Sales table

Items to be sold through the sales table should be delivered to the hall between 8.30 and 8.45 am. Each item should be clearly labelled, showing the price (in whole dollars), the vendor’s initials, and a serial number assigned by the vendor. For example, Joe Blow’s item number 3 for sale at twenty-five dollars, would have a label “$25, JB, No.3”.


When delivering items, vendors must also submit to the Sales Table Officer a list of their items (preferably on a standard form, available on the website or from the Auction Convenor). This form must show the serial numbers, prices and a brief identifying description of the items. No sale will take place without this list.
