Well, Carol Dean is spending the weekend with the amazing contents of The Best Little Bead Box(es), dividing them into 10 lots, and photographing the contents of each lot so that we can get the eBay auctions up and running.
The first thing we should say is a huge THANK YOU to the incredibly generous and talented beaders who made this whole thing possible. We were absolutely stunned by the generosity that was shown during the 12 weeks of this project, and we are honored that everyone participated in our "little" fundraising effort for Beads of Courage.
That said, we now have a brand-new eBay identity set up. You can find us on eBay under the seller name, "TheBestLittleBeadBoxProject".
Each week, there will be 2 lots of beads up for auction on eBay. Auctions will begin on Wednesdays at 12:00 a.m (midnight) EST and will end at 12:00 a.m. (midnight) on Sunday. There will be a minimum opening bid of $50, and a reserve bid on each lot. If the reserve bid for a particular lot is not met, that auction will be re-listed the following week.
Also, please bear in mind that we may change how the auctions are set up, depending on the circumstances and feedback we get from buyers and bidders. We want to make sure that we run these auctions to the best of our abilities, and that might mean that we tweak things a bit as we go. Don't worry, though - all of the most up to date information about the auctions will be posted here on the blog!
So, keep an eye on the eBay account. Our first auction is set to begin this Wednesday, January 26th, at 12:00 a.m. (midnight) EST with two lots from The Best Little Bead Box(es).
And to our amazing 12 beaders from Round 1: thank you so, so much. We couldn't have done any of this without YOU!
