If you like to occassionally learn something while being entertained, you probably watch some shows on WTVP, Channel 47, the Peoria PBS affiliate. You can watch the stream of the auction live HERE.
The annual auction happens only once a year. There's alway a wide array of items to bid on from everyday things to rare and unique stuff. So get ready to bid and buy stuff, and keep public TV alive here in Central Illinois. I've done my turn serving as a guest auctioneer the past few years, and I'll be donning my grand pa glasses in order to read my cards better. See me try not to crack the camera lens between 7-9 pm Sunday night, the final night of the auction.
