Auction Day: Bid ’em Up!!!

It’s an auction day here.  IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO BID, I EXPLAINED IT IN A BLOG POST.  CLICK HERE to learn how to bid.

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS AUCTION WILL GO TO THE GOOD DEEDS/POSTAGE FUND.  I am still buying a lot of batting for finishers and still shipping out a lot of quilt tops so there is still a need for funds to support it.  I’ve gotten so I am buying a lot of batting nowadays but only for established regular quilt finishers.

Before you bid:

Shipping is flat rate as shown for domestic. International postage will be calculated and invoiced.

Be aware of when the auction closes and be accessible by email: Today’s auction is live as soon as the item is listed beneath the BID HERE comment. Bidding will close on Monday evening at 6 pm CENTRAL time zone.

To bid:  Go into the comment section.  Find the heading for the item you want to bid on and enter your bid.  Often times you won’t see your bid unless you refresh the page.  No worries…I likely see it as do others.  If you are a first-time user of the blog then your comment won’t show up unless I approve it.  I am extra diligent at looking at the blog on auction weekends.  I’ll approve your bid and everyone will be able to see it.

After you bid:

By Tuesday evening I will bill you via Paypal using the email address you leave a comment with. If you want to pay by check please get ahold of me and let me know that.  Please pay by Wednesday evening at 6 pm.  Pay promptly so I can ship as soon as possible and only on one trip to the post office.  If you don’t pay, that holds up other packages, and fellow bidders have to wait to get their items.

IF YOU ARE UNAVAILABLE AND CAN’T FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES, please don’t bid.  I’ve had to hunt high bidders down for a week after an auction and it is so frustrating.  Because of that, if you have not paid and had no correspondence with me by Friday at noon Central time zone, I will offer the item to the person who bid less than you and you will forfeit the item.

Shipping charges to mail will be added to each order as listed.  If it costs more than that, no worries.  I’ll absorb the rest of the cost.  If it costs less, I’ll consider it a donation.  THANKS for understanding why I don’t do exact postage.

          #20, Vintage Wonky Top, bid $100.

          I love this little top! The more I study it, the more interesting it becomes. Good thing Bonnie Hunter is out of town, because she would snap this up in a nano-second. Shhhh!p

          Hello, Jo,
          I am the apparent high bidder on No.21, but have not received an invoice.
          If I’m not high bidder, no biggie, but I do want to pay promptly.
          Thank you,
          Licia Jackson

          1. From what I see someone else bid $22 after your bid. I’m so sorry. There will be another auction with more cross stitch charts.

          #22, vintage Kid Embroidered Quilt, bid $100

          Wow! The workmanship on the embroidered blocks is excellent! I can tell this was made with lots of love.

          If I win this item, I have plans to change up the pink border for something more masculine as I have a one-year-old great nephew who “needs” this lovely quilt.
