New D&E Online Auction to begin Friday, March 1!

Several people have asked us when we were going to have another online auction.  The time has come !  A new online auction will begin Friday, March 1 at 9:00 pm and run until Sunday , March 10, 9:00 pm.


This auction has a wide variety of items with vintage and antique items, coins, jewelry, collectibles, decorative items, household items, some new items, some used items, military items, and much more!


Bidding online is fun and easy, and unlike some online "auction"  pages, you can't be sniped in the last second of the auction.  This auction uses a soft, staggered close.  Lot 1 will begin to close at the scheduled closing time and after a set time delay, Lot 2 will begin to close. Also, any bids that occur with less than 3 min left will add 3 minutes to the close time for that lot.  That allows each person an opportunity to rebid if desired.    Watching the closing is always fun as bidders try to win the items they want.  Bidding wars are common during the closing and you can watch the back and forth bidding as it happens!


Have some auction fun and bid from the comfort of your home or wherever you might be!

**You may wonder why the preview is listed as "by appointment".  Well, the last 2 times we have scheduled a preview only 1 person came.  So, we figured this would make it easy for you and us both.  If you want to look things over (which we highly recommend), then just let us know and we will show them to you at a time that is convenient for you.  Just contact us by email, text, or phone.   


Getting to the Auction Page

If you have never bid in our auctions, please go to the terms and conditions page and read them carefully.  You can also find terms and conditions on the auction page.

Frequently Asked Questions

We will begin listing some of our most commonly asked questions here.  You may have the same question that others have had.  If you don't find what you are looking for, please let us know.


Q. : Do I have to have a credit or debit card to bid in this auction?

A. : Yes.  Most online auctions require card payment for protection of both the auction company and the buyer.


Q. : Why was my card charged $1 when I registered?

A. : There is no fee to register for the online auction.  However, the card processing company will ping your account for $1 to make sure the number was correctly entered and charges can be made.  There is no actual charge made and you will not have to pay the $1.


Q. : Is my credit information safe?

A. : Yes, absolutely!  No information is stored by D & E Auctions and the card processing company uses the same security protocols used with major stores and businesses.


Q. What is a stagered soft close?

A.  A staggered soft close means that the auction closes one lot at a time starting with lot #1.  15 seconds later, the next lot begins to close and so on.  If anyone bids on an item with less than 3 minutes remaining on that item, 3 minutes are added.  This prevents sniping and continues as long as there is active bidding on the item.
