  • 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.
  • 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.
  • After it appears no more bids are coming in, the auctioneer will announce that bidding for that item is about to close and count down from 5 to 1, declare item “sold” and state the winning bidder.  

Please note that Gitie and her team are continually trying to improve their auctions to give you an enjoyable experience. However some things are beyond their control, with internet speed being the main thing. While the lag time between your bid and Gitie seeing it my be upwards of 45 seconds at times, be assured that Gitie allows plenty of time to receive bids before calling the item “sold”.

Hope you can join in the fun this Friday evening! Until then stay safe and Happy Bidding!

Gities and Gitie’s Auctions Offer Walk-About Wednesday Videos on Facebook


Hi All! Gities and Gitie’s Auction is pleased to announce that they now offer Walk-About Wednesday videos. What are Walk-About Wednesdays you ask, let me explain 🙂

Walk-About Wednesdays are Facebook Live videos where Gitie walks about the Warehouse and Shop to show you new arrivals and current deals at both. As the name indicates, the Walk-About usually takes place on Wednesdays, with the Warehouse held first around early afternoon, and the Shop Walk-About held a bit later.

Below are the video replays of the first Walk-About Wednesday. To ensure you’re notified when Gitie goes live with her Walk-Abouts, go to her Facebook page and sign up for notifications. You can go directly to her Facebook page by clicking here.

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.

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

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.

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!!
