Bootham Crescent items now up for auction

22nd February 2021

The Bootham Crescent auction is now live, with 132 items available for purchase.

All auction items will be under blind auction, meaning bidders can submit a bid for an item without knowing the current bidding price.​

Items can be bid for as many times as you like and will be completed via an online form. No other method of bidding will be accepted.​

Each bid will need a separate form submission e.g. if you would like to bid more than once on an item, you will need to make a form submission for each bid. All bids must meet the starting price to be accepted.​

All bids are subject to 20% VAT addition, therefore please consider this when making your bid.​

The auctions are due to end on Monday 1st March 2021.

The bidding form can be found here.
