 The Weekly General Goods Auctions

General but not generic! 

Our weekly General Goods auction is home to a huge assortment of anything and everything one could imagine. Composed of the treasures you’d find in the back of a cupboard or hidden in a shed, General is always full of surprises. Stock up on homewares, clothing, electronics, tools, and furniture - and avoid landfill by selling your excess items to give them a new lease on life. Come see Canberra’s best second hand showrooms and discover a bargain here at The Auction Barn!

Our General Auctions start at $10, and end every Saturday. Please see our Upcoming Auctions page for our current auctions!

The Auction Barn showrooms are open for viewing 7 days a week; from 9 to 5 Monday to Friday, and 9 to 12 on weekends, with no appointments required.
