What?! No! Itís that time already?! The original, one and only, annual Fall auction to benefit Havanese Rescue Inc is scheduled (tentatively) to begin Saturday, October 26 and end Saturday, November 2nd. This will be our 13th year! No superstition here, we are so lucky to have these wonderful dogs in our lives.
I encourage everyone to read the FAQs on our home page, which will be updated along with the item pages as time goes on: http://2013auctionhri.homestead.com/index.html
To make a donation, simply send the item description to me along with a picture (or the link to a webpage where I can find it). Over the years, weíve had every type of item you can imagine up for bid - dog toys, dog carriages/carriers/crates, clothing, treats and accessories, jewelry, artwork, pottery, books and music, toys and games, antiques, homemade cookies and candies, TVs, holiday decorations, handbags, and more. The items donít have to be Havanese-related, or even dog-related, the more variety, the better; you are limited only by your imagination and the ability to box up and mail the items to the winners at the end of the auction. Please try to provide as much information as you can about the item - it saves so much time if I donít have to search the internet for details to better describe to the bidders exactly what theyíre bidding on : )
The sooner I receive descriptions and pictures, the better. If youíre in the habit of putting things off or are "memory-challenged" like me, you may forget and we'll find ourselves scrambling to get your donations added to the auction site before it's too late.LOL
If you have any questions at all, please don't be afraid to ask. Please also freely cross-post this announcement to any lists/groups that you belong to. Thanks so much.
