Toronto. We have all been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Pharmaceutical houses world wide are rushing to find a suitable vaccine.
We are using remote meetings via ZOOM, adding pdf specials via MailChimp, and obeying the medical guidelines as much as possible. Only one PHSC in-person event has been held since the pandemic hit. That was our Trunk Sale at Trident Hall this past summer during the lull between the first and second wave.
Stereographica (Bryan and Page Ginns) of San Diego, CA are known by many collectors of photographica. Their latest online auction will take place tomorrow, October 24th with an online catalogue offered.
Our editor, Bob Lansdale shared this email he received from the Ginns. “Just a reminder that our sale of Antique Photographica ends this Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 3:00pm(1500hrs) Eastern Time (Noon Pacific Time).
“A ten minute countdown clock will be available towards the end of the sale. Once ten minutes has elapsed after 3:00pm without a bid, the sale is over. Each time a bid is placed after 3:00pm the clock will re-set and THE ENTIRE SALE WILL BE EXTENDED BY A FURTHER TEN MINUTES to give bidders the opportunity to respond. Please be advised that experience suggests that THE SALE COULD CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL HOURS BEYOND THE 3:00pm DEADLINE. ALL LOTS WILL REMAIN OPEN FOR BIDDING until the sale ends. Please remember to click the ?refresh? button on your browser to update the countdown clock.
“To check whether you are the high bidder, always go through the Sign-In procedure where your individual bidding page will be displayed. It will clearly show whether you are the high bidder or not. If there is an open box to bid on any given lot, you are NOT the high bidder. We would also remind everyone that there is a 10% buyer?s premium on the final price of each lot.
