    Silent auctions are the way to go if you can't fit all the items in -however it does take away the profit from the auction house as they don't get to feed off the obsessed bidder who gets caught up in the action and bids beyond his means in other words the very reason for an auction in the first place! I for one am not going to an auction to be in competition with the hired help -unless you want me to be part of it and HELP YOU!!!!!

    I have grown tired of beating a dead horse...I have already addressed the name issue several times, including in this thread...

    "Giving you my name will not provide any positive results for myself. You may be able to verify that your staff purchased my stuff, but you will not be able to prove it occured prior to the auction beginning, because time of purchases was not recorded. So what do I really gain? Yes the people on this forum will know whether your staff bought items of mine, but by giving you my name, all that does is single me out, and I'm sure will land me on some sort of black list. You have already admitted that your staff purchased antlers last year, so I think people can connect the dots."

    I find it interesting that you Steve, continue to make me the target of your calumnies, instead of addressing the issue.

    There is no way for you to determine whether staff purchased items early, we know your guys bought stuff at the auction, you are considering steps to resolve this situation...

    Steve, with regard to your suggestion "how about this ........ none of our people can participate in the buy it now until 2 hours past the alotted time ? is that fair ?" I believe that should include making sure all items make it out the tables. Your workers may be tempted to pull stuff to the side and hold it for 2 hours before purchasing. I also believe that any policy instituted should be made in writing and provided to all sellers.

    Also, I totally agree with CJN, the best solution probably is to prohibit all auction workers from purchasing auction items. Then if this happens again in the future you will know what worker bought an item, and they can be appropriately disciplined. If your workers want to buy things, then they either need to get someone to come to your auction to buy for them, or not work at the auction so they can buy things.

    I don't understand why auction workers shouldn't be able to buy items? Again, I'm sticking my nose in your business (I'm neither a buyer or seller at that auction), but everyone should be able to buy. The important thing is that everyone has an equal opportunity to buy. Silent auction WILL solve this problem. I'm not sure why you'd rather bicker than choose this fair solution.

    Let me clarify my opinion, I do not have a problem with helpers/workers buying as long as they are not holding items back or getting first dibs before any other buyers, if they want items they can bid side by side with everyone else. This is a great sale and have confidence that steve will improve what needs to be improved upon.
  6. Thanks CJN

  12. as a lot of you know that have been to the sale in the past 10 years
    the pictures here & on our web site don't even come close to the amount of stuff at the auctiom
  13. A silent auction is a great idea when you only have a few items to sell, but with the huge amount of antlers at Steve's auction (hundreds) there would not be a way (or room) to keep everything straight. Let Steve work this out........come to the auction .................have fun!!!
    That's what I intend to do.
