Auction

Our Parksville Main thrift store runs an in-store Silent Auction once each month. These Auctions feature a collection of unique, interesting, antique and collectible items which have been donated. The items auctioned off are sometimes new, but are more likely to be pieces which have been lovingly looked after until they came to us. As gently used items there may be some distress marks on them. There are, of course, no returns on any of these products, however the winning bidder has first right of refusal.

In the past we have had collections of Native Art, Royal Doulton china, Coca Cola, stamps, vintage house wares, vintage tools, Nascar, Beleek, Matchbox toys, Vintage Barbie’s etc.

Please read the auction rules below before bidding.
