We are happy to announce the return of the Dragonflight Auction in 2016. If you’ve got some old gaming stuff that you don’t want anymore, or if you’re looking for great deals on used or out-of-print games, be sure to leave some room in your convention schedule for this very popular event!
Auction intake will take place on Friday 1pm to 4pm, and Saturday 9am to 1pm. You will need to complete an auction intake form for each lot that you wish to sell. Auction intake forms will be available at the convention, or you can complete forms in advance using this link. Each lot must be boxed, bagged or tied securely so that no stray pieces can fall out or get separated from the lot. Please disclose if a game is missing components, and clearly denote any games intended as “for parts”. If you are selling more than 5 lots, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of the convention. Please note that copyrights will be respected, and no homemade copies will be accepted for sale. We reserve the right to refuse lots for sale for any reason.
You need to have a full 3-day badge to sell at the Auction.
This auction intake form is intended for Dragonflight attendees to complete in advance of the con. Users should download the form by clicking on the image, completing the top half, and the bottom half should be auto-populated. Users should print out the copy and bring it to the con. Please complete one form per lot. Auction intake staff will complete the internal-use only sections of both forms and give one copy to the seller as a receipt.
Dragonflight is happy to accept items for donation to the auction, but the items should be complete and in reasonably good condition. For donations, 100% of the auction fees go back to the Dragonflight organization. Donations are not tax deductible.
This year we will be offering selected items in a silent auction during the J, K and N time blocks (Sat 4:30-6:30pm; Sat 7pm-9pm; Sun 9-11am). Stop by the King County Rooms and bid on your favorites!
The Dragonflight auction will take place in the King County Room on Sunday, August 21st, from 9am to 1pm, or when all the lots have been auctioned off or rejected. This is a live auction, and you are obligated to pay for any item for which you place the highest bid. There will be a viewing of items prior to the auction. Caveat emptor: returns are not possible and all items are as-is.
In general, you are expected to pay for the item directly after each item is sold. However for established bidders who expect to purchase many lots, we can arrange for a tab to be paid with cash or a credit card. The tab must be paid in full immediately after the end of the auction. Contact the convention director by August 15 if you wish to arrange for a tab.
You need to have either a 3-day or Sunday-only badge to buy at the Auction.
After the Auction
Dragonflight retains 20% of the final selling price of each lot sold, out of which all applicable sales taxes are paid; resulting in approximately 10% of the price of the items sold at the auction being used to fund future activities of Dragonflight. Any money that is due to sellers will be remitted at the auction desk in the King County Room as soon as possible following the close of the auction. Payments at the convention will be in the form of cash; if you cannot pick up the money owed to you, a check will be mailed out shortly after the convention, and you should receive it within two weeks. Any questions or concerns regarding payment should be directed to the Dragonflight Treasurer and President.
The auctioneer is licensed and bonded with the State of Washington.
