Upcoming Auction is Going to be Awesome!


Hi Everyone! Angie here for Gitie’s and Gities Auctions. I’m back today with another post highlighting some of the items at this week’s upcoming auction, and it’s going to be a long one with a lot of pictures! So grab your beverage of choice and read on 🙂 To get a better look at the pictures, click on an image to enlarge.


Up first, in my highlights, is a selection of vintage slot machines. Available at the auction is real casino machine and several slot machine banks…and at least one of the banks still has it’s original box!


Next is a collection of vintage and collector pocket watches and vintage advertising items.

Vintage pocket watches

For the fine and performing arts enthusiasts, there are some lovely black and white photo art pieces and a wonderful musical instrument, that I believe is a mandolin.


If you’re looking for some housewares including table ware, silver serving pieces and much more, this week’s auction is full of choices. Highlighted is an entire table setting of coordinating dinnerware, linens and centerpieces; and a lovely set of blue and white kitchen canisters and jars.



Next, a nice selection of vintage figurines and a tray-lot of vintage linens that may include a few vintage hankies.


No auction would be complete without, at least, a few pieces of antique and mid-century furniture.


Finally, a personal favorite of mine, a whole pack of PAWSOME Basset Hounds!


This post contains only a small fraction of the items that will be available at the auction. If you want to see many more, click here. Auction House doors open Friday evening at 5:00 P.M. for preview, with bidding starting promptly at 6:00. See below for this week’s menu of food and beverage items available for purchase.

Until next time, Happy bidding! Angie

Coins, Sports Cards, Stamps and Other Collectibles at This Week’s Auction

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I’m back with a new auction highlight. I’ve been absent for the last month and haven’t been able to attend any auctions, and after seeing the items being auctioned, I’ve missed some great ones 😦 Gitie and her team have been acquiring some fantastic estates and bringing items for everyone! This week’s auction is no different, as you’ll see in the pictures below.

In this post I’ve highlighted coins, stamps, tools, appliances and many other items up for bid, including a couple of primitive- looking items that I have no idea of what they are 🙂











Well that’s it for the highlighted items, but there is so much more on the auction block tonight. Click here to view these and many more items. Even better, come to the auction tonight and see everything up close and in detail. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. for preview, and the auction starts promptly at 6:00.

Hope to see you there! Until next time…happy bidding!!

Facebook Live Auction Tomorrow


Hi Everyone! It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted, but I wanted to let everyone know that Gitie has another Facebook Live Auction tomorrow evening! She has a variety of unique items up for bid. Take a look at some pictures of a few of the items below, and if you’d like to see more head over to her FB page.


First up, a couple of art pieces, with at least one from a local artist. Both pieces are of Colonial Beach, the one on the left is of the boardwalk and beach. The piece on the right looks like a photo taken, during a storm, on Monroe Bay.


Next is a large collection of fantastically detailed birds carved out of stone and crystal.


Check out these intricate molds! I’m not sure what they’re used for, shortbread, or metal pouring maybe??? If you know, please leave a comment at the bottom of this post.


There is also a beautiful, vintage mini cocktail set housed in a set of books; and a tortoise colored bakelite case that could be used as a purse, make-up or art case, or as I would use it a sewing box 🙂


Rounding out this post are cast-iron toys, vintage advertising, knife with leather holder, antique gun powder flask, and a lovely fully-painted miniature portrait.


I hope you saw something that interested you, and will join Gitie tomorrow night at 6:00 P.M. when she goes live! If you’ve never watched or participated in her FB auctions, please familiarize yourself with the Terms of Auction below. Also consider following this blog and getting email notifications when new content is posted by signing up at the bottom of this post.

Gitie and Gitie’s Auctions Bring Live Auctions to Facebook Live


Hi Everyone! Hope you are staying safe and healthy as we navigate through this challenging moment in our history 😊.  Speaking of history…history has shown us that out of turmoil and uncertainty comes adaptation, ingenuity and inventiveness. Today in 2020, we’re again seeing those positive things rising up through the uncertainty and turmoil.

Gitie and Gitie’s Auctions was impacted by Virginia’s business restrictions and therefore could not hold the Friday night auctions that we all love. However, by adapting and using social media, she and her team have brought the Friday night auctions to us, giving us the opportunity for fun and connecting with friends right from your home!

Last Friday Gitie and Gitie’s Auctions launched their first Facebook Live Auction 😊! Despite a couple of small technical hiccups, it was great to hear Gitie’s voice as she described and excepted bids on some awesome items. Just as importantly, everyone participating had a great time chatting with friends and other online bidders, while we enjoyed some friendly bidding wars 😊.

At the moment Gitie and Gitie’s Auctions are uncertain how long, and how frequent, the Facebook Live Auctions will continue. However, I am excited to say she is currently planning on having them weekly, until business restrictions have eased. Once restrictions have eased, she plans to continue the online auctions in addition to the live auctions. Stay tuned for details on platform, frequency etc.!

To join the auction this Friday, go to Gitie and Gitie’s Auctions on Facebook, or click this link https://www.facebook.com/Gitiesauction/ , at 6:00 P.M. Scroll through her page until you see the “Live” auction. The bidding starts at 6:15 to give folks a chance to join. While you’re waiting, click on the bell icon in the upper right corner of the chat screen to get notified anytime Gitie goes live. Take a look below, to see some of the other items that were auctioned during her first Facebook Live Auction.


The terms of auction are:

  • All items will be invoiced and paid through PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account to receive and pay invoices).
  • Winning bidders have 24 hours to pay their invoice. NOTE: If you do not pay your invoice within the 24 hours, you will lose your item. If you do not pay your invoice on time, twice, you will no longer be allowed to participate in Gitie’s online auctions.

    • $50 and above – Bids will be in $5 increments until item is sold.
    • NOTE: Adjustments of the bid increments will be at the auctioneer’s discretion.

So as an example, if I wanted to bid $8 for an item, I decide to use the first letter of my last name, Self and type S8 in the comments.

Please keep in mind that this is an entirely new process for Gitie’s Auctions and her team, so details and hiccups are still being worked out. Gitie is working hard to make this a fun and interactive experience for everyone 😊. She and her team are both appreciative and thankful for all the support and patience that her customers have given.

Hope to see you on Facebook for some fun and friendly bidding! Angie
