What is Bid & Buy for BIMA?

Bid & Buy for BIMA is TWO online fundraisers in one!

  • AUCTION – Items labeled with “BID!” in the title are up for auction. The highest bidder at the end of the auction (October 11 at 5pm) will win the item. Don’t want to get into a bidding war? Secure your win with the “Buy It Now” option on every auction item!
  • COLLECTORS MARKETPLACE – Items labeled with “BUY!” in the title are for immediate purchase. No bidding necessary—you snooze, you lose. These items are deeply discounted below the estimated value and perfect for the art lover at every budget!

Do I have to register to look at the available items?

No. But not taking the time to register right away could cost you a “buy it now” opportunity in the auction or an amazing deal in the collectors marketplace. We suggest registering right away!
