2013 Castine---silent auctions

 Silent Auction was held one day during meal times and conducted the traditional way---you placed a bid, and upped your bid until closing time. Raised about $2400 for Guild School.

A sampling of Open Bid items held during meal times Sunday-Thursday. You put in a bid on paper and placed in a box, and highest bid wins the item. You had no idea what anyone else bid. Winners were posted on bulletin board the next day.

Items for Open Bid tended to be cast-offs and included items such as old miniature magazines, bottle caps, and an empty cigar box, although occasional treasures such as Bespaq furniture items were included. Magazines didn't seem to do well, as they were placed on the tables for a donation of your choosing in the final two days of school.
