 How the auction works: In order to bid on an item, you need to register at the Adam Marshall Auction Website for the Oktoberfest auction. All of the items on the auction have staggered closing times. The items are spaced 20 seconds apart. The first item closes at 12:00 noon, the second item at 12:00 & 20 seconds, the third item at 12:00 & 40 seconds and the fourth item at 12:01. The very last item closes at 1:00 pm. Items will extend if a bid is placed on that item within the final 2 minutes. This can happen multiple times if bidders continue to bid on that item. When there are no bids on the item in the last 2 minute and the countdown clock goes to 0, the item is sold. To find your invoice: Login to the bidding website. Click Account at the top right. Then click the grey Invoices Tab. 

 May the items bring you joy while the bidding spreads our gifts in Christian fellowship.
