Do I have to cover shipping charges if I need a physical item shipped to me?

Yes. We highly suggest in-person pick up for all physical items, but in the case of an item needing to be shipped to the winning bidder, all shipping charges will be covered by the purchaser/highest bidder. Please note that the default shipping method is In-Person Pick Up, meaning unless shipping is specifically requested we will expect the purchaser to pick up the item at our storefront.

I’d like to donate an item or service to next year's Auction! How can I do that?
