During each of our conventions we hold a Silent Auction where rare and unusual items are put out for attendees to bid on by adding their name and amount onto a bid sheet. There is usually a minimum bid, and bidders can raise the bid by (at least) pre-determined amount increments.
This year we have some very exciting items, and we would like to give non-attending members the opportunity to bid remotely, via a proxy. You will need to let us know the maximum you are willing to spend. The proxy will keep adding a new bid on your behalf whenever someone else tops your prior bid, until the item reaches your maximum. If you win, we will contact you and you can pay by contacting the OrigamiUSA home office with your credit card number. Your card will be charged for postage costs in addition to the amount of your bid.
Here’s the list of items available for remote bid. The link to submit your bid(s) is at the very bottom of the page.
