Items need to be catalogued before the auction in order for bids to be properly recorded and invoices generated for each high bidder. So, all donations must be shipped pre-paid to the auctioneer or hand-delivered at least one day before the auction. If hand-delivered at an Oz Club convention, as much advance notification as possible would be appreciated regarding the exact nature of each donated item.
Shipment of donated items to the auctioneer can be arranged at any time. At your request, the Oz Club will refund the cost of shipment for donated items. However, a round of correspondence ahead of time is appropriate for all donations, and a list of the items with whatever details are known would be extremely helpful. It is difficult to estimate what Club members will bid on any item; therefore, advance valuations are generally not possible.
Donation of a larger collection to the Oz Club, however, may be handled specially in some cases. Since some part of such a collection may be retained by the Club for our archives, a fair market value appraisal may be offered at the donor’s request.
A record of the origin of donated items is kept by the auctioneer so that letters of appreciation, specifying the amount of the donation, can be sent to all donors each year that items are sold.
Contact our auctioneer to arrange donations and consignments to the Oz Club Auction in agreement with these terms.
