Bids are to be in $1 increments and the first bid must meet the minimum bid listed. The interim bid amounts will be updated daily on the City of Augusta’s website www.augustamaine.gov , under the Fort Western tab. Most starting bids are one quarter of the item’s value; however, some higher priced items (and items with a direct cost to the fort) start at half the item’s value.
At the close of bids on Wednesday, December 20th, bid winners will be posted on-line and individually notified by the end of Thursday, December 21st. Arrangements need to be made to pick-up their winnings before January 31st, 2018. Any item not picked up before January 31st will be offered to the previous bidder on the bid form.
We have posted on-line some unique gift ideas from Old Fort Western. These items can be purchased directly through the OFW office and are great Christmas presents and stocking stuffers.
