Let's Talk Insta-Auction!

Are you excited?

Oh boy, I'm excited!

I have been hinting around about something awesome starting Tuesday and Tuesday is finally here!!

It's a new kind of auction to benefit Winnie's Wish!

First, a word or two about Winnie's Wish; you all know that I love to run fundraisers to help the kitties there. Beautiful, wonderful, ADOPTABLE kitties!

They are full/over full again and that means it takes a lot of the green stuff to keep things going. Kitties gotta eat! And if it goes in, it's gotta come out! And stuff's gotta get cleaned with something! Then there's the heat and air to keep them healthy and happy! And then the big stuff! Spays, neuters, medications, vaccinations, veterinary support, oh boy! Lots and lots of those green papers!

So I thought and thought about what to do this summer and I had too many things wanted to make, some too big for fundraisers, some too small for auctions. So I compromised. And went with the auction, lol!

But we're talking a different kind of auction here! I've named it Insta-Auction!

There is no set end date for the whole auction BUT there will be end dates for individual items.
How do we decide when the end dates are? Well, that's up to YOU!

There is no time on anything until a bid comes in. If you bid on an item on a Wednesday, then that auction will end exactly seven days later, but only for that item. So if another item gets a bid on Saturday, does it end on Wednesday? Nope, it ends on the following Saturday!

Bids will only be taken on items for seven days following the first bid, then highest bidder gets it! Some items may not get an end time for a long time, and that's fine. The idea is to leave the auction open so when you're ready or see something you like, you can bid on your time! (Unless someone else bids on it first, then you have a week!) :)

Making sense? I hope so! But if not, please feel free to ask in comments, or email me (anniclan AT aol DOT com), or send a message on facebook (Andrea)


Here are some of the kitties you'll be helping! Who also need homes by the way, so share please?
