Auction house

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki

The auction house is a building in the city in Animal Crossing: City Folk run by Lloid that allows players to sell items to friends visiting over Wi-Fi or to other human residents in town. It is the only building in the city open for business all day.

Auctions happen over a set period (displaying and bidding is only allowed during weekends; each weekend alternates between the two) which Lloid will mention when talking to him. The auction house has nine dark brown display tables where items will be shown, with three of them being larger than the other six.

An item sold at the auction house will be sent to the buyer's mailbox, and the seller will have the money sent to their savings account. However, if an item is not sold, the item will be mailed back to the player by Lloid. The auction house can also be used to store items for later use, and Lloid can also let the player access their storage through the "checkroom" to obtain items to sell at an auction.

Due to the termination of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in 2014, the auction house can currently only be used to sell items to other human residents in town.

The auction house is functionally replaced by Re-Tail in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, where players or villagers can place items for sale.
