I have found that internet shopping saves me tons of time, gas, and money. There are always amazing deals to be found online. One thing I love is a good online auction. I have been a fan of auctions for years. I have scored so many insane deals shopping auction-style, including my wedding rings that are appraised for 35K. (We paid 10K! ) We also get a lot of our electronics and clothing auction style.
We’ve just discovered an addictive new auction site called Tophatter, where buyers bid for sellers’ unique goods in fast-paced virtual auction rooms. From crafts and DIY projects, to antiques, jewelry, home décor and much more, there’s no limit to what you can discover on Tophatter.
Tophatter offers real time bidding, with an actual auctioneer and a gaggle of bidders surrounding him. You can ask questions, bid, and win, in this fun, fast-paced auction house. This moves very quickly, and reminds me a lot of the show Auction Hunters. But in online, simulated form, of course! Most auctions last a mere 2 minutes. Talk about quick!
This is an interactive auction site where you can find...well, just about anything! I have personally noticed a lot of handmade items, so if you're an etsy addict, chances are, you'll love Tophatter, too! There are also plenty of home decor items, some electronics, and more!
Check out this brief video that shows how it works in more detail:
Bidding is simple, and just takes a click. You simply click the "Bid" button, and your offer will be $1 higher than the last bid. Again, this is very fast-paced, so you may need to stay on top of your game, especially during the final moments of the auction.
