Don't waste your time.

This auctioneer crams 30 minutes worth of an auction into 4 hours and still calls it fast.

Rather than sell in bulk or a set price of several items of the same kind, this auctioneer splits out even the smallest of merchandise individually and then sells it like that, so it takes forever to get through a little shelf of items. Want to buy a set of something? Get ready to bid on each individual piece of it. And the stuff he's selling is a bunch of made in China rejects, no estate items at all.

Food and drink selection is only what the auctioneer likes. It's not about customers and what they may want, it's about him and what he wants.

During the start of the pandemic charged 7 dollars on up for hand sanitizer that had a price stamp on it of 2 dollars. Charged almost 3 dollars per mask for face masks that were going for 50 cents to 1 dollar elsewhere.

Him and his wife are hateful and crabby to customers all the time.

Buyer and seller beware! Don't waste your time or money here. Go next door to Dollar General instead. They have better deals.

Business takes consignment items and sells them but then doesn't pay the consigner.
Jun. 2020
Jewelry passed off as real and certified by a jeweler but turned out to be overpriced fake costume jewelry.
New in the box appliances with warranty paperwork missing and serial numbers missing.
Lights, electronics, and other 'new' items that are broken and do not work.
Dollar store reject type merchandise. Few if any estate items.
Out of date food products sometimes for sale.
Extreme price gouging for face masks, sanitizer, cleaning supplies, and other personal protection equipment during the pandemic. At one point wanted over $100 for a $25 box of masks.
No pandemic precautions such as social distancing and requirement of wearing a face mask at live auctions.
Live auction seating is so tight that you literally have your knees in the back of the person sitting in front of you.
Sometimes looks like he's taking bids from someone in the back. When you look to see who you're bidding against, that bidder seems to always quit bidding.
Says it's a 'no reserve' auction but regularly won't sell merchandise if the bid doesn't go as high as the auctioneer wants.
Offers absentee bidding however be prepared to pay the maximum amount of the absentee bid.
Auctioneer and his wife regularly argue in front of customers.
Facebook reviews show that most every employee, past and present, have put a good rating on the business when that person starts working there. Makes one wonder if that's a condition of employment. Likely the same for Google reviews and anywhere else online. And this business doesn't seem to be able to keep employees very long.
Facebook and Google reviews from friends and family, most of which have never attended the auction or purchased anything from this business.
Food is meh and priced very high. $8 for a frozen pizza that cost $2 at the store.
Auctioneer seems to always try to inflate the value of his merchandise, says he's seen his merchandise online for sale at a price sometimes 2 and 3 times what is actually listed on Amazon or eBay.

Save yourself the hassle. Go to Dollar Tree or shop online at Amazon. You'll get the same stuff for cheaper and will get friendlier and better service.
