Default Hudson Valley New York Auction May 12

Will Hudson Valley post some pics as the rows fill this week and/or list some of the major items here or on their website? I think they have done so in the past.....

I'm taking a couple of loads up tomorrow--I'll update this thread with pictures of the interesting "stuff" as the week progresses.

The annual auction is a really fun event--there is no buyers commission and sellers only pay 15% on their consignments. Auctionwise, the day is a real bargain. There are two auction rings going all day long (and I mean all day LONG). The auction profits go to the Hudson Valley Old Time Power Association--all the volunteers do a wonderful job. This year they will be accepting credit cards for payment. I'm always amazed at the stuff that gets consigned --engines, parts, tractors, tools, antiques--it seems like the supply ought to dry up after a few years, but they still get over 2000 items consigned every year.

Also, something near and dear to me, the food is great--breakfast starts at around 7Am and good food is available all day.

I haven't missed an auction there in over 30 years--it is still a fun day --thanks to all the volunteers that make it a great event.

This morning we took 3 trailers in. My items were marked around number 1500. I have never seen the field fill up so fast. As of noon they were over the hill. Forgot the camera. Quite a few engines this year, a lot less junk. They are really trying hard to keep the yardsale stuff to a minimum. See you on saturday..

I am planning on attending this event. I have never been to this or any other auction. Do they give you a listing of the lots when you register so you know what the inventory is or do you just have to walk around and see for yourself? also do they sell in lot number order so you know approximately when an item you are interested in will come up? Lastly, with 2 auctioneers working do you need a second person in case 2 of your items are up at the same time?
Thanks

No list is available. I go, the afternoon before to scope out things. Tough, with 2 auctioneers going, to be sure you'll be at an item you want, when it comes up. Not in lot number order, just done row by row. Ed

Yes- walk around and see for yourself.
A buddy is nice for simultaneous bidding- and also to go and fetch the truck and help you load and get food and run for beer in the middle of the afternoon. The best buddy is in the form of a girl that distracts others so you can get a bargain!!

I love this auction!

This auction is a lot of fun and you will enjoy it. You will cover about 10 miles in the course of the day. Once you identify those items that you are interested in then it's a waiting game. Sometimes the wagon making it's way down the rows is painfully slow. Plenty of time for visiting with fellow junk collectors or have a tailgate lunch. They;ve got a pretty good breakfast if you beat the crowd.
If you buy a heavy item don't forget to tip the guys who load for you.
Bring your raingear no matter what the forecast is......

Thanks for all the hints, I am looking forward to the auction. I am going to make a trip up Friday to look around, then depending on what I am interested in will bring the truck or truck and trailer on Saturday. Will I be able to register Friday afternoon to buy on Saturday or will I have to register Saturday morning?

Do they at least organize the rows by types of equipment or is it all mixed up?

A couple more pictures on Facebook

One more question, do they have reserves on the lots or do they sell them for any bid no matter how low?
Thanks

"Stevenkd5017",
The only organization is in the order in which consignments were received --therefore it is all mixed. Patience is a virtue (Ya gotta take the sweet with the sour.)

I have never seen reserves on lots--I have seen the auctioneers skip a lot if they couldn't get a $2 bid on something that was obviously worth a lot more. the moral of that story? If you want an item, don't try and wait too long.

The auctioneers are volunteers and they do an EXCELLENT job. For any folks going to an auction --Keep your bidding number handy! Nothing irritates an auctioneer (and auction attendees) like someone who wins a bid and then fumbles around and can't find his bidding number.

Saturday is looking like a beautiful day, but I will be there , regardless, and with a visible bidding number.
