Tuesday August 4th at 5pm on Instagram Live
@saltstoneceramics and @phipottery
Here's how the auction will work:
- Join us on Instagram Live at 5pm on Tuesday August 4th: @saltstoneceramics or @phipottery
- The August Auction benefits the Black Trans Taskforce via the Lavender Rights Project
- All donations will be matched by our partner, LinkedIn
- We will display each item one at a time along with a bidding code.
- To bid, just type into the live-stream's chat. Type the item number and the amount you'd like to bid. For example: 103 $95.
- There is a time delay (approximately 20 seconds) with the messages and occasionally messages show up late or not at all - we apologize in advance for the inconvenience.
- If the auction goes over Instagram's one hour live streaming limit, we will restart a new live stream - hang in there and join our live stream again!
- Auction prices are per item. If there is more than one item in the lot, and you'd like more than one, add "x2" or "x3" to your bid. For example: 102 $65 x4
- Each item will be available for bidding for about 1 minute and will go to the highest bidder at the end of the bidding time. Remember, this is all for a good cause, so ending the auction is at the auctioneer's discretion. Nobody wants to get in the way of a good bidding war!
- If the minimum bid is not reached, we will offer it in a silent auction on the @phipottery stories
- After the auction, we will send you an IG message with with your donation total, shipping/pick up instructions, and how to submit your donation.
- We are very fortunate to have LinkedIn as our matching donor, so every dollar you donate will be matched. For this reason, we ask that you submit your donations directly to us (@Sarah-Steininger-1) through Venmo and we will submit one total donation.
- If you'd like to have your piece shipped to you, purchase shipping here (make sure to include the BLM fundraiser and the bidding code in the notes on the purchase). Make sure to purchase one shipping voucher per item. Otherwise, we will coordinate a pick up from Saltstone Ceramics or Phi Pottery. Please give us 1-2 weeks to get packages shipped out.
We can't wait to see you August 4th!!
