We’re excited to be offering a Bring and Buy (BnB) auction at the Breakout event. This feature will be held on Saturday, March 16th in the Simcoe & Dufferin Rooms and will run from 12 pm – 6 pm. For those who are unfamiliar with this auction format, the idea is that instead of having an auctioneer managing the individual lots for sale, there is a dedicated space set aside with all the items for sale on display. Any attendee can peruse the items and if they find something they would like to buy, simply pick it up and bring it up to the cashier to pay for it for the appropriate listed price.
Breakout has successfully run this style of auction now since it began in 2016 and it’s proven to be an extremely popular feature.
To avoid the risk of losing game pieces, sellers are expected to properly secure their games before putting them out to sell (e.g. tape, elastic band, etc.).
Seller Proceeds will be available at the end of the BnB; Sellers whose last name is A-L, proceeds and unsold games will be available between 6:30-7:30pm. Sellers whose last name is M-Z will have their proceeds and games available between 7:30-8:30pm. If you intend to leave the convention before 6:30pm, then you shouldn’t enter any items into the auction as we will NOT be paying out any proceeds from the sale prior to the scheduled times listed here. Any items not picked up by 9pm will become property of Breakout.
The costs: There will be a nominal fee paid to Breakout for each item or lot which sells amounting to $1.00 or 10% (whichever is greater).
