How to bid

Shop for an item in our online auction store.

You can search by category or use the search box with keyword search (i.e. food). When you’ve found an item you’d like to bid on, click the item and enter a bid amount greater than the current bid. There are fixed bidding increments – the value for the next bid is shown below the bidding box.

Click “Place Bid”.

You will receive an email notification when:

  • You have registered for an account
  • You have successfully placed a bid on an item
  • Someone has outbid you (you may keep bidding on an item – sign back in and repeat the bidding process!)
  • You have won an item once the auction has ended – so check back often, and watch your email for updates!

MAKE SURE YOU ARE RECEIVING EMAILS: Add email address troop658vt@gmail.com to your Safe Senders list, or search for emails in your spam folder. Make sure to mark them as “not spam” to receive new messages from the website.

Receiving your item and payment

We will contact you via email or phone to arrange a safe, convenient exchange of items and payment after the auction has ended.

We accept cash or check made out to “Troop 658”, due upon delivery of your winning items.

Please note that with the exception of gift cards, we will not be shipping items out of state; we will deliver items to Vermont addresses only.
