At our 2012 Gathering in Peterborough, our good friend and fiendish miniaturist
have a silent auction. It had been a great success at the Rochester Small
Scales Houseparty the previous year, so the committee said, go ahead Lynn. And
gathering since then, we've had a highly successful silent auction, with the
proceeds going towards gift certificates for the next year's Gathering
registration for random lucky attendees.
Sadly, Lynn died in 2013, but the Silent Auction lives on in her name.
Now is your chance to clear your collection of the pieces taking up the space
you want for your wonderful new treasures.
Bring them to Gathering to be auctioned off to a new home, where they will be
loved and appreciated.
Suggestions for donations:
Be mindful of size, please. No huge houses, although roomboxes would be all
Unopened (or only-been-opened-once-and-then-tucked-away) kits
Half-done project (with or without bits)
Furniture, dolls, accessories you've acquired but now realise you will never
Materials and supplies that could really be useful -- to someone else
Boxes of intriguing bits and pieces
NEW PROCEDURE THIS YEAR
Prior to the Gathering, please provide us with an item description(s) and
We need this information by April 15th 2018
in order to
make up a bid sheet for each item.
Please email your donation information to
If you have no idea of the value, just make an educated guess estimate. For
random bits and pieces, such as wallpaper, wood stock, kit parts, we will
compile like items from donors, and set the value.
You will bring your item(s) to the Friday registration table. Look for the
Silent Auction sign.
The Auction will be held during Saturday Dinner.
And don't forget, you can pick up some bargains for yourself, to take home and
USE. (or tuck away in all that newly created space).
What doesn't get auctioned will be returned to its doner to take back home.
