Auction 2021

The auction has now passed. What a fantastic day with a good balance between buyers and sellers. Very few items were passed in. Our new cloud based computer system kept track of every item and enabled each participant to get a quick summary of sales and purchases at the end of the day.

Deceased estates. The auction provides a means of re-purposing items from deceased estates. In many cases families of deceased relatives do not know what to do with Uncle Charlie’s collection of old engines and aircraft.  Opportunity shops and second hand dealers have no understanding of model engineering, and families will have a natural reluctance to take stuff to the tip.  The TMAC annual auction is a means of finding a new owner who will share the enthusiasm that Uncle Charlie had.
