Kaleidoscope is now on HiBid!
e are so excited to have partnered with the popular online auction site, HiBid for our upcoming auctions! Below are answers to a few questions that may come up, a link to our new HiBid page, and a few reasons why we have chosen to move to HiBid. Of course, if you have any questions, feel free to call, text, or email us!

A few answers to questions you may have:
First, I ask you to PLEASE read our terms and conditions on the sale (available when registering). This information will help you and us with lots of details.
You will need to register with a debit or credit card on HiBid to bid on items. When you register, your card is checked for validity. If you would like to pay with cash or check at the end of the sale, just let us know in your registration notes or send us a message.
If you are tax-exempt, please let me know in your registration notes so I can remove tax from your invoice.
Shipping is calculated after the sale closing, depending on the size of the box needed. This should especially help with those who purchase multiple items!
Similar to EstateSales.net auctions, you can enter a Max Bid, and the system will bid on your behalf against competing bidders. This is a helpful tool and does not automatically jump your bid up to the max UNLESS someone else's max bid is competing with yours. (give me a call if you have questions about this)
We are so excited about SOFT CLOSES! This means no one can "swipe" an auction at the last second. If someone bids close to closing, 2 minutes is added to that item so others have a chance.
Along those lines, items now close at "staggered times", similar to a live auction. This is great if you have your eye on more than one item!
At the end of the sale, I receive a list of invoices per customer to process with the card on file. Please let me know before the sale closes if there are any special circumstances for me to know (paying with cash, shipping, no tax, etc.) and I will accommodate those for you.
