Flood Auction

Auction now closed

When I saw Toni's plan to coordinate a heap of blog auctions I was excited, but didn't think I had anything to offer.  Then I remembered the In Threes cardigan I knit for Possum that she hasn't worn other than to let me get some pictures for my blog.  I love this cardigan, but I hope by auctioning it off I can do some good.

This cardigan is a size 3T.  It is knit in Bendigo Woollen Mills 10ply Luxury and also features handmade buttons from The Bird and the Fish.

Please bid and/or share this link on your blog, via Facebook or Twitter and hopefully we can raise some much needed money for the Queensland Flood Appeal.

How this auction works:

1. Bidding will start at $30 (Australian).
2. You can place a bid by leaving a comment on this blog post with your bid amount and email address. Please make sure that your bid is higher than the previous bidder.
3. Your bid must be in whole dollar increments.
4. This auction is open to everyone, however $10 will be charged for International addresses. Postage is FREE for Australian residents.
5.The auction begins now and will END at 9pm on Monday 24th January 2011.
6. At the close of the auction, I will contact the winner (please make sure your bid comment includes your email address). The winner will pay the winning amount directly into the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal and send me proof of payment via email. Once proof of payment has been received, I will post your package to you.

Auction rules borrowed straight from Toni's blog :)
