The Auction Section at StarTribune.com is a searchable database where
local professional auctioneers showcase items available in upcoming
auctions, live and online. Auctions allow the buyer to set the price
by bidding competitively against other bidders interested in the same
item. The last bidder willing to pay the most for that item is the
winner. Auctions are added daily so you never know what you will
find. Check back often and search for your treasures!

For bidding you’ll be directed to the auctioneers’ websites. Not
