You (if you are this week’s winner) and five friends can pay a visit to the fictional Ed’s Auction House, where real actors auction off real stuff for play money.

It’s all part of the audience interactive play “Going…Going…Gone” (a show I co-created) offered every first Sunday of the month at the Indy Fringe Building. More info on the show here

To win, just enter here and tell about something interesting you’ve acquired at an auction, garage sale, thrift store or flea market.

I’ll pick one winner at random.

    too many to recall, but probaby my most useful purchase was an old beatup echo leaf blower. i bought at a garage sale for $12--about 10 years ago! still runs great, never change the plug or anything...just fill it and go!
  • from garage sale
    wine glasses
  • Auction
    Old Christmas decor
  • My first car
    A chocolate brown color 1979 Plymouth Volare for $600 (the year was 1992).
  • SOLD
    I love auctions, estate sales, flea markets, vintage and thrift shopping. The thrill of the hunt to date has been finding a Herman Wakefield dining room set for only $100 at the Queen City antique shows several years ago that late was apprasied at almost $1200. Not a bad investment...
  • Flea Market
    I remember as a kid my parents buying me a gumball machine - I was so excited!!!!
  • Bike
    My father returned from an auction when I was a small boy with my first bike. He negleted to tell me he had bought in pieces (over 100) in a box and would it have to be put together.
  • Sounds like fun!
    Hope I am selected!
  • Out Bid
    Guess I have a low threshold and seem to always get out bid.
  • Going going gone!
    A laser level
  • Doll House
    My grandfather won a doll house for me as a child at an auction.
  • Bad Summer Purchase
    I begged my Mom to buy me a pair of skis from a garage sale when I was 6 and I couldn't wait to try them. The problem was it was in the summer. They didn't last long. I rubbed the bottom of them with Crisco and tried skiing down the driveway.
  • garage sale
    shower chair
  • Auction
    At a silent auction unfortunately held on the night of an ice storm with small numbers in attendance, I won dinner for four at a local pundit's home for $60.00. A bargain!
    My sister does a lot of voluntering for Indy Ferral and when they spade or neuter a cat, they also, clip it's LEFT ear. I found a cat statue with its' LEFT ear chipped-off. She loved it.
  • Auction
    A prized Indiana cabinet purchased in an auction for $75. Still in use after many years of service.
  • Original comic art
    In 1975, one of the guests at the second comic book show ever held in Indianapolis was Dave Cockrum ( artist for the New X-Men). They had an auction of original art from Giant Size X-Men #1( which was the issue that was the start of the now popular version of the X-Men). I bought one of those pages for $25 and still have it. It"s worth in now easily in five figures.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
