The auction ended Saturday at 5 pm, and it went amazingly well! Today Teresa, Leslie and Kay are coming over and we’ll be packing auction items to be shipped out. I expect that the kittens and Caroline will be all UP in our business (apologies in advance to whoever ends up with a kitten in their box. Just consider it a bonus “thank you”) and Charles will watch from a distance while purring and rubbing his whiskers on every surface he can reach.
THANK YOU to all of you who donated wonderful items for this auction, who bid on the items, and most especially to Teresa, without whom this entire thing could not have happened in the first place, let alone gone so smoothly. That girl has been busting her butt for months, and she made this auction amazing.
Special thank yous to Suzanne, who helped a great deal in the lead-up to the auction (donating, proofreading and making suggestions) as well as helping out with daily “the current high bidder” posts each day of the auction, and to Kristin and Desiree, who helped out greatly in those daily posts. And of course thank you to Leslie and Kay, who will help make this Day of Packing go quickly!
It’s been a lot of fun, and the best part is that we get to do it all again in the fall! (Fall auction dates haven’t been determined yet. I’ll let y’all know when we figure it out – or, of course, you could go “like” the Auction page on Facebook!)
Note: (added 5/24/19) If you’re interested in a print, I’ll add you to the waiting list – they’ve come in already, and it’s been a bit of a flurry of getting payments, getting them mailed out, and figuring out what we’ve got. We should have some left over so that everyone who wants one will get one. If you’d like to be added to the waiting list, send me an email – mizrobyn (at) gmail.com – and I’ll be in touch once the dust settles.
Speaking of the auction, we had a limited number of prints of the oil painting of Charles and Caroline available Saturday evening. Those sold out quickly, but we will be ordering more. If you’d be interested in having an 8×10 print of the painting, please let me know in the comments (if you want more than one, please specify the number) and I’ll add you to the list. (If you’d rather email me with your interest instead, my email is mizrobyn (at) gmail.com ) They’ll cost $5 each. (Not yet sure what shipping will be, but it shouldn’t be too bad.)
(Just a note: there’s not a white border around the print – that’s just the way I cropped the picture. Also, there’s not a dark spot on the right side of the print; that was Charles being nosy while I was trying to take that picture!)
