OCA 2024 Winter Auction Information

Saturday, February 10, 2024

Best Western Plus, Strongsville, Ohio

There will be no per bag fee. We’re paying a straight 75% of the selling price to members, and 70% to non-members. $1 will be deducted from the seller’s split for each bag that sells for $1 or goes unsold.

If you’d like to stay Friday and/or Saturday night at the hotel, here’s a link with which you can book for the 2024 Extravaganza price of $76:  https://www.bestwestern.com/en_US/book/hotel-rooms.36178.html?groupId=D85LM2Y1   After following the link, to the right of the dates, click “Edit” to specify which night you’re staying, unless you’re staying both nights. (The Edit button is hidden by the sign-in message for a few seconds.) The link expires after Feb 2, so don’t delay!
