Bonsai Sale/ SCBK Fundraiser Instructions: Long time SCBK member Robert Stoll is moving and needs to down-size his bonsai collection. He has many nice trees, and has offered to donate some of the proceeds of the sale to SCBK. In the past he has hosted sales at his home, but given the current COVID situation, we felt it would be best to host the sale online. It will be done right here in our SCBK forum. Here’s how it will work. It will be in the format of a silent auction. I will make a seperate post for each of Robert’s trees, with a picture, some information about the tree and the starting bid. Each person who is interested in bidding will reply to that post with their bid amount. Robert has requested that bid increments be $20 (ie if starting bid is $200, the next bid would be $220 then $240 etc.) The last post/highest bid when the auction concludes will win the tree. It is the bidder’s responsibility to contact Robert and arrange for payment and pick-up of the tree. No shipping will be offered. The auction will start as soon as the posts are up online, and will continue until 10 pm on Sunday January 24. Please only reply to the tree posts with bids, let’s not clutter those up with questions or other discussions. If you have a question about the trees or the logistics of the auction, you can post a reply to this thread, or message me directly at email@example.com I would also like each bidder to email me with your full name and contact information, if you are not comfortable having that info online with your post. Good luck to all bidders!
