It's an ONLINE AUCTION

 

I need your help!


We have put in an offer on a new condo, back in our former building in Canmore.  It is a 2 bedroom, which means I will get an Art Room with a window!  YAY!

First things first, however.  We need to sell this place.  Because of this, my art room, now looks like a bedroom, in hopes that people will resonate with the space better.  Most of my stamping supplies are being stored and I will not be doing videos or a whole lot of card making until the condo officially sells.

Also, I need your help!  Instead of having to pack up and move my retired Stampin' Up! items, I would love to be able to get it into your hands and not have to store it or move it!

So...I'm doing a daily auction on the Artsy Fartsy Gallery Facebook page.  Each day, I'm starting with a minimum bid.  The person with the highest bid by 7 pm Mountain, gets the item.  I have listed the approximate cost to ship within Canada.

The best part for you, is that you will get a voucher at the end of the month to use to buy brand new products.  I will calculate all of the retired items that you purchased, and you will receive a voucher to purchase the same value of NEW items!  (Canadians only).  Basically, that means you receive all the retired items for FREE!

So...enjoy shopping each day and thanks for your help!
