Event Details

Member’s Annual Mineral Auction.

The May Meeting will be held in the clubrooms of the Parramatta and Holroyd Lapidary Club

At 73 Fullagar Road, Wentworthville, at 7.30 pm on the 3rd of May.

The program will comprise the Annual Member’s Mineral Auction.

The proceedings will start at the normal time of 7.30pm and will probably last through to between 9.00 and 9.30 pm. At the commencement of the Meeting there may be a few announcements but then the entire evening will be devoted to the Auction. There will be a fifteen-minute break about half-way through the evening. Members with specimens that they wish to auction are invited to select up to about a dozen and provide a list up to Wednesday the 1st of May, although ideally before then. The sale information lists should be sent to Haley Bambridge on so that a combined list of Auction specimens can be compiled and distributed. Vendors will be given lot numbers to add to their specimen labels.

Response from members submitting lists of specimens to auction has been slow but there is still time for members with material that can be sold to select some specimens and send in even a short list, up to Wednesday evening. Items for auction without lists having been provided could also be brought in to the Meeting which if time permits, can be added to the end of the sale list.

Individual specimens or trays of minerals can also be sold by silent auction. Members can bring in a tray to leave for display on a table accompanied by a bid form which will be provided. The bid forms would be checked at the end of the evening with the highest bidders purchasing the tray or specimen/s. There would be no need to notify the Society in advance about trays being brought in for sale as they will not be listed.

Members arriving for the Auction and wishing to bid for any items should acquire a bidding number label at the reception table and write their names with their bidding number on a record sheet. Transactions must be conducted entirely between the vendor and purchaser. The Society does not take any commission on the sales and would not enter into any transaction arrangements. Payments would need to be made by cash or cheque and not by credit card, (unless a vendor is able to supply a card reader).
