Have you ever attended one?
Have you ever bought anything from one (live or TV)?

i have used ebay, and am on Quibids (where you pay per bid as well as for the item you 'win' at a really low price)

My brother got his car at an auto auction, and I have been to one estate sale, that was in auction format!
It's not my preferred method of shopping, but you can occasionally find great deals.

I use eBay a lot, to buy and to sell, and I've been to car and antique auctions but haven't bought anything at them.

I've never been to a live auction, although it's something I want to do sometime.

I've bought things on Ebay in the past and I've gotten things through silent auctions at fundraising events.

As a side note, anyone watch the show Auction Kings? I love that show!

I've attended lots, but I've never bought anything. My parents go to them all the time, and my dad did an auctioneering course (he can talk super fast haha!).

I went to an estate one with my Mum about 10 years ago. I didn't bid on anything though.

I've considerd trying Quibids, how do you find it?

I've only ever shopped on ebay.
