1. When is the 2019 Auction taking place?

The Auction is on April 6, 2019 from 10 AM to 4:20 PM. You can watch it on CCTV/Channel 8 if you are in Claremont and are a Comcast subscriber. Radio coverage will be once again on Q106 FM. You will also be able to bid online.

2. What's available this year?

We are in the process of building a wonderful array of items on which you can bid. Check the Boards tab to link over to the site where online bidding and all details will be posted once finalized.

3. I'll be out of town on the day of the Auction. How can I bid?

On Saturday, April 6, you may call us between 10 am and 4:20 pm to place your bids at 603-543-6500. Please note that this number will not be active except on Auction day. OR you can bid online starting right now through the web!

4. Can I place a bid here via the web?

Yes! We are once again excited to offer web bidding! You must have a bid number to bid online and you CAN use a pre-existing number once you have set up a password. Start here and good luck!

5. What are the accepted bid increments?

Bids are accepted only in whole dollar amounts. For the regular boards, bids can be raised one dollar at a time. For the Big Board, bids can go up in ten dollar increments. No cents will be used.

6. How can I pay for the items I win?

We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards.

7. How will I know if I have won?

All winners will be called shortly after each group ends. For this reason, we ask that the phone number you leave when you bid is one where we can reach you quickly. If we cannot reach you by the end of the auction day, we will be calling the next highest bidder. If you want your item, please give us a reliable phone number where we can reach you quickly. Please do not call in after your board concludes. The people taking bids are not able to see finished boards and won't be able to tell you if you won. You will receive a call back from another volunteer if you are a winner.

8. When and where can I pick up my items?

The auction concludes at 4:20 on Saturday, April 6. PICK UP TIMES will be Saturday from 5-6 PM, and All pick ups are at CCTV in Claremont, at the rear of the Sugar River Technical Center. Come down South Street, turn up Robert Easter Way as if going to Arrowhead, but go to the right to the rear of the tech center building. Please do not try to come pick up items outside of these posted times. The studio will not be open for pick up during the auction.


If you have any other questions, please feel free to email us at and we will be happy to get back to you. Our phone line is only active for the Auction days so you will not be able to reach us that way before the weekend of the Auction, or after the auction is over for the year.
