Welcome To The Auction!

The Washington Society of the Sons of the American Revolution is pleased to present its first Online Auction to support our hosting of the 2021 National Congress of the Sons of the American Revolution.

What Washington lacks in Revolutionary War battle sites, it more than makes up for in its pristine natural resources, vibrant communities, cultural icons and historic landmarks.  A region as diverse in its geography and technology as it is in its world class dining and shopping opportunities, Washingtonians enjoy an extraordinary quality of life that reflects in the spirit of its people.

In his letter to Meriwether Lewis, President Thomas Jefferson wrote:

“The object of your mission is to explore the Missouri River, and such principal streams of it, as, by its course and communication with the waters of the Pacific Ocean, whether the Columbia, Oregon, Colorado, or any other river, may offer the most direct and practicable water-communication across the continent, for the purposes of commerce.”

Knowing the importance that the whole of this continent plays to each of its parts, President Jefferson commissioned Captain Lewis to explore the farthest corners of our land.  In that same spirit, the Washington Society of the Sons of the American Revolution now invites you to join us in Seattle for the 2021 National Congress, and to “Discover the Northwest:  History, Industry, Beauty, Adventure”.

As you participate in this Online Auction, you may do so knowing that all of the proceeds will be used to make the 2021 National Congress a memorable once in a lifetime not-to-be-missed experience.

WASSAR ONLINE AUCTION

Terms and Conditions 

Please read the following information carefully before bidding on any of the items in this auction. By participating in this auction, you (as applicable, “you,” “Buyer” and/or “Seller”) agree to these Terms and Conditions and to the WASSAR Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by reference.

You must be at least 21 years of age to participate. All purchases are final and all bids are nonretractable and nonrefundable.

  1. Every attempt has been made to describe all property as accurately as possible. However WASSAR does not warrant or represent, and denies responsibility for the accuracy of the descriptions, encompassing but not limited to vintage, provenance, authenticity, quality and condition as may be stated on this website. Any and all statements made relating to the property offered on the site are merely statements of opinion and at no time can be construed as warranties and representations of fact nor assumptions of any liability on the part of WASSAR.
  2. Buyer accepts all purchases “as is, with all faults accepted”. Notwithstanding any other terms of these Terms and Conditions, should WASSAR receive any written claims within 21 calendar days of the auction that any property is with a shortage, or otherwise out of condition, or that any statement in the web site is without basis, then WASSAR will judge such claims through inspection of the property or by any other just means, and may in its sole and exclusive discretion refund the purchase price. At all times the decision of WASSAR will be final and binding on all parties.
  3. The term “final bid” as used herein shall refer to the price at which any auction lot is knocked down to Buyer. The final purchase price due from Buyer shall be the aggregate of the final winning bid amount, plus any and all applicable sales or use taxes, plus shipping, handling, storage and insurance expenses (cumulatively referred to herein as “Final Purchase Price”). The Final Purchase Price, including delivery, of auction items will be automatically charged to your account unless another payment method has been negotiated with and agreed upon by WASSAR before the start of the auction.  Title to the property will not pass from Seller to Buyer until full payment is received by WASSAR. No property will be released to Buyer until WASSAR receives the Final Purchase Price as described above, including without limitation, any and all applicable storage, shipping and insurance charges.

          All WASSAR auctions are conducted in U.S. Dollars. The WASSAR account or payment method of                 each winning bidder will be charged in U.S. Dollars for the Final Purchase Price as described above.             The actual amount to be paid in your home currency will be determined by the exchange rate used by           your payment method when you are actually charged.

          Buyers Outside of the U.S. Please Note: WASSAR reserves the right to require payment by wire                     transfer for the Final Purchase Price prior to shipping.

      4. The highest acceptable bid received prior to the end of the auction date and time shall be from Buyer,           who will assume full risk of loss and responsibility for the lot.

      5. Bids submitted to WASSAR are processed and executed as a service and convenience to bidders.                 Neither WASSAR nor its staff shall be responsible for any failure to execute such bids or any error                 relating to the same.

      6. Should any Buyer fail to fully comply with these Terms and Conditions, WASSAR may hold Buyer liable           for the Final Purchase Price or resell the property after reasonable notice is given to Buyer. Any                     deficiencies attending the resale of property shall be the liability of the defaulting Buyer, along with any           and all storage and/or legal fees and any other expenses or damages incurred by WASSAR. In the               event of non-payment by Buyer, or non-compliance by Buyer with these Terms and Conditions,                     WASSAR reserves the right to take any and all appropriate or necessary actions including, without                 limitation, canceling or rescinding the transaction, reporting the defaulting Buyer to an appropriate                 credit reporting agency, charging Buyer’s payment method for WASSAR’s fees and expenses incurred           in connection with the non-compliance (including the costs of the transaction itself), turning any                     amounts due and owing over to a commercial collection agency and/or taking any other action                       permitted by law. In no event shall WASSAR be liable for any incidental or consequential damages to             Buyer.

      7. Shipping: All items will be shipped to Buyer upon collection of the Final Purchase Price, including                   without limitation, pre-paid shipping charges. All lots are delivered by Seller's preferred method of                   shipping. Buyer shall assume full responsibility for shipping expenses. This includes shipping costs,               packing and handling, and insurance.

         SHIPPING SHALL BE:  FOB SHIPPING POINT/ORIGIN (BELLEVUE, WASHINGTON), FREIGHT                  PREPAID AND CHARGED BACK.

          Buyer is responsible for any and all duties and customs charges incurred in shipping purchases from             the U.S. to Buyer's desired shipping address. To the extent that WASSAR provides estimates of                     shipping charges, these should be treated as ESTIMATES ONLY. Buyer is responsible for the actual               charges incurred.

          Buyer shall become the owner of Buyer’s purchased items upon payment in full, in good and collected           funds, of the Final Purchase Price as described above.  However, WASSAR will not reimburse Buyer             for lost or damaged shipments.  WASSAR will take all precautions to package the purchased goods               according to industry standards to minimize the possibility of damage. WASSAR will use only                         reputable carriers who will safeguard the shipment appropriately given the nature of the purchased               goods. WASSAR shall not compensate Buyer for any loss or damage due to exposure to temperature           variations, shipping delays, or losses of any and/or every other possible description.

          The primary means of distribution will be common carrier. Buyer assumes all liability for the shipment             and will not hold WASSAR responsible.

          By participating in this online auction, Buyer authorizes WASSAR to act on their behalf to engage a                 common carrier to deliver online to the location Buyer specifies. By placing bids in this auction, Buyer             acknowledges, warrants and represents that he/she/they are at least 21 years old, and that the                     person to whom Buyer's purchased goods will be delivered is also at least 21 years old.

          Under no circumstances shall an adjustment of price or credit be made after delivery.

      8. Storage Terms and Fees:

          WASSAR will store purchased online without charge for no more than fourteen (14) days after the                 purchase date. If purchased items during the online auction have not been picked up by or shipped to           Buyer within 14 days after the purchase date, including without limitation because Buyer has failed to             pick up or arrange for shipping, or Buyer’s payment method on file cannot be charged for shipping, or           Buyer has failed to pay the Final Purchase Price in full, in good and collected funds, storage fees will             begin to accrue at the rate of Five ($5.00) Dollars per day thereafter.

          WASSAR reserves the right to claim a lien for all lawful charges for storage of Buyer’s purchased                   items, as well as interest, insurance, shipping and/or transportation, all applicable taxes, storage fees,           and other charges and expenses in relation to such goods. WASSAR reserves the right to exercise its           lien rights under the terms of any applicable law and/or agreement between Buyer and WASSAR,                   including without limitation under these Terms and Conditions. At any time after purchase, WASSAR               may, upon written notice to Buyer and any other person known to claim an interest in such goods,                 require the removal of any purchased goods, upon payment of the Final Purchase Price and all                     charges attributable to such goods, within a stated period, not less than 30 days after such notice. If               Buyer does not timely comply with WASSAR’s request, WASSAR may sell Buyer’s purchased goods in           accordance with applicable law and shall be entitled to exercise all other rights it has under the law                 with respect to such goods. Provided, however, if WASSAR believes, in good faith, that the purchased           goods are about to deteriorate or decline in value to less than the amount of WASSAR’s lien in a                   shorter period than 30 days, WASSAR may specify in the notification any reasonable time, less than               30 days after such notice, for removal of the purchased goods and in case such goods are not                       removed, may sell them at public sale held one week after a single advertisement or posting as                     provided by law. WASSAR may satisfy its lien from the proceeds of any sale or disposition as                         permitted by applicable law.

          Goods in WASSAR’s possession that do not sell in the online auction (“Unsold Property”), will be                     retained by WASSAR.

      9. The laws of the state of Washington shall govern the rights and obligations of all parties. WASSAR is             fully licensed in the State of Washington to participate in online auctions.

         You and WASSAR each agree that any claim or dispute at law or equity that has arisen or may arise              between us relating in any way to these Terms and Conditions, any prior version of these Terms and              Conditions, or your use of or access to this online auction, will be resolved in accordance with the                  provisions of this Dispute Resolution section. Please read this section carefully as it affects your rights. 

         You and WASSAR agree to first contact each other with regard to any claim or dispute, and to provide            a written description of the problem, all relevant documents/information and the proposed resolution.            WASSAR will contact users of this online auction based on the contact information provided to us.                  Notice to WASSAR must be delivered to: Anthony Abbott, President, WASSAR, 2921 West Bertona                Street, Seattle, Washington 98199-2746; with a copy delivered to: LUCAS & LUCAS, P.S., c/o Gregory          D. Lucas, Esq., 919 124th Avenue NE, #101, Bellevue, Washington 98005.

         IF AFTER 30 DAYS THE PARTIES ARE UNABLE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTE RAISED UNDER THE            PREVIOUS PROVISION, THE PARTIES AGREE THAT THE DISPUTE SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO                  ARBITRATION PURSUANT TO THE CIVIL RULES OF THE WASHINGTON STATE SUPERIOR                      COURT, AND THE LOCAL RULES OF THE KING COUNTY SUPERIOR COURT. The parties                          understand that they would have had a right or opportunity to litigate disputes through a court and to              have a judge or jury decide their case, but they choose to have any disputes resolved through binding          arbitration.

         You and WASSAR each agree that any claim or dispute between us, and any claim by either of us                  against any agent, employee, successor, or assign of the other, including, to the full extent permitted              by applicable law, third parties who are not parties to these Terms and Conditions, whether related to            these Terms and Conditions or otherwise, including past, present, and future claims and disputes, and          including any dispute as to the validity or applicability of this arbitration clause, shall be resolved by                binding arbitration administered by the King County Superior Court under its rules and procedures in              effect, as modified by these Terms and Conditions (as permitted under such rules and procedures).              The arbitrator's award shall be final and binding and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator          may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

         Further, each party agrees that any arbitration will be solely between WASSAR and the user of the                WASSAR, not as part of a classwide claim (i.e., not brought on behalf of or together with another                    individual's claim). If for any reason any court or arbitrator holds that this restriction is unconscionable            or unenforceable, then our agreement to arbitrate shall not apply and the classwide dispute must be              brought in King County Superior Court for the State of Washington.

   17. These Terms and Conditions, together with our Privacy Policy, both as may be amended from time to            time in WASSAR’s discretion, and Additional Terms (as defined below), govern your access to and use          of this online auction.

         WASSAR may revise these Terms and Conditions and its Privacy Policy from time to time and will                  provide users of the WASSAR site with notice of any such changes by posting the new Terms or Policy          on this online auction and providing an updated effective date. By using this online auction subsequent          to any revision of these Terms and Conditions or Privacy Policy, you agree to be bound by such                      changes. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions or to the Privacy Policy, you must                        immediately terminate use of this online auction.

         Users of this online auction agree that WASSAR may provide Additional Terms at any time. To the                  extent any Additional Terms conflict with these Terms and Conditions, the Additional Terms will control.
