We are located one-half block north of Touhy Ave. at 7232 N. Western Ave., in Chicago, just south of Evanston. Western Avenue is a Street that runs North and South at 2400 West in Chicago.We Accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Cash, and Cashier's Check. Business and Personal Checks are Accepted from Established Customers with a History of Good Payments.For First-Time In-House Bidders, a cash deposit of $100, or a signed, blank Credit Card Imprint is Required from you in order to bid. A check will not be accepted for deposit. This is to insure you are serious about what you are bidding on, and not clowning around. The deposit is refundable if you don't buy anything, or will apply to your purchase. If you buy less than $100 worth of merchandise and you left a cash deposit, you will get the remainder back that you did not spend. In addition, we will need to make a copy of your driver's license or state I.D., and have you read, understand and sign a Paper with the terms of sale on it.A 17% Buyer's Premium will be added to the final bid price for all items sold in this auction that are bought in Person, or are bought through the Bidding Platform on our Website. For example, if you buy $100 worth of items, you will have to pay $117.00. An Additional Buyer's Premium of 5% (Total of 22%) will be added to all Purchases made through any Internet Bidding Platform not accessible through Direct Auction Galleries' website (Such as LiveAuctioneers, for example).All Purchases made by Credit Card will be subject to a 3% Buyer's Premium Administrative Fee. So if you are bidding In-House or through our website, and you Pay by Credit Card, the Buyer's Premium would be 20%. If you bid by LiveAuctioneers or another Non-Direct Auction Internet Bidding Platform, and you pay by Credit Card, the Buyer's Premium would be 25%.In addition, 10 1/4% Sales Tax will be charged for Items that are not shipped out-of-state, unless you present a current and valid dealer's resale number. We will keep your resale number on file, but you will need to bring us a new copy of it when it expires.Any Shipping fees incurred will be paid for by the Buyer. As a courtesy, we can bring Items to be Shipped to the local UPS Store for you.Check out times are as follows: For Jewelry and Coins, After all Jewelry and Coins have been Sold. All Other Items can be Picked up 4 hours after the Sale Time Begins. An Additional 5% will be charged to anyone who has not picked up and paid for their items after Seven Days (Late / Storage Fee).There is no smoking in the building, by order of the Chicago Fire Department.Snacks and pop are available at very reasonable prices in the office during the auction, in case you get hungry.
