(A) Any substitution for or addition to goods described in an inventory filed pursuant to this chapter, or any change in the time or place for a sale conducted pursuant to this chapter, shall be unlawful and shall void any license issued to conduct a sale pursuant to this chapter, and the license shall cease to apply to the sale. In the case of a sale of goods damaged by fire, smoke, water, or otherwise, or in the case of an insurance sale or a salvage sale, the goods to be sold at the sale shall be clearly and distinctly segregated, marked or identified, and advertised, if at all, so that both on display and in advertising such goods may be readily distinguished from other stock and their identity readily ascertained. Any commingling of the goods with other stocks of the licensee in such a manner to cause the goods to lose their separate identity, either on display or in advertising, shall be unlawful and shall void any license issued to conduct the sale pursuant to this chapter, and the license shall cease to apply to the sale.
(B) No person in contemplation of conducting any going out of business, removal, assignee's, or creditor's sale, or during the continuance of such a sale, shall order or purchase any goods for the purpose of selling them at the sale, and any unusual purchase or addition to the stock of the goods within 60 days before the filing of the application for a license to conduct the sale shall be presumptive evidence that the purchases or additions were made in contemplation of the sale and for the purpose of selling them at the sale.
