Saturday's auction seemed to go pretty well! Here is a photo that the class auction project leader took of the circus on display:
You can find photos of the circus in its earlier stages here.
The bidding was definitely more subdued than in previous years, but I'm hoping that there was good turnout in bidding anyway. The "Fund a Need" item this year was tuition assistance. My nature table dolls were a hit, and one set even went for the guaranteed bid price. Those who didn't win talked to me about future commissions and trades.
I'm going to devote my blog-time this week to catching up on your blogs. I've been so absorbed by auction work that I've been out of touch with people's struggles and joys.
