2.  Auctions

Our first auction of the year was very successful and we are very thankful to everyone who came out and supported it.  We would like to address one thing.  A few people asked if we had someone in the audience artificially bidding and raising prices.  Please note that we will never engage in this practice because we find it to be extremely unethical and is not at all good for growth of the business long term.  EVERY single person at the auction paid for 100% of their purchases and EVERY single person took their purchases home with them.  Everyone approaches auctions differently.  Some are dealers, some collectors and some are there for entertainment.  Everyone has different price points they are willing to pay.  I know this auction was not like our first two auctions and I know that things went for higher prices and things were sold much more quickly.  There were still good deals to be had.  Be assured that anything that would have a reserve on will be stated ahead of time and reserves will be kept to a minimum and will be reasonable.

Moving on to our second auction...

February 6, 2014

613 Westhill Blvd. Appleton

Preview/Registration at 5:00 with the auction starting at 6:00.

Join us for our monthly consignment auctions!  You never know what you will find from area estates!  Many times the items dn't arrive until the week of the sale so we have limited opportunity to do a lot of specific pre-advertising.  The February 6 auction will include a variety of antique, vintage, collectible, household, furniture and other items.  A more specific list will be included as items come in.

Future auction dates at this location: Feb 6, Mar 6, Apr 10.  We will more than likely add additional auction dates as we progress. After the April auction, we will determine when and where future auctions will be held.  If you have any ideas, we would love to hear them.  

 TERMS:Cash or charge (checks only from preapproved people) (I.D. Required to Register),  All items to be paid for and removed from the hall the day of sale. All Items Sold AS-IS, all sales Final. Not responsible for accidents or items after sold. Nothing to be removed until settled for. Announcements day of sale take precedence over public information and any prior printed material. 10% buyer’s fee applies to all bids and because we payout our consignors within 24 hours, we are not required to collect sales tax. Bumble Puppy Sales, LLC Registered Auction company #458-53. Robert J. Loderbauer, Auctioneer #206.

 


 

 3.  Flea Market

 Feb 8-9: January Indoor Flea Market:  SPOTS ARE FILLING UP FAST!

 613 Westhill Blvd

STORE CHANGES FOR THE NEW YEAR
We have some new things in store for the year as we work to improve and change our business.  Highlights of these changes are below:
1. We have introduced a monthly auction that will help us clear out our warehouse and store more quickly
2. Reintroduction of the purple sticker.  This means that items will be full priced for two weeks, 25% off for one week and half off for one week.
3.  Quarter day changes:  Items Under $10 will be a quarter on quarter day (Sunday).  Items $10-$19.99 will be 75% off and items $20 to $199.00 will be 60% off and items $200 and over will remain half off.
4.  We have eliminated the book section, clothing section and quarter tables.  You will find the clothes, books and quarter table items at our junk sales and auctions.
5.  We have created an ebay, craigslist, bumblepuppy online auction and store office.  We are  accepting consignments for these venues starting in mid January.  Please wait until you see our terms and consitions before bringing in items to consign to this venue.  We expect to be open for consignment in these areas soon.
6.  We've also switched around our booth at the Fox River Antique Mall.  Everything in it is either $5 or $10.

Auction Info

We had our first auction on October 26th.  If you'd like to see the kind of set up and kind of auction we had you can check out our pictures from last week's auction here:     http://www.flickr.com/photos/bumblepuppysales/sets/72157636955627554/
Future auctions will be held on Thursday nights and will last until about 10:00pm.  We will have a variety of items at each auction including new items that no one has seen before, items that are not moving quickly enough in the store, left over items from the store and estate sale and more.  There is a nice mix.  We have not negotiated a venue yet, but will update this information when we have the details.  If you've never been to an auction before and are nervous about how one works, please show up ahead of time and we will walk you through the process.  Its not scary, we promise!  We've just started these auctions and would like to build a legacy, so we appreciate your feedback and interest in helping us perfect this new sales venue for us.
 
In addition to these live auctions, BumblePuppy is excited to announce that we will soon be offering online auctions as well.  We are currently having our online auction platform built and will soon offer additional auctions in which you can shop from the comfort of your own home.  We will have shipping and delivery options included in this new sales venue as well.  This exciting venture will allow us to diversify our sales abilities and further meet the needs of our clients.  We hope that you'll check these out as well once we get them established.

WEEKLY WHATISIT

OK... So we realize that our somewhat weekly what is it has been on hiatus for many weeks. This week we're writing about an interesting find that we made.

Sometimes at the end of their sales, other estate sale companies will ask us to purchase sale leftovers. Sometimes we purchase everything, some times a specific collection and other times just a piece or two. We recently purchased a clothing and linen lot from an estate sale in Neenah after it was over. In this case, we left our contact information and requested to purchase the left overs (we paid full price for some of it the first day). We rarely attend other sales because first of all, we usually have a sale going on at the same time and in some cases, other companies don't' like it.

This was one of those that we were just too curious about and we are always suckers for OLD clothes! We actually have an ebay and an etsy store devoted to clothing. Janel's mom, Judie, does all of the listing, ironing, washing and research. As she was preparing some of this clothing and linens for sale, Judie was able to find out quite a bit about it.

In case you are interested in some local Neenah/Fox Cities history, I am posting those findings here...


 

 

Research completed by Judie Bedor regarding the clothing lot purchased on Park Ave in Neenah from the Rhoades house:

Most of the clothing in the lot was Edwardian. Mrs. Rhoades was a seamstress, milliner. She owned her own business since the 20s. As far as I could research she was extremely successful - even having material with her Millinery shop stamped on lining in her shirtwaists, etc. There is a Reverend Rhoades still living in area and there is a Rhoades foundation that gives scholarships, there were other Rhoades businesses.

Mrs. Rhoades merged with two other clothiers in sometime before 1934: Haase and Klinke. She even had items in her collection from W. O Thiede Clothiers from Appleton that were in business in the 30s. She must have been really good at what she did and came from a wealthy family. We have a very heavy "bear" coat (with a lot of issues) was made for the merged store - Haase Klinke Rhoades probably in the 30s - judging from the jewelry style closures and the condition/how made.


 

These items will soon be up on etsy in our antique clothing and textiles store. You can view current items and watch for these new items at this link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BumblePuppy If you are interested in any clothes and don't want to pay shipping, please keep in mind that the items are near Rice Lake, WI. We can arrange to have them brought to the store, but we only transport items back and forth about once a month.
