for this May’s Windy City Friday Night Auction! We’ve split up the Friday Night Auction Lots into groups of 50, so it won’t take so long to refresh.

As we’ve done for the last several years, we have a pre-auction silent bidding session. Attendees as well as those who’d like to place bids over the internet are welcome to join in. [To bid, simply fill out the form that can be found at the bottom of the page.] These silent bids will be basis for opening bids. Therefore any bid listed as CURRENT BID will be the amount we start that lot. If no one trumps that bid, the silent bidder will be declared the winner and that lot will close. To place a silent bid, use the form at the bottom of each page. Please be advised that we will close all silent bidding an hour prior to the auction. All bids must be in prior to that time. Please check back often for bids being updated on the website. If your bid isn’t listed, you must check back in an hour prior to the auction, otherwise we cannot be help responsible for a lack of silent bid.

On these special auctions, there will be a 10% buyers premium attached to each lot that is sold.
