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.

Thanks for spending time with us, and we hope to see you online!Happy Bidding,
Angie

  • Items may be picked up locally or can be shiped to you. If you chose to have your item(s) shipped, you will charged a shipping fee. Multiple items won and shipped to the same address qualify for a discounted shipping fee.
  • Winning items will be shipped after payment is received.
  • Due to the lag in Facebook Live events, the auctioneer will give a 30 second warning, before declaring lot sold, to ensure they do not miss any bids.
  • Bidding on lots will consist of the following bid structure:
    • $1 to $10 – Bids will be in $1 increments until the lot reaches $20.
    • $20 to $50 – Bids will be in $2 increments until the lot reaches $50

  • To bid, use the comment box to enter the amount of your bid. Important: place a letter in front of your bid amount. You may use any letter, and the dollar sign is not needed. 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.
  • If you’re no longer interested in the item, please type “Out” in the comments, so auctioneer knows you are no longer bidding on that item.

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
