I recall the Zombie Army was racking things up, from Zombies (go figure) to I believe being in a horror novel.

I did end up missing a bunch of the auction. We were waiting for certain items to come up, and basically had hoped items would come up around the timing and order they were on the list, but when the skipping ahead happened, we said forget it, and headed out into the rain and cold to wait in line.

I hung around a while for the auction but each item was taking soooo long I finally left. Auctioneer was more interested in hearing himself talk (imagine that ) than effectively auctioning the items. I wanted to wait for the Scarefactory item but figured it would be midnight before that was up for auction.

Next year: quieter area; chairs and better auctioneer.

We got Shanes freddy shoes

Branding package for spooky buttons

Bare bones mini lights from minispotlight.com

Those are the things we won at the auction
I agree about a quieter place and chairs for the auction. The auction should of been held after the show and before a tour. This way more people can attend.

I am glad yall got the shoes! I wanted to bid on several things and I could not hear shit! I don't think the dude that was doing the auction could hear himself! I am afraid that cost the HHA some money no I am sure it did. What was the big Scarefactory item I did not even know that was an item and what did Unit70's piece bring? Shane and its if theres a next time do it at the hotel or on the show floor! Shane this time.

Can anyone post what everything brought? I think it would be good to post it for the paid members? Scott can you list what everything brought? Shane and its pass the list along! Shane this time.

I don't know about a price list but I'd LOVE to hear how much the auction brought in for the HHA! -Tyler

I heard someone say around $11,000 was made that nite at the auction.

They could have had twice that much if it had been organized and lasted say an hour instead of all night.

I picked up a couple of thing.

The Inbred mask from SPFX 475.00
2 Heads from Slattwe FX 210.00
3 Pieces from Gore Galore 100.00
The Flying Bat from Scarefactory 2250.00

Thats all I know about that things went for.

I picked up the set of 12 foam heads for $70.

I cant remember who they are from now.

I think the Unit70 piece went for around $750 or $800.

Thats all I can remember for right now.

We bid on a bunch but only got the Eco Glow strips $1000 worth for $500.

I think the auction raised approx $11000 for HHA!
Thank you all for bidding and buying, and thank you Larry for letting us have the event at your tour!

I think the auction went very well, but future auctions will see some changes I'm sure. I doubt though we'd have made twice the money under any circumstances, all bidders got great deals and the HHA raised good money, so everyone left happy. As for Rich being the auctioneer, he did a fantastic job and we were glad to have him!

Marc, you cleaned up between you and Spooky Steve you guys were busy!

Thank you guys for coming to the aution and bidding on all the great items.

Also, a very special THANK YOU to all the vendors who dontated so generously and who were all so enthusiastic about the HHA!!!

Yes, Thanks to all the supporting vendors, Rich, all that put it together and the HHA. Our haunt got some great items.

I personally stopped by each vendors both to tell them thanks and to buy something from on sunday. They all said they were behind the HHA 100% and was glad to be a part

Good job guys on getting an organization together for haunters that makes since.
If you need anything from us in Texas, dont hesitate to call.

We had alot of fun at the auction and had the chance to meet and hang out with some great haunters from across the country that we had not met in person before.

I also want to say great job on all the hard work that Allan, Jill, Tony, Wayne and his awesome crew, Rich and everyone else put into making the auction happen for the HHA. You guys rock!

Thanks again to all the supporting vendors and to all the haunters that bid/bought the auction items!
