*THIS IS A VERY UNIQUE AUCTION - PLEASE READ SOME IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Joe Ley Antiques has been in business for 56 years. It is a Louisville Icon and we are honored to conduct this auction. Joe Ley will remain open for now as we are working through the Phases. There is not a specific close date for the store, so we are working room by room to liquidate the inventory. The majority of these items are antiques and collectibles and older. Wear is consistent with age to these pieces. These are used pieces Joe has been collecting for years. Please try to attend the Open House to see these items in person.
*ITEM DESCRIPTION/INFORMATION: All the lamps have been plugged in with a light bulb and turned on if possible. If it didn't light, it will be noted in the description. If nothing is mentioned, it is safe to assume it lit up when we plugged it in and turned it on.
*DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF ANTIQUES at Joe Ley, there is no "Antiques" category. They are broken down into more specific categories. If you're looking for an antique, simply type in "antique" in the search bar as that word was used in the item description.

Registration: Registration is free but does require several important pieces of information. Bidders must be registered with a full name, address, and telephone number. An email address is also required so bidders may be sent winning bid notifications and auction invoices. Information from either a MasterCard or Visa is to be held on file. This information is obtained to deter defunct bidding and to facilitate payment once you receive your invoice. The account will be charged in the event that an item has been unpaid after the allotted time for payment has passed. Registration may only be completed with an acknowledgment that the bidder has read and understood all terms and conditions for the sale and online bidding.

How to Register for First Time Bidders: Click on “Register to Bid”, at the next page click on “Sign Up”, and then complete the information requested. Upon successful completion you will receive notice that you are approved to bid.

If You Have Already Registered: If you have already registered and been approved, you simply click on the “Register to Bid” link and on the next page, click on “Sign In”.

Description of Items: All descriptions and information are believed correct, but are not guaranteed and as such the Auctioneers, Wardlow Auctions, Inc., and/or the Seller shall not be held liable for inaccuracies in the information. It is the Bidder's responsibility to obtain or verify, prior to bidding, any information they consider critical to their decision to purchase. Preview times are available for potential bidders to physically inspect the items. All bidders are encouraged to inspect and research all aspects of the items, descriptions and information provided to their complete and full satisfaction prior to bidding. The items are being sold “as-is” “where-is” with no warranties or guarantees of any kind including merchantability and/or fitness for particular purpose.

Bidding: Online bidding is to be understood as a binding contract. Bids will be taken with the understanding that the bidder will honor their winning bid with sufficient funds including all applicable taxes and fees. Do not bid if you do not intend to pay. Notification of winning bids will be sent via email along with an auction invoice within 6 hours of the auction’s close. Be sure to check your "Junk" email folder if you do not receive your invoice within that time frame. Bidding can be made using two methods on our website- by clicking on the “Bid $$$” button or by clicking on the “Set Max” button to establish your maximum bid. Bidding increments are pre-set and vary in relationship to the value of the item.

“Set Max” Feature: This feature does your bidding without the bidder having to constantly view, log in, and bid on an item. Setting a maximum online is much like coming to a live auction with a preset spending limit in mind. The program will bid for you, in the prescribed increments, and only up to your set maximum bid for the item. For example: assume an item is currently at $200 with Bidder A having the winning bid, and Bidder B wants to place a bid and is willing to spend as much as $400 for the item. If Bidder B places a maximum bid of $400, the price of the item rises only to the next required bid increment or in this case $220. Your Maximum bids are kept confidential and not available for other bidders to see. Any bidder can raise or lower a maximum bid at any time prior to the close of the auction.

Sales Tax: All sales are subject to 6% Kentucky Sales Tax.

Close of Bidding: The bidding will begin to close at 7:00 PM (Eastern time zone), Monday, December 9, 2019. For your convenience, the closing of items will be on a staggered basis of 10 items every minute. For example, items 1-10 will begin closing at 7:00, items 11-20 will begin closing at 7:01, items 21-30 will begin closing at 7:02, etc. The closing of some items may be extended in the event of last minute bidding. See paragraph below regarding the Extended Ending feature.

Extended Ending: All items in the auction will be subject to an extended ending, whereas at the close of the auction, any bidding activity on an item within 3 minutes of the closing time will automatically extend the bidding for 3 more minutes past the time of the last bid. The bidding on that lot will continue to remain open in 3 minute intervals as long as there is bidding activity within 3 minutes of the previous bid. Once there is no bidding activity within the 3 minute period, the bidding on that item will close. For example, if a lot is supposed to close at 7:00 PM but a last minute bid is placed at 6:59 PM, bidding will be extended until 7:02 PM. If another bid is placed on an item at 7:01 PM, bidding will then close at 7:04 PM, unless subsequent bids are placed.

Penalties: Any bidding found to be fraudulent and/or negligence to provide proper payment in the allotted time will result in all appropriate legal action. Any invoice not fully and properly paid for in the allotted time will be charged to the credit card account presented at registration and the items forfeited. Delinquencies will be noted and will prevent the individual from participating in any further live or online auctions conducted by Wardlow Auctions, Inc. Wardlow Auctions, Inc. retains the right to prevent anyone from participating in this and future online auctions who does not abide by the terms and conditions of the auction or whose actions are not in the best interest of our client, the Seller.

Auctioneer's Right to Bid: In accordance with KRS330.220(6)(a), it is hereby disclosed that, with permission from the seller, the auctioneer and any auction staff members reserve the right to bid.
