***PLEASE NOTE, several items were not picked up for the last auction. We have tried hard not to require credit cards to register and have NO buyers premium because of it. Unfortunately, if items continue to not be picked up, we will have to require bidder authentication to register. Thank you to all of our bidders who have helped us grow!
We now have a section of auction preview videos to help you see the items in our auctions before bidding. This is great if you are unable to come down and see them in-person during our preview days. You can find our January 2014 preview videos by clicking here, or select the Auction Preview Videos link above.

At A-Lot Sales we use very specific words in our descriptions to help communicate to you exactly what an item is. Here is a glossary of some terms and their definitions that we commonly use for clarity in our item descriptions:
Vintage — Certain items produced more than 25 years ago. Also used to describe an item form a particular generation that has come back into style. These could be based on our opinion, so it is a good idea to preview items and do your own research.
Antique — Items produced more than 100 years ago.
Collectibles — These items could be vintage or antique, but it will mean there are other items out there which this item would be added to, or to complete a set, such as certain flatware, dishes, toys, tools, signs, ceramics, etc.
Old — This typically means we couldn’t confirm the date but know it’s an older item from before 1979.
Primitive — Pottery, fossils, etc.
We use many professional resources to identify ages to the best of our ability, but we can be (and have been) mistaken. It is always a good idea to preview our items and determine ages for yourself.
