What You'll Get
With its perpetually rising stakes and diverse prizes, auctions are one of the most exhilarating economic activities outside of NASDAQ skydives and playing Monopoly with real money. Engage in a little mercantile one-upmanship with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $60 worth of auction items at The Auction Mill.
The Auction Mill’s lung-enhanced auctioneers broker impromptu price setting on an oft-changing inventory that runs the gamut from plasma TVs to self-propelled lawnmowers to autographed baseballs. A weekly auction takes place every Thursday evening and The Auction Mill conducts themed auctions on a regular basis, including the upcoming floral, wedding, and event-planning auction on Sunday, July 10. The Mill's fast-talking, gavel-banging arena has recently earned a big, loud "sold!" for treasures such as an ingredient-integrating KitchenAid 325-watt stand mixer ($75), Bose bookshelf speakers ($40), and an original Atari 2600 ($15). Entrance to the Auction Mill is free, allowing window-shoppers to observe the quick-draw wallet showdowns and vicariously experience the thrill of watching big spenders amp up the price tag on a 1924 Model T Ford ($2,600) or a rare photograph of Harry Truman holding aloft the Chicago Tribune's famously misprinted headline, "Dewey Eats Truman."
