Auction Rules and Payment 2019

We would like to encourage you to register in advance of the evening and obtain your bidding number. This will speed things up on the night, and also allows you to buy online in advance in the ‘BUY IT NOW’ section. Follow the link from our website to do this.

The ‘BUY IT NOW section
‘BUY IT NOW’ allows you to buy your lot outright in advance of the auction. This feature allows parents and friends who cannot attend on the night to participate and support our auction. ‘BUY IT NOW’ closes at 3pm on Thursday 14th June.
Items purchased in this way will need to be paid for within three working days of purchase and before 3pm on Thursday 14th June. Payments are to be made in cash or cheque payable to ‘St Vincents Primary School’ and handed in at the school office in an envelope clearly labelled ‘SVPA Auction Buy it Now’. If posting please send to: SVPA Auction Buy it Now, St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School, St Vincent Street, London W1U 4DF. Items not paid for in the required time will be released.
