GROSS BIDDING ERRORS: If you mistakenly increase your own bid, place your bidder number in the bid field, or make a gross error; you must immediately contact our office by email at email@example.com or call 330-858-7019 Communication of the error does not in itself resolve the error. Ozzy’s Antiques and Collectibles will attempt to fix the bidding error.
AUTO EXTEND FEATURE: If an auction receives a bid in the last five minutes, the ending time for that auction will automatically be extended by five minutes and can continue indefinitely. Once five minutes have passed without any bidding, the item will close to additional bidding.
