Toys of Times Past makes it easy for the buyer by offering multiple options for bidding. Buyers from around the world will have an opportunity to bid live online or absentee. All auctions are cataloged and feature detailed descriptions and multiple photographs. Bidding starts as soon as the online catalog is posted on the website.

LIVE ONLINE BIDDING: An online only auction takes place solely online. Online bidding and catalogs are available at, Liveauctioneers and Invaluable/Auctionzip. Catalogs are posted about 3 weeks prior to the auction end date for bidders to place bids. During this period of open bidding, bidders are able to see the current high bid on each lot.  You may place higher bids during this time. On the auction end date, the auction will go LIVE ONLINE ONLY for bidders to bid live during the online only auction until it has ended.  Bidders are automatically informed live during bidding  if they are the high bidder or if they have been outbid by another competing bidder. 

ABSENTEE BIDDING: Bidders may place absentee bids for the items they are interested in online. Your bids  will be executed on your behalf during the live auction. For example: If lot #10 has a bid of $50 and your absentee bid is $100, Your bid will competitively place bids for you, up to your $100 absentee bid.
