Welcome to the 14th series of Hidden Valley auctions! More folks have been cleaning up their houses! I even had to increase the storage on the auction house's account, just to handle the volume of items this time. It's taken many hours the past week to prep these auctions, but there's again items to please just about everyone, plus enough commodities to power a small army! Enjoy yourselves, and good luck! Auction 14a: ends Sat June 13 at 8 pm EDT A: Rares B: Invasion Spellbooks C: Food and Drink-Related Items N: Containers G: Bugged Items * NOTE: I will be AFK at the close of this auction. I will close it out as soon as I am able on Sunday. I will not be handling proxies for this auction.

I will contact winners for pickup as soon as your items are ready. Once again, nearly every lot is "no reserve"... Go wild! Just in case I've missed setting the reserve for any lots, if there is no reserve listed, then a lot is no reserve. All items will be delivered on Atlantic. For anyone who does not use ICQ or some other instant messaging platform, contact me and I will make arrangements with you - please make sure that you have access to a mailbox somewhere on Atlantic where I can deliver your items. Also, I will be out of town and AFK Tues June 22-June 30; it would be most appreciated if all winners can try to pick up their items, or at minimum contact me, before I leave. There will be no private bids. All bids must be made in this thread. Proxies are permitted; if you need a proxy, please feel free to ICQ me. However, given the size of these auctions, and the number of ICQs I receive daily, if you can bid for yourself, please do. Important: I will confirm all proxy requests. If you ICQ or PM me to ask for a proxy, and I do not reply confirming it, assume that I did not receive it - please send the request again! For the majority of the items in this auction, I am not the owner, but merely the auctioneer. I reserve the right to bid on any items not my own. The normal 10 minute rule will apply. The auction for that individual item will continue until ten minutes elapses with no further bids. The timestamp on the forum posts will be the deciding timer. Please note that North America is now in daylight savings time; please make sure to double check what time 7 pm EDT is for you! Minimum bids/increments: Minimum bid: 100k High bid is 2m or lower: minimum 100k increments High bid is between 2m and 5m: minimum 500k increments High bid is between 5m and 50m: minimum 1m increments High bid is between 50m and 100m: minimum 3m increments High bid is between 100m and 250m: minimum 5m increments High bid is between 250m and 500m: minimum 10m increments High bid is above 500m: minimum 25m increments No bid retractions will be allowed. Bids must not be edited after they are posted. Anyone caught modifying or retracting bids will face possible consequences including bans from future auctions. I reserve the right to make errors interpreting minimum bid increments or any other part of these rules. Resolving those errors is left to my discretion. Payment will be accepted only on Atlantic. If you can only pay on another shard, please contact me prior to the end of the auction. Please also note that all reserves are firm. Please PM or ICQ 23573865 with any questions. I run auctions frequently, as time and my patience permits. If you are cleaning house or have anything you'd like to auction off, please contact me via PM or ICQ at 23573865. Items may also be dropped off at the mailboxes at my house on Atlantic; please be sure to read the book on the mailboxes! I ask that the following people NOT bid in my auctions: Inkboy the Wild - 1,175m in bids went unpaid in a previous auction. Multiple excuses and promises to pay the following day, without results, even when the sellers were patient enough to allow 6 weeks for payment. Lava Hunter - For actions which harm and insult the auction community. "No reserve" means no reserve. With all of that boilerplate out of the way, on with the auction!
