This maybe a stupid question but what ever.
I am currently 17 and was wondering if i can actually buy (or bid) any of the iteams that is being auction off without an adult?
Reason being, i might just be dropped off there, because sadly no one might not want to stay there for an hour or two with me.

Just wanted to know before being dissapointed at the auction.

THANKS.

Yes you can bid and buy. If you have never attended a live auction before, be aware that bidding live can sometimes result in a bidder spending more than then intended to pay for an item. All bidders must be able to pay for what they purchase during the auction.

I've seen buyers as young as 12 at the auctions, so no problem there, but as bob said it's easy to spend more than you'd planned so keep a tally to stay in your budget. Hope to see you there!

it's also easy to spend way more than an hour or two there :D
I have some scaley and a few not so scaley creatures living in glass houses full of water in the other room
