Timed Bidding


If you are bidding in an timed auction, you can place a maximum bid and the system will bid on your behalf based on our bidding increments below at the lowest competitive price. Pricing increases (up to – but not beyond – your maximum bid) as other users bid on the work. Please note that maximum bid amounts are only executed if there is a competing bidder up to that amount, otherwise you will win the auction at a lower price..

Proxy Bidding (also known as Automatic Bidding) – Our automatic bidding system makes bidding convenient so you don't have to keep coming back to re-bid every time someone places another bid. When you place a bid, you enter the maximum amount you're willing to pay for the item. The seller and other bidders don't know your maximum bid. We'll place bids on your behalf using the automatic bid increment amount, which is based on the current high bid. We'll bid only as much as necessary to make sure that you remain the high bidder, or to meet the reserve price, up to your maximum amount. This happens in an automatic way, so it will often happen you pay less than what yo where willing to pay.


The auction costs are only 12 %, while at other places you usually pay around 30 % costs. We can do this because we have a small structure with not to high costs.

All winning bidders will get a winning notification and product will be added to their checkout page. Winners can enter their billing address and pay for item.

We do not collect credit card numbers in advance but any auction bid is final, failing to pay will ban you from our system.

Your won items will be carefully packed and send in house with tracking number door to door.

You will find inside your package a written description with picture from your authentic items as described, with David Norden's private opinion.

The bidding platform can be found HERE, where you can manage your bids, orders and personal information. A proxy bidding system is in place – enter your maximum bid, and the system will bid only as much of it as is necessary to win the lot. Commission rates are low – 12% – and postage is also managed in house to ensure reasonable costs: free to Belgium, 40 Euros to the rest of Europe, 80 Euros to the USA and 100 Euros to the rest of the world.

Happy bidding !
