This is a blind, or sealed-bid sale.  You submit a bid sheet with the maximum price you would pay for an item by the close of the month.  If you are the high bidder you win the item, often at less than your full bid.  You will be notified if you have won at the close of the sale and will have 15 business days to make payment by check or credit card through PayPal.  Need more time to pay?  I offer extended payment plans at no cost - see the Detailed Instructions for more information.  There is a buyer's premium on all sales: 15% on invoices less than $1000; 10% on invoices over $1000.  Clocks that don't sell at auction can be purchased afterwards for the minimum + premium.

 The bid form

 How does this work?

Have you studied the catalog and found a clock or two that you need?  Now you need to submit a bid form.  Be sure you have reviewed the first page of the Detailed Instructions so you understand how to bid.  Then download the bid form (below), fill it out with your clock(s) and bids, and add any instructions or conditions on your bids.  Then email it back to me at and I'll acknowledge receipt promptly!  Be sure it is in my hands by the end of the month.  If you use postal mail allow five business days for delivery.  I cannot accept faxes, photo images, or phone call bids.
Here is the bid form in a form-fillable PDF format: Click on the link and it will either download to your computer (in your downloads folder) or will open in a new window in your browser.  Modern browsers (e.g., Chrome) will allow you to fill it out in your browser window and then save, with your changes, to your computer.  Then simply send it back to me by email or postal mail. 
You can also fill it out in a PDF reader (Adobe Reader) or any PDF editor program.  If that still doesn't work, print out the form and fill out by hand, scan, and send back to me! 
Please note, I can no longer accept photo images of your bid form, so please don't send me texts (or emails) with a smartphone image of your completed bid form.   
Are you still stuck?  Just send me an email with the following information: Name, mailing address, preferred phone number, and email address.  List your bids by catalog number and short title, with bid amount.  I'll take it from there!

 Want to consign?

I am always looking to buy or accept on consignment  better quality clock collections, large or small.  I can take all your clocks, or a portion if you are just wishing to downsize.  I will pick up the clocks, usually at no charge.  You can review the consignment agreement and the consignment fees here; all clocks are listed with a minimum bid price (reserve), so you can be confident they won't sell for a below-market price.  I can buy your collection outright for 70% of current retail value.  Call me to discuss the possibilities!
