Items are described to the best of our ability, but are not guaranteed. There is always a matter of interpretation. Please consider and understand that many of the items we sell are estate pieces, and in used condition and will show general signs of wear. Bidder inspection is encouraged. We are happy to closer inspect any item for you or send you more photos/video if needed - check us out on FB Live Video during preview dates. In some circumstance we can also video chat with you. All extra inquiries for closer inspection must be received before preview date.
Our auction software can not retract bids, so bid accordingly.

Our website runs auctionworx software by Rainworx. Since 2002, they have been a global leader in the online auction software industry. We are constantly revising & updating our website to better suit our clients. We appreciate any and all feedback.
If any item has a reserve, it will note this in the description. We do not utilize the software’s automatic reserve system because it limits our ability to sell the item if a seller decides they will take less. This means you may see the lot say “No reserve,” by the bidding box yet the description states there is a reserve. We do not and will not disclose the reserve to any buyer. We actively work with our sellers to ensure they are ready to sell and have a reasonable market value reserve for any item.
Living Tributes Sale Barn, LLC. retains the right to govern goods and services sold to clients and to maintain the level and integrity of our business. Living Tributes Sale Barn has the right to terminate the auction at any time; withdrawal from sale of any item; to sell at this auction items not listed; to group one of more lots into one or more selling lots or to subdivide into two lots or more selling lots. The auction company also reserves the right to sell all of the items listed in bulk.
We use shared servers which may encounter downtime and browsing speed issues. To avoid missing out, we strongly recommend that you place your bid early in the auction. The proxy bidding system will not reveal your maximum bid amount to other bidders, and will place bids at the minimum increments as needed during the progress of the auction.
In the rare case of internet downtime problems or extreme site slowness near the conclusion of the auction, we may re-open the bidding and and/or extend the auction. This occurs very rarely. In this case only, any emails notifying winning bidders of auction results are null and void for those affected auctions.

Our Bid Increments
For Prices at or AboveBid Increment
We will ship any item (except furniture & guns) under 150 lbs for actual shipping cost PLUS handling fees based on table below. Handling fees offset packaging material costs (bubble wrap, boxes, tape, etc) & time spent hauling, loading, unloading & packing items. Please contact us at least 24 HOURS PRIOR TO AUCTION PREVIEW DATE for shipping estimates on specific items if interested. We may use USPS, FedEx or UPS when shipping items. Tracking will be provided after item is shipped and your card on file will be charged. Delivery Confirmation Signature and Insurance may be required on certain items depending on price/fragility. We regularly ship items from our ebay store and we can assure you our shipping skills are above most. Shipping costs will be billed separately and charged to credit card on file. Please allow for 5-7 business days AFTER last auction pick up day for any item(s) being shipped.
Handling fees are per “lot” as follows -
“Lot” weighs less then 5 lbs = $5 handling fee
“Lot” weighs 5-20 lbs = $10 handling fee
“Lot” weighs 20+ lbs = $15 handling fee
We will do our best to combine shipping when feasible. Anything over 150 lbs or excessive size will have to be picked up locally or arranged through a 3rd party shipping company. You may consider asking for quotes on Roadie or Uship. Fastenal also handles large items. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to arrange, although we may assist when needed.
