Have you heard of Tophatter? Get your $10 credit!

Are you an auction enthusiast? Hate the crowds but love the action?

Let me introduce you to Tophatter
 
 
 
Tophatter is a fast-paced live online auction house where people from around the world can buy and sell in real time! 

Tophatter holds live online auctions every day. Auctions feature crafting supplies, electronics, bath and beauty, handmade and vintage items, clothing, and accessories to name a few. I even saw a piece of antique painted furniture!! Woohoo! Auctions are starting and wrapping up all throughout the day and night! If you can’t sleep and want to attend that 3am auction, it’ll be there waiting for you. Buyers and sellers can chat right on the screen while an auction is taking place. Many sellers even offer bonuses if prices reach a certain dollar amount. For example, in a supplies auction a seller might be auctioning off 50 shabby flowers with a starting bid of $5. If the auction reached $10 they would throw in an extra 50 flowers, $15 an extra 25, etc. (quantity and prices may not guaranteed, this is just an example). What a great incentive for buyers and sellers! Some auctions feature specific items like jewelry or supplies, others like the Daily Bazaar feature a mix of items. There is something for everybody!

After you sign up (which is free by the way), you can create an avatar that looks like you! While attending an auction you will see your avatar on the screen as well as the avatars as the other attendees! It’s just like being at a real auction.

The auctioneer will introduce each item and give a brief description of the item including opening bid price, shipping, and approximate retail value. The bidding is then opened and the action begins. Each new bid is announced and when the bidding stops the auctioneer gives a first and second call just like a live (in person) auction! If there are no additional bids the gavel pounds. There’s nothing like hearing that plunk when you are the high bidder!
