Join us for the annual Handmade Holiday auction where you can shop for handmade gifts for others and yourself, from the comfort of your own home. We will have paintings, prints, jewelry, art dolls, and assemblage in this auction.

I am thrilled to facilitate the Handmade Holiday Auction with 24 artists, about 11 are new to my events. 


BEFORE THE AUCTION:

I will be posting previews in the coming weeks of pieces that will be in the auction. If you would like to be tagged when certain pieces come up, please comment on the piece and say "Tag me" in the weeks before the auction. You must be friends with the artist on FB AND click GOING on the event page in order to be tagged. 

ONCE THE AUCTION BEGINS

Each day there will be 1-3 artists. Their auctions will run from NOON (first day), 1pm EST each day thereafter to 11:30 am EST the following day. Then the next artists will begin at 1pm EST noon and so on and so forth until all 24 artists are featured. Each artist will have approximately 10-30 pieces up for auction. 


WHEN PLACING A BID

Bidding is in $5 increments or more. BID RIGHT IN THE COMMENTS SECTION OF THE PIECE YOU WANT TO BID ON . 

Look at the starting bid, check if there are any bids, if they are go higher, if there isn't a bid, you may place the starting bid or higher or choose the BIN if the item has a BUY IT NOW price.
Take note of the closing time for the pieces you are bidding on. All times are EST. All pieces end at different times.

Bidding Wars

If there is a bidding war in the final minutes, all bidding will continue till someone concedes, or bidding lapses for more than 1 min. The bidding can continue for maximum time of 5 minutes after closing time. 

BINs

Some items will have a BIN price, you may bid the BIN at any time before the closing of the item and take it home. BINs are good for people who may not have the time to check in througout the day or may not be around during the closing time. BINs are also good for people who really want a piece and are sure of their purchase and want to make sure it doesn't get sold to someone else. The BIN is usually closer to the regular price of the piece.

ALL PRICES ARE IN United States Dollars. 

CLOSING TIME IS BY MY CLOCK...our clocks may not be exactly in sync. If I missed your bid, please let me know. All times are in EST.

PLEASE PLACE ALL BIDS IN COMMENT BOXES, NOT REPLY BOXES...so I don't miss them. They get buried if you put it in a reply box.

If you win:

Please send your winning bid and shipping promptly to the artist's paypal email in USD...please make sure both boxes are USD if the artist is in another country as Paypal will attempt to change it to their currency.

If you would like to combine shipping on more than one item, please consult the artist.

Please send your THE WINNING BID AND SHIPPING as soon as you know you've won and/or within 24 hours of winning. I will post the winner for each item with a blurb that describes where to send the payment. Please friend the artist so we can tag you easily.

If for any reason you do not have Paypal, you can send a check or money order to the artist or myself (Stephanie) through Priority mail. Please arrange this ahead.

ITEMS THAT CLOSED REMAIN OPEN TO BE BID ON
If you see anything says STILL OPEN in the comments, it means the time for that piece has lapsed and you may place a bid, starting bid or higher in the comments and automatically take the piece home.

MORNINGS...
EVERY MORNING I WILL POST PIECES THAT DO NOT HAVE BIDS TO THE TOP OF THE FEED. Please check the top of the feed and let us know if you need help finding anything. ALL PIECES BY THE PREVIOUS DAY'S ARTISTS WILL CLOSE BY 11:30 AM EST TO 11:45 AM EST. NEXT ARTISTS WILL GO UP AT 1PM EST.


PLEASE REFRAIN FROM WITHDRAWING BIDS.

Sometimes we allow anonymous bidding but cannot guarantee this option will be available.

Shipping: Items will be shipped within 3-5 days after the auction.

Shipping outside the U.S is at an additional cost, please contact the artist to get a quote.

SHIPPING INCLUDES SHIPPING AND HANDLING, NOT JUST POSTAGE. SOME ARTISTS ALSO INCLUDE INSURANCE.

Please contact the artist about shipping inquiries. I will not be able to assist with information about shipping. 

***There are no guarantees an item will arrive in time for Christmas.

Please feel free to comment on the pieces even if you are not placing a bid. The love and support at my auctions are part of what makes the process truly special. Thank you for being here!

If you would like to be tagged when certain pieces come up, please comment on the piece and say "Tag me" in the weeks before the auction. You must be friends with the artist on FB AND click GOING on the event page in order to be tagged.

**This auction is not in any way affiliated with FB.

NOTE: BEST TO TRY AND USE A LAPTOP, COMPUTER, SOMETIMES PHONES AND IPADS LIMIT SCROLLING AND SO YOU MAY NOT SEE ALL THE PIECES. THEY ALSO DON'T ALLOW US TO SEND THE LINK FOR CERTAIN ITEMS YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN. THE LINKS DON'T WORK ON YOUR PHONE OR IPAD, BUT IF WE SEND YOU A DIRECT LINK TO AN ITEM YOU ARE INTERESTED IN, ON YOUR COMPUTER YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GO DIRECTLY TO IT. 

MANY HAVE BID ON ITEMS WITH THEIR PHONE AND IPADS AND HAVE BEEN ABLE TO NAVIGATE, SO IT IS NOT A REQUIREMENT TO USE A LAPTOP OR COMPUTER. THIS IS JUST A SUGGESTION SO YOU DON'T MISS ANYTHING.

HAPPY BIDDING!
