Estate Sales Live Auctions

TWO WEEKS …AUCTION COMING UP SOON!!

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THIS PROPERTY PRIOR TO THE PREVIEW AND AUCTION DATES! FAMILY IS STILL LIVING THERE. 

AUCTION ADDRESS:

1233 Whisky Jack Road, Sandpoint, Idaho

PREVIEW AND REGISTRATION: FRIDAY, APRIL 15, noon to 5

AUCTION AND REGISTRATION: APRIL 16, 9 to ?

What a great auction it is turning out to be.  Fabulous, interesting and unique items are being discovered everyday.

Just a few house keeping items on this auction:

We will not be listing items for sale on a pdf as we usually do.  This is a one day auction.  The upper part of the property will be done first.  This will include the shop, the pole barn structure at the top of the property and the items surrounding those two buildings. The lower part of the property with some of the cabs, hoods, a combine, misc., drip line, etc. will be after that.

The shop will be broken up in two formats.  The tables in the middle will be a “your choice” format.  The highest bidder will get to pick as many of the items they would like at the price they bid per item. So, when you are the winning bidder you get to choose as many items you want from that table at your bid price per piece. I will then ask if anyone else wants any item from that table at that bid price. I will then auction the items again and the process will go like that for three bids. On the fourth go around I will sell everything left on the table as one lot to the highest bidder.

The items around the room are individual lots.  Please be aware that this is an absolute auction (sold at any price it will bring) and that it is an “as is where is” auction.  Once you are the winning bidder you are responsible for that item and will be responsible for the payment of that item. No guarantees of any kind are made.  We will have staff on hand to help move your items to a “holding area” for their safety when it is possible to do so, but ultimately your item once won is your responsibility.

Some of the pictures are up and we are working hard to get the April 16th auction together.  Just a reminder the address of the sale will be listed the week of the sale.  Parking attendants will be on hand to help facilitate the parking. Please listen to them as we are trying to put a lot of cars and trucks, some with trailers, up close to the actual auction.  This is a walking auction. Wear your boots, bring an umbrella and watch the weather reports.  Our food vendor will be on hand for the day.

If you decide to bid on that vintage/antique truck cab and you did not bring the appropriate vehicle to haul it away, no worries, we will set up a day the next week for you to return to pick it up.

I know many of you like to bring your fury family members, however, this is an auction with cars and rigs with trailers everywhere and lots of people walking around.  PLEASE LEAVE YOUR FURY FAMILY MEMBERS AT HOME or in the truck cab with your windows cracked.  I do not want any animal or person hurt. We at JKern Auction Group have 8 fury family members of our own and would be devastated if your family member was hurt or killed at one of our sales.

Cash, credit or certified funds are accepted unless prior arrangements have been made. Keep checking back to the website, we will add pictures as we move along over the next couple of weeks.This is going to be fun!! It will be a beautiful day to attend this unique and exciting auction!

We decided to select the best of the items that were left yesterday at half price.  There will be a red slash across the original price.  At 1 p.m. those with the red slash will become half off again.

FLASH SALE

Many of you know we had a house fire back in March of 2021.  We are desperate for space to hold our belongings, for a short time, that were not lost in that fire, in order for us to move forward in the rebuild. So, I have come up with an exciting way to spice up your winter and free up my shop for a short term space for my own personal use.

Hence, the Flash Sale!!!!!

AUCTION BUCKS/ESTATE SALE BUCKS

We are excited to implement this exciting plan.  So many of you over the years have referred us to your friends and family. Because of this wonderful act we have been able to keep our cost of advertising for sales down to a minimum.  Word of mouth has done the job!

We feel like those who are doing this should receive something for their kindness.  I always ask a potential client how they heard about us.  If you choose to share our company with a friend or family member and they book and complete a sale you will receive $250 in what we are calling Auction Bucks or Estate Sale Bucks. Once the auction or estate sale has been paid out to the client we will then hold your name on file with $250 for you to spend at further auctions or estate sales.  All referred sales must have been completed and finalized in order to have your auction bucks applied to your account.  All Auction Bucks or Estate Sale Bucks must be spent within one year of receiving them.

 

GIVING BACK

Last but not least, our company is going to team up and support three local non-profits in the Sandpoint/Bonner County area.  We will be donating 5% of our profits from our sales and auctions during the 2022 calendar year to the following:

Kinderhaven

Kinderhaven is very close and dear to my heart.  I am a lover of children.  Having had six children my own and eight grandchildren, four exchange students and multiple others that needed homes when  theirs was not a good place to be, during my life I have a soft spot for the kids who come through Kinderhaven.

In the past I have done four Community Assistance League (CAL) Kinderhaven Trees for the Festival of Trees.  Those trees raised near top dollar for Kinderhaven and People’s Choice for CAL. This event was always a highlight of the Christmas season and we all look forward to it coming back “in person”. The pandemic has affected the Festival of Trees the last two seasons making it take place virtual.  We would like to donate to this non-profit in order to help raise much needed funds not raised by the Festival of Trees.

Senior Center and Daybreak

I personally love the Senior Center in Sandpoint.  If you have not gone in there or have personally used the facility, you should make time to do so.  It is such a wonderful place for our aging population to have.  There are many activities and outings available for our seniors, as well as, delicious daily lunch served Monday-Thursday and breakfast of Fridays.

We personally use Daybreak, a memory care respite provider, to help us with my mother-in-law.  To her we call it “club” and she truly enjoys going and looks forward to her time with her friends.

Donations are important to this non-profit.  Donations help “fill in the gaps” that sometimes lag between grants and other funding.  We are happy to help.

Last but not least…..

Panhandle Special Needs (PSNI)

PSNI is very near and dear to my heart.  I am one of the lucky ones in life that was blessed with a child with Down Syndrome and Autism.  Caleb is now 30 years old and some of you may have seen him helping me at some of our events.  He is such a blessing to us and a delight to be around.  Next time you see him say hello…it will make your day!

Anyway, we are excited to donate to this wonderful non-profit that provides services to clients and their families with disabilities in Bonner County.  We are hoping to help donate towards a new facility for the wonderful organization.  The Cottage thrift store located next door to PSNI helps fund the non-profit, however, they have had an increase in rent and really could use a boost from our community.

Donation Jars

We will be having donation jars at all our events this year to help raise funds for these organizations.  No pressure will ever be put on any one to donate.  If you feel inclined to do so, we appreciate it.

 

AND A DRUM ROLL PLEASE…

Our next big adventures are in the works.  We have a client that is ready to have a sale and is just waiting for the COVID numbers in Bonner County to drop.  This is a really nice sale and you will all want to be part of it.  Stay tuned for updates of this possible March or April sale.

April or May is looking up for a one day auction.  We will have specifics on that as it moves forward in the process and the snow recedes!

Save this date…July 21,22,23 and 24

We have a fabulous auction coming for you in 2022!! This one will be located in the Selle Valley and will have it all!! If your planning your vacation plans now for this summer you will not want to be out of town for this one!! The whole “shibang” is up for sale.  Years of collecting, tools, sportsman equipment, household, shop and barn items,  antiques, guy stuff and gal stuff; everything under the sun will be available for purchase.  We will start putting the sale together in June so look forward to those pictures!! Advertising will start early. Please share this information with all your family and friends.Thursday, July 21 will be the preview and auction July 22-24.

 

I know this was a long post.  Thank you for letting me pour it all out in one post.  I like to keep things shorter, but so much has happened!  We look forward to seeing you at the FLASH SALE, February10-12.

Blessings,

Julia
