  • Start Price
    This is your suggested minimum bid. You may leave Reserve, Buy Now, or Allow Offers blank.

  • Feature auction
    You want to check this box so your item will appear on the auction home page.

    You may enter key words relevant to your item if you wish.

Once you have entered this information, click on Continue to upload your item photo. You may submit a photo at a later date but items without photos tend to get less attention. If you don't have a photo, you can always find a relevant image online. Such usage would be considered fair use as we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Click Review and Publish. Once you publish, you'll be sent an email indicating your item has been received and is being reviewed by the FAC Auction Committee. Once approved, your item will appear in the auction and you’ll in the running!

Now go ahead: register (or log in) and submit your item!
