About the Event
This is a short & sweet, evening AUCTION (compared to our full-day auctions!) that is fun and light-hearted. Bring a summer treat and enjoy the dynamics of bargains and people watching of an (mostly) indoors auction. Great for first-time auctions goers or seasoned pros -- come early to grab your favorite chair!
What do you buy?The short answer is... everything! We have buyers for everything from microwaves to antiques and from DVDs to heavy equipment.
How do you buy?We can buy specific items (i.e. just the things we really want), specific rooms / buildings (i.e. everything in the shed), and whole estates (i.e. all contents but no permanent fixtures.) Price will vary based on the quantity and quality of the items as well as the amount of work (e.g. will things need to be cleaned in order to be sellable? how long will it take to pack up?).
If I want to sell something, what do I do?"You can always text a picture to (520) 709-8738 to get a quick, on the fly answer. When Bear is around, you are welcome to bring the items to one of our locations! If it is a lot of items or an entire estate, we are happy to set an appointment for a visit.
What do I need to do to be ready to sell?We know the seller is "ready to sell" when they are 100% clear on what is for sale and what is not. That often involves a bit of prep work on the part of the seller. Some of our past sellers have marked items that aren't available with blue tape or grouped them into one space.
Do I need to clean or organize the stuff that is for sell? Should I throw out the garbage?From our perspective, no! In fact, we prefer that you don't throw things away. Some things you may think of as worthless actually have value to us! For example, we use old photos as price tags. If you are comfortable selling it as is, we are happy to buy it as is! Also, please know that we have seen all kinds of environments...from hoarders to happy clutter to hyper tidy folks. We can handle whatever situation you have!
Can I donate to Bear's Vintage Thrift?Yes! We gratefully accept donations of all kinds and are blessed to pour back in the Willcox community in a variety of ways.
Do you do consignments?We tend to buy most of what we sell. There are a few exceptions so it is best to ask Bear! We do take consignments for the auction -- typically tools, equipment, vehicles and large items. Reach out for more information!
Where do you get your stuff?We buy from all over southern Arizona and in all sorts of venues! Since we have so many outlets to sell, we are buying daily!
