Governor's Auctions Launches in January! Got Questions? We've Got Answers!



Q) Are you selling everything in the store?
A) Absolutely not! We will sell selected items from store on occasion, but primarily, the auctions will be largely independent of the shop. 

Q) What kinds of items will be available in the auctions? 

A) The variety is nearly limitless! From furniture and collectibles, vintage advertising, tools and housewares, to electronics and everything in between. 

Q)How can I find out what's coming up? 

A) The BEST way to stay in the know is to sign up for our email newsletter. Visit our website and sign up for updates on upcoming auctions events and to preview the items we'll have available. Sign up at

Q) Can I preview items before I bid? 

A) Yes. All items can be viewed in person the Friday before the auction closes. 

Q)I want to bid. How do I pay?

A) You can pay via Mastercard, Visa, American Express, or Paypal, and your payment will be processed immediately upon auction close via our secure website. 

Q) How does proxy bidding work? 

A) Upon registering and placing a bid, you'll be prompted to enter a "Maximum Bid." This is the largest amount you are comfortable paying for that item. Our software will attempt to win you the item at the lowest amount, but will competitively bid for you up to the maximum you have set. 

Q) I'm out of state/ far away, and I'd love to bid- will you ship?

A) Unfortunately, we can neither ship nor deliver items sold at auction. If you win an auction, you must make arrangements to pick up your item(s) on the designated pick up day. We cannot and will not hold sold items beyond that pickup day. 

Q) I have lots of things I'd like to sell! How do I get them in an auction?

A) For now, email us at and let us know what you have. We'll be touch. Once we have launched, we'll post more details on the website of how that process works!
