A&W Surplus Online Auction based in Fresno

A&W Surplus is an online auction site based in Fresno near the airport.
You need an online account to participate and before you bid you can scroll through the "lots," the items to be auction, in the online catalog.You can visit the warehouse and look at the auction lots with an appointment on Tuesdays 9am - 4pm and Wednesdays 9am - 12pm so that you can see size, quality, and whether or not the item works.

The auction works in amounts of $2.50, so if you bid $1 on an 1 item lot, you pay $2.50. If you bid .01 on a 500 item lot, then you pay $5. So the amounts will go from $2.50, $5, $7.50, $10. $12.50, $15, $17.50, $20, $22.50 etc. Be very careful! Pay attention because when you bid it's a single amount for each item. You might see 3 cute Halloween costumes in a picture, but in red it will say 5 items, so if you bid $4 its $20 not $12 (which would become $12.50 because everything rounds up to the $2.50 increment).

Like any auction, proceed with caution and you can always call A&W Surplus if you have questions. No guarantees for things like electronics. If you are local you pick up your goods by appointment on Thursday and Friday. If you miss you appointment, then they charge you an extra $25 and ship the item out Monday and charge you the costs. So make sure you have time to pick it up.

It is online, so people outside the area can participate.

Read the fine print, honestly though, it's a yardsale lover's dream. It is taking all my willpower not to bid on the 6ft high boxes of Halloween crap lol.

Wells Fargo Wednesdays at the Zoo: Children get in Free!

UPDATE: Wells Fargo Wednesday is still in effect! I'm going this January 2016 with my friends and family and I can't wait to see the new African Exhibit. The Fresno Chaffee Zoo is truly one of Fresno's gems.

The Fresno Chaffee Zoo and Wells Fargo have teamed up to present Wells Fargo Wednesdays which means children ages 2-11 get in free with their families on the first Wednesday of each month. No coupon necessary. We went last month and it was the first time we saw the Sea Lion Cove! Loved it. My only disappointment was they blocked the path behind the reptile house, so you have to go around to get to the cove. So with 4 kids I got in for $7 (that's the adult ticket price).
