Live Video
Our auctions are broadcast live on the internet using streaming video and audio. Yes, we are actually there conducting the auction in our auction rooms, and you can watch us in action. Our video broadcast includes extra information and running commentaries by toy experts. And, of course, you will be able to see the items we are offering for sale.

This is not just an internet auction. The items can be viewed at our Auction Rooms on the Saturday before the auction and at other times by appointment, and from 3:00pm on the day of the auction. Come along and see – and feel – the items for yourself. You are also welcome to attend the auction and participate as a bidder, or as part of our audience.

Auction Dates
Our First Monday Toy Auction is usually held, naturally, on the first Monday of each month. But occasionally we have to move it to the second Monday when we have other commitments. Also we do not hold an auction on the first Monday of January, since everyone is still in holiday mode.

Buyer's Premium
A 13.5% buyer's premium applies to all successful bids (includes GST). An online bidding fee of 5% is charged by our online auction hosts Invaluable and AuctionZip for successful bids placed with them (total fees for online bidders 18.5%).

Postage & Handling
We are happy to package and send goods anywhere in the world, and we charge a small handling fee to help cover our costs. We keep this fee as low as we can, but we have no control over the postage charges. International postage is based on weight, so please take this into account when you are placing bids.

Please note that all prices advertised and all bids submitted are in Australian dollars (AUD).

Auction Rooms

Our regular auctions and viewings are conducted in our Auction Rooms at The Gearin in Katoomba.

You are welcome to attend our public auctions, either to bid or simply to watch. We are just across the road from Katoomba station and there is plenty of parking nearby.
