50th Annual ARSC Conference (Bloomington, Indiana on May 11-14, 2016)

Silent Auction

The Silent Auction has become an eagerly anticipated event at our annual conferences. Each year, hundreds of items are offered for sale to the highest bidders. Books, CDs, vintage 78 rpm & LP records, music, memorabilia, audio products and services, and related items are all available, and incredible bargains can often be had! Bidding will close by noon on Saturday and you must be present to collect and pay for any items that you've won. This year we're adding a "Buy It Now" option for select items, which you may pay for at the registration desk at any time.

All ARSC members and vendors are encouraged to donate one or more items to be auctioned off to the highest bidder - this is a great way to support ARSC (a non-profit, 501.C.3 organization) and will make our exhibit room a lively place.

If you are willing to donate materials, please bring them with you to the conference, or ship them via UPS or Media Mail to Brenda Nelson-Strauss at the address below (please allow two weeks for delivery and label the box "ARSC Silent Auction"). Bid sheets should be inserted in each item; you may specify minimum bids. Unsold items will not be returned to donors unless you are available at the close of the auction to pick them up. If you have additional questions, please contact: Brenda Nelson-Strauss at
