Cornelius Silent Auction

Antique lovers, treasure hunters and memorabilia collectors will delight in the recurring silent auction hosted by our Cornelius ReStore.

The Cornelius ReStore was one of the first ReStores in North Carolina to offer silent auctions. Generally, donations of collectibles and unique items—antique furniture, vintage housewares, handmade quilts, signed books, etc.—are difficult to price. We present a silent auction of these items once per month. The auction generally opens the first Wednesday of each month, with bidding closing at 2 p.m. the Wednesday two weeks following. This schedule may be adjusted for holidays–please check the schedule at right to confirm dates.

Interested bidders write the amount of their bid on a bidding sheet. Then, it’s as simple as registering a phone number with the cashier. (Sorry, no online or telephone bids are accepted.) Bidders need not be present at the auction close to win, but sealed bids are accepted during the last half hour of the auction for items with multiple bidders present. If a bidder is not present, but has the highest bid, we will call you and notify you to pick up your treasure.
