AAAWT, Inc Timed Auctions and Coming Soon, AAAWT Live Auctions
With the environmental issues and social realities of 2020/21, we found ourselves in need of an additonal dependable sales outlet for great art, antiques and antique arms to assist when a consignor requests rapid turnover or a quick sale in order to recycle their investment dollars. Using greatly reduced price targets, AAAWT will utilize a timed auction approach, and has selected LiveAuctioneer as our co-sponsor auction venue. Working together with the Liveauctioneer staff, we plan to make the most of their massive mailing lists, active buyer profile, and the established high volume auction venue. AAAWT's first auction is a selection of 100+ high quality items selected to sell at a fraction of retail. Opening prices will be enticing, and reserves, if any, will be at or less than the low sales estimate, and will be openly posted. Our goal is to sell, not exhibit. If an item is not sold, we will offer the item on a Buy It Now basis for a limited time, but make no mistake, anyone looking for the best deal will bid past our reserves while the item is open for bidding. Buy it Now prices will always be equal to or greater than auction reserves, no exceptions. Just as when sold on AAAWT.com , or in the W. Townsend shop, AAAWT's auction items are guaranteed as represented per the auction return terms. Bidders are encouraged to ask questions before bidding.

4. Auction Timing: Auctions run either 7, 10 or 14 days, and on the last day competitive bidding occurs. Any item that does not sell is marked with a Buy-It-Now price for two weeks. Anything not sold can be left for a follow-up auction, converted to our AAAWT Brokerage Program for Shop and AAAWT.Com site sale, or returned to you.
5.All items are RESERVED at a number you choose with our input, but the final # is yours to decide. When the item sells, uf we use the Jasper52 venue, Jasper52 charges the buyer a 15% Buyer's Premium. That's how they make their money. AAAWT will charge you a % of the hammer price depending on our contract. We;re working out details for AAAWT's Live Auctions coming soon. Lynn Hillier has earned and Auctioneer's License in Massachusetts, and we are preparing for Live Auctions
For Example: Item is Reserved a $100. Final bid (Hammer) is $200. Buyer pays 15% to Jasper52, or $30. AAAWT charges 20% or $40 of the Final Bid (Hammer) for our services, You end up with $160 of the $200 hammer price, with AAAWT doing all of the hard work!
