Anyone can donate! Your items will go to a good home and you’ll be sharing with your community. Please consider clearing out some space in your studio and donating items such as:
- Art books
- Rare Tools
- Small Handmade Objects
- Brand New Tools
Please donate new, unused items only, unless their value is increased by their age, as in the case of antiques or out of print books.
*SNAG reserves the right to place any donated items in either the Silent Auction or Tool in the Hat events, as deemed appropriate.
HOW TO DONATE:
Fill out one online Donation Form for EACH item you wish to donate. This form helps us accurately track your information and the information about your donation. We will have tablets with access to this form available for on-site donation, but if you know what you are donating, you can save time by filling it out in advance.
Drop off your donation on site:
Drop off donations on-site at the conference at the Silent Auction site located inside the Vendor Room on Wednesday, May 22nd from 3:00-6:00 pm.
Ship your donation:
If you prefer to ship your item(s) in advance, please include a printed copy of your online donation form and ship to our shipping liaison using this shipping label: 2019 Shipping Label – Silent Auction/TitH

This year your bidder number, which is unique to you, will be assigned to you automatically when you register for the conference! Use the time you saved by not having to register separately for a bidder number to get your bidding on!
How to Bid:
Each item in the Silent Auction will be paired with a bid sheet that has the item’s description and spaces for you to bid using your bidder number.
- Be sure to use your bidder number, not your name to identify your bid.
- Please bid only in the increments listed (for example, if you are bidding on an item that is at $20 and the bid increment is $10, your next bid needs to be $30 or more).
- Check back often to be sure you are not outbid.
- Be sure to check back at or after auction close (Friday, May 24th at 5:00PM) to see if you won your item!
Silent Auction Item Pickup:
Winning bidders must be prepared to pick up and pay for their items at the Silent Auction site on Saturday, May 25th from 10:00 am and 1:00 pm.
- All payments will be run through Square, and must be paid for with a credit card. Sorry, we are unable to take payment by cash or check.
- SNAG is unable to ship items you have won. If you are unable to pick up your items at the appointed time, please make alternate arrangements with a friend to pay for and pick them up.
- Items not claimed by 1:00PM on Saturday, May 25th will remain property of SNAG to use in future fundraisers.
