What is an Auction Store?
An Auction Store is like a flea market except instead of each person selling their own stuff, the PrezCon auction staff runs the store so you can pay attention to the Auction or play games.
The Auction Store:
1) satisfies those who would like a flea market instead of an auction
2) increases the number of items PrezCon can sell in the same time frame currently used, and
3) allows the sale of the lower value items in a way that is more cost-effective without cluttering up the Auction. Also, it allows everyone a chance to accomplish more "shopping" in less time, since you can peruse the items in the Store while the Auction is ongoing, fully within earshot and bidding range.
When & Where:
The Auction Store will be held in Giorgio's across from the Treetop restaurant and will be open from 11:00 until 16:00 on Saturday.
How Does it Work?
The Seller may set three different prices based on the time the item sells. The Buyer simply picks up the item and takes it to the cashier for payment of the amount listed during the given timeframe of the purchase.
Store hours are from 11:00 to 16:00 on Saturday and the prices will change (at seller's discretion) at 13:00 and 15:00.
Caveat Emptor (Buyer Beware)
The Auction Staff assumes no responsibility for the condition of the game or the accuracy of the seller's description on the auction store item sheets. They are not responsible for mistakes or missing components. All sales are final!
In God we trust; all others pay cash. When you want to purchase an item, you must immediately come forward to the cashier and make your purchase. We are not set up for checks, credit cards, or paypal. Buyers who fail to complete their purchases promptly in the view of the cashier will forfeit their right to enter the auction store.
Lots offered for sale will be defined by the seller as being in one of the following physical condition categories. You should familiarize yourself with these terms so as to better judge the condition of what is being offered.
A brief description of the item describing any extra bonus features such as sorting trays, variant pieces, etc. should be provided for any items which include them.
Who can Sell and what can be Sold?
Selling is limited to those with a current PrezCon badge. Due to the specialized nature of PrezCon as a game convention, only games and accessories pertaining to them can be sold.
