Do you know about Spree? -

It's a ecommerce gem, and there are plenty of plugins on github... on a
quick search I found a plugin for auctions...

Maybe it can be what you are searching...

Good luck,

P.s: I 've never used spree_auctions before... so I don't know if it is
stable or not... I just wanna show you that there are others with your
necessity and also how spree is customizable...

Yes, I've used Spree before and digging through the docs as we speak.
wondering if anyone would throw out something I hadn't heard of before
would have the auctioning piece included, but it looks like spree is
much as good as it gets for a good/stable ecommerce foundation, plus
customizable. Thanks for the chat.....sometimes, it's just about hearing
someone else say it ;-). I'll also dig into spree_auction a bit more,
because it's not maintained doesn't mean it's broken or unfixable.
