You can search for items on the Home Page or browse items by category. To place a bid you must register for an account.  If you wish to list your own private items for auction, you must be a member of TABA - simply register as a seller, and if your membership is not current you will receive an email on how to renew it and then you may list all the items you want. 

Auction - A Traditional Auction listing allows items to sell to the highest bidder. The start price is specified, and people bid against each other in specified bid increments. Traditional Auctions may have both a Reserve and Buy Now price.

Dutch Auction – A Dutch Auction is another name for a multiple item auction. These listings are for selling more than one identical item individually in an auction format. Rather than creating a listing for each item, they can be sold one at a time, with one listing. Buyers can submit a bid for one, or multiple items in a Dutch Auction listing. When there are multiple buyers for a Dutch Auction, the item’s final cost is the lowest successful bid by the highest bidders.

Fixed Price
- A Fixed Price listing does not allow bidding. The only acceptable price for the item(s) is specified. One item or multiple identical items can be sold with one Fixed price listing. Because there is no bidding on fixed priced listings, all items are Buy Now.

Buy Now - When viewing an item, you may see a Buy Now price. The Buy Now feature allows instant purchasing.  

Reserve - The Reserve price is the absolute minimum dollar amount that will be accepted for an item. Buyers are notified after placing their bid if it is below the Reserve price. If a Buyer's maximum bid is greater than the Reserve price, the Reserve is automatically met and that user is the high bidder. The ability to set a Reserve price is only available to Traditional Auctions .
