HOW TO BID
As each item is presented live on-air, watch for the items you like and phone in quickly to place your bid. Bids will be taken by viewers calling in by phone as well as from the in-studio audience on Friday and Saturday, so be ready to act fast!
We will have a total of 10 phone bidders to take your call and bid with you. If you don’t get through, hang up and keep trying as many bidders on the phone will drop out as prices rise, thus freeing up the phone for you to call and bid.
Pre-Bidding is allowed during the Free Art Showcase Preview on Friday, February 15 from 5-8 p.m. and Saturday, February 16 from 12-3 p.m.
