As a quarter auction participant/ player you’ll arrive to the location at least half an hour early, loaded with tons of quarters, and time to look around.
Paddles will be available for $2 each. You pick a numbered paddle(s) that you will use as your bidding number(s). The person selling the paddles will put a corresponding numbered chip into a bucket.
When the auction begins, you will use your quarters and paddle(s) to bid. Each item will have a retail value suck as, 1 quarter for an item with a $10-$20 value, 2 quarters for $21-30 value, and so on up to 4 quarters. The number of quarters asked for is determined by the vendor for their product.
Still muttering to yourself, “What the heck is a quarter auction?” To sum it up, quarter auctions are good, clean fun and they don’t require a lot of money to play!
