***GSAS B-I-G Annual General Auction - 2018***



The Greater Seattle Aquarium Society (your local aquarium club since 1971) is having its B-I-G annual General Auction!!

This is no "small time auction", last year over 800 items were auctioned in a little over 5-1/2 hours, over 2 items per minute! There will be new and used equipment (plants/fish/substrate/lights/filters/tanks/ stands/etc) mostly freshwater but marine folk can score great deals too - we never know what will show up! Most of the plants and fish available will be locally grown: corys, killies, cichlids, shrimp, koi, common and rare aquatic plants (No WA prohibited plants).

You must be a member to sell; everyone can buy: cash and credit cards are accepted; for GSAS members personal checks are also accepted

Our auction will be held at a new location this year! It will be at the Bitter Lake Community Center Gymnasium, 13035 Linden Ave N, Seattle, WA. The community center is conveniently located just off Aurora Ave N. at N. 130th St.

No admission charge, accessible, family friendly (but no furry/feathered pets please), lots of parking

The auction is Saturday, April 21st; the auction starts at 10:00 until ??. Registration and Check-in starts at 9:00; item 'bumping' and early check-out are available

The money raised at this auction helps GSAS bring world class speakers to our community for our free lecture series presented at our regular meetings on the second Tuesday of the month. In the last year we have offered presentations by Ad Konings, Karen Randall, Oliver Lucanus, Lawrence Kent, Chuck Rambo, Tom Barr, Gary Lange, Dick Au, Ted Judy, Christel Kasselmann, Mike Wise, Greg Sage, Ian Fuller, Rusty Wessel, Juan Asas, Dr. Paul Loiselle, Mark Duffill, and Barbie Fiorentino just to name a few. Please help us to continue to bring these world class speakers to the Seattle area!

We are generously sponsored by many of the local aquarium shops and numerous aquarium supply manufacturers.

See our web page at GSAS.org or our Facebook page for more information.

What about scaled pets . I wish you had an online bidding option. Super jealous of the killies and bettas I see picked up.

HI lilabug4545

Sorry, just a local aquarium club auction. No scaled animals but an occasional axolotl shows up.

HI All,

200 items registered and climbing quickly even with 3 days to go. Don't forget that the auction is this Saturday (it's going to be rainy so you can't do anything outside anyway) and I hope to see you there!
