Walk in our store and the Silent Auction items will catch your eye!
Built into the checkout counter is our well-lit display of carefully selected auction items. Generous donors provide Save & Serve with many intriguing collectibles. New items are added frequently. Whether it’s vintage hand tools, collectible glass or local pottery, designer handbags, great-grandma’s china or sleigh bells – you never know what might await your bid!
The Silent Auction involves competitive bidding to reach an item’s final value. It’s simple to register and get started bidding! We have a few rules to keep the process fair for everyone.
“You have the nicest thrift shop I have ever been in. It is well kept and the items are very clean and the displays are orderly. The Silent Auction items are exceptional and it is clear the community supports you by the valuable things they donate.” — Robin M., customer
