What is a Quarter Auction?  Upon arrival you will purchase a numbered paddle.  Auction items will be on display and all items will have a bid price of 1, 2, 3 or 4 quarters based on their value.  The auctioneer will give a description of each item as it is up for bid.  If interested, place the required number of quarters bid in the container provided and hold up a numbered paddle.  When all bids are collected the auctioneer will draw a number.  If the number on a raised paddle matches the number drawn than that person wins the item.  If the auctioneer draws a number of a paddle that is not raised, another will be drawn until there is a winner.  Bid increments: 1 Quarter Bid – retail value up to $25; 2 Quarter Bid – value $25.01 to $49.99; 3 quarters Bid - value $50.00 to $74.99, 4 Quarter bid - $75 and up.  Specialty items may differ on bid amount.
