Daily Household Items Auctions FAQs

What is the difference between the Daily Household Items Auction and the Online Specialty Online Auction?

The Specialty Online Auction is reserved for collectible or antique items and is held online. The Daily Household Items Auction sells pre-owned furniture, home goods, decor, small kitchen appliances, dinnerware, toys, shoes, clothes and miscellaneous items at greatly discounted rates. This auction is held on location at 815 33rd St., San Diego, CA 92102.

Is it easy to participate?
Yes. Before the auction, just put down a refundable $20 cash deposit at the cashier stand toward the entrance of the auction location. When the auction begins, pay attention. Bid by raising a hand or shouting “Yes” until you make eye contact with the auctioneer. If someone else counters your bid, you’ll have another opportunity to bid again. When you no longer want to bid, just shake your head or say “No” when the auctioneer returns to you. After the auction, you will either cash out and your $20 deposit will go toward your purchases or the deposit will be refunded.
What are the Terms of Sale?

All items are sold “as is, where is”—meaning you are responsible for checking the quality of the item during the preview (8:30 am – 9:00 am) and, if you purchase items during the auction, you’ll be required to pay for them and remove them from the premises immediately. There will be no refunds after the final bid is made.
