    Item Submission
    Remember to only give items to Demon Slayer at icq# 102388892, Sundina at icq# 95509325 or lineman at 459-176-283. If you have suggestions or any questions please icq one of us. If an item is listed with no buyout and receives a bid we will not be able to add a buyout from that point on.

    Be sure you think about whether or not you want a buyout before you hand us an item. If an item is listed and someone has met the reserve we will not be able to remove item if seller requests. So basically the rules are going to be a little tougher on the sellers this time around.

    Bidding Rules
    Any item bid on after 11:50 PM Saturday will extend auction 10 minutes. Item will close out after it hasn't received a bid for ten consecutive minutes. This will eliminate people losing an item at the last second and will also provide additional time for bidders to post their contact info (Icq or Statics name.)

    Winning Bids
    If you win an item and we can’t get in touch with you before 9pm Sunday, we will ask the next highest bidder if they want the item for their high bid. Once all bidding ends on all the items we will be making house private. Please be patient after that point and we will do our best to get in touch with everyone as quickly as possible.
