True Blood Props and Costumes Auction
August 12, 2014 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
SceenBid to Auction Many True Blood Items:
Well, here’s your chance!
ScreenBid is auctioning off many items that were used on the set of HBO’s True Blood over the last seven seasons. Items will go to auction from the 20th August 2014 and conclude on the 25th of August 2014. There are 54 items in total as part of this rare opportunity to obtain genuine prop and costume items from True Blood.
Details of the auctioning process are below:
Q: How do you get all these items?
A:ScreenBid conducts auctions on behalf of studios and producers who want to make props, wardrobe items, set decoration and other items available to fans and collectors.
Q: But how do I know it’s authentic?
A: Because ScreenBid conducts auctions on behalf of studios and producers, everything we sell comes direct from the source. And every ScreenBid item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the studio or producer, guaranteeing the authenticity of your purchase.
To ensure you know exactly who certifies authenticity, ScreenBid posts that information on every item’s individual page.
Q: Will I know if someone has outbid me?
A: You sure will. We’ll email you.
Q: Can the computer bid for me?
A: Sort of. You can set a maximum bid – some people call it a “proxy bid” on any item. If someone bids higher than your earlier bid, the computer will automatically increase your bid until you either win or reach your maximum. Other bidders won’t know that you’ve placed a maximum bid. They’ll just know that they have been outbid.
Q: How do I know if I’ve won?
A: You can watch the auction as it closes – it’s really interesting. But you don’t have to. ScreenBid emails all winners as soon as their item closes.
Q: I won! Now what?
A: Well congratulations! The next few steps are easy – and they’re up to you.
You’ll receive an email outlining what to do. We will bill the credit card we have on file for you after the entire auction has ended. If you’d rather pay by cash, check, wire transfer, or PayPal, we’re happy to accommodate you. When you receive your invoice, let us know immediately that you want to pay by a method other than credit card. We’ll take care of it.
Q: Will you ship my item to me?
A: While you are welcome to make any delivery arrangements you’d like, we are happy to have our shipping department help you. Whether we ship or you make other arrangements, we include a $14.95 handling fee on all items ($24.95 for items shipped outside the United States), and large items may require an additional fee.
Our shipping department sends all items individually — one item per package. If you have us ship for you, we’ll send you a tracking number as soon as your package leaves our facility. To protect you, we insure all items for the full amount you pay. Your invoice will list the cost of that insurance.
Q: I live outside the United States. Can you help me with shipping?
There’s a handling charge of $24.95 for international shipments, and you will, of course, be responsible for any tariffs, duties, import fees or other requirements imposed by your government.
