Tophatter Auction Site Review:

Based on the description above, you might think that Tophatter is just like ebay. While both sites are auction sites, there are a couple of differences. Unlike ebay, Tophatter’s auction are live. You don’t need to wait for days for an auction to end. It ends in just a few minutes as soon as nobody bids anymore.

There are auction rooms that you can enter. Once you’re in, you’ll see the host who tells the bidders about the item — some description and the retail price according to the seller. In case you entered the auction room in the middle of bidding, you can just check the current auction item on the right side of the screen. You’ll also see a list of upcoming items to be auctioned.

Most of the items I see in there are jewelry items. Some auction rooms have about 100 attendees while some have almost 300 attendees. You would probably be luckier if you enter the auction rooms with less people but then that’s not really an assurance that you’ll win the item since there might be people out there that really like those particular items. It’s almost like watching Property Wars. LOL!

If you love the thrill of auctions and the thrill of getting items for less than its retail price, Tophatter is a great place to be! You don’t even need to get out of the house to participate in the auction!

Awesome news! Tophatter is giving $10 off your first $11 purchase! And now for the giveaway, one lucky reader will win $100 cash!

  1. I saw a makeup pallet with 86 different eyeshadows which was neat, but it didn’t say a brand name. I loved a ear cuff I found that was really funky in the daily bazaar today!

  2. Wow…HP compaq mini laptop sold for $3.67. Even if a bum computer it’s still no loss. Wowzers.

  3. I would love to bid one of these days! There are a lot of really nice items that I’ve found in each visit to Top Hatter that has piqued my interest. Things that I can’t really find anywhere else unless I did a lot of rummaging through antique stores or garage sales!

  4. So many items that I don’t HAVE to have, but want … window shopping is a great time killer, but kind of frustrating.. 🙂

  5. I like it is fast pace and you can look at so many amazing things to buy big selection no more thrifts shops and garage sales.

  6. What is nice is that the auctions really don’t last that long and they are right on to the next item.

  7. I think this is an interesting and exciting idea. A new take on the whole ebay auction site thing.

  8. I was wondering how this worked…thanks so much for the explanations! Thank you also for this opportunity!
