If you've never been to Collingbourne Auctioneers on Chaiyapruek Road 2 near Jomtien Beach, Pattaya you're missing out on one of the weekly highlights of the Thailand bargain hunter's calendar.
The two major auctions are held every Wednesday at 4 PM and every Saturday at 11.00 AM
Wednesday's auction is for cars and motorbikes so it's more practical then the weekend, because that's almost like a social event.
There's a lot of fun to be had with unexpected and highly desirable goods falling under the hammer at the Saturday auction where a range of items from antiques to apple phones and apple computers are to be had.
Every Saturday a container of returned goods from a well known high street retailer in the UK is put under the hammer at the 11 AM auction.
The rules and regulations, not to mention VAT stipulations for returned goods in the UK make it cost prohibitive to repackage these brand new and pristine condition items and put them back on the shelf.
This is to our advantage for people in Chonburi as we get to bid on a wide range of retail goods from Disney Toys to Hair Clippers, Black & Decker Power Tools and Beauty equipment plus so much more.
They often go for unbeatable prices that are the lowest on the planet.
