The Coca-Cola Collectors Club Convention Part 2

One activity at the Convention was a Silent Auction.  Club members are allowed to put a few items into the auction. The Club takes a small fee from each sale to help defray the cost of the Convention and to allow the Club to meet its expenses.

 The auction will start at a set time, but you don’t know when it will end. Each item has a bid sheet placed in front of it. You walk around the room, find an item you like, write in a bid and your registration number. Then walk away and hope someone doesn’t come in behind you and outbid you. You continue doing this until the end of the auction is called. You don’t know when they might end it.

  There were around 40 or 50 tables of items.  You can pick up some pretty good items at a silent auction as long as you are quick on your feet!

  Here is a typical table at the silent auction.
