Welcome to the 15th series of Hidden Valley Auctions! Items continue to flood in from folks house cleaning and attending IDOCs. Have fun - there's definitely plenty of items for the deco-lover to choose from this time. And keep your eyes open for the rest of the auctions, to be posted soon - there's some unique items you've likely never seen, and won't want to miss! As I expect to be quite busy during August and September with the Chessie festival, this will likely be the last Hidden Valley auction series until October. Details about the festival will be made public within the next couple of weeks! Once again, nearly every lot is "no reserve"... Go wild! Note: for the rubble and rose auctions especially, 'range bids' ("lots 10 through 100 - 100k") are definitely encouraged.

Due to the sheer size of these auctions, items will take a day or two to bag up for the winners. I will contact winners for pickup as soon as your items are ready. 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. 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. Also, contact me early - for any auction, I stop accepting proxy requests 1 hour before the end of that auction. 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 the auctions end in your local time zone! Minimum bids/increments (unless otherwise specified): 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 1 m 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 such 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 about once a month, 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! The following people still owe for previous auctions, and must clear their outstanding balance before bidding in any further auctions: @drewster513 auction 13b: 8m @Murc auction 13b: 5.8m @SarBender auction 14h: 20m @Scribbles auction 14a: 20m PAID, Thanks! @starcraft auction 13b: 1.5m Bids will not be accepted from the following people: Inkboy the Wild Lava Hunter SarBender - Nonpayment, no contact, and suspected bid manipulation. With all of that boilerplate out of the way, on with the auctions!
