“SHACKLETON’S AUCTIONS ADDS ONLINE BIDDERS”
LYONS – If you think Shackleton’s Auctions has been crowded for special “collector’s sales” in the past, you haven’t seen the half of it. And you won’t either.
Shackeltons’ has embraced online bidding for these special sales in the past year, including a major event this past Saturday. And, according to employee/spokesperson LeAnne Sullivan, it’s been a successful experiment:
“We started doing the online bidding last September when we had our first 2 day sale. Then we used it again last November for another 2 day sale. Both were collector sales. We started using it as a lot of other auction companies have started using it as well and have great success in doing so. It is a great way to promote a sale. The company we use is called Proxibid and they promote our sale worldwide to all of their customers. For collector sales it is nice to use as there is a small market of collectors of these items in our area and this brings a larger crowd of collectors in to bid. We will continue online for collector sales and specialty sales.
It goes over really well and gives people a chance to buy collector items that they want when they are unable to be here. We have bidders from all over the world that register and buy. For this sale (Saturday), we sold approx. 10% of the sale online to bidders from Ontario, Germany, Hawaii, and many in the U.S (Maryland, Tennessee, Michigan,-to name a few). This sale we had around 220 bidders onsite at the auction centre and 141 bidders on the internet. ”
