2007  - MAY MEETING - Silent Auction

Go Back to Scrapbook Index      

Before the Silent Auction started, members were treated to a  fabulous Cinco de Mayo meal created by Gerry White (Beads by Design owner) and Stephanie White.  Yum

  

  
We had a short meeting led by outgoing co-president Carl Andrews and continuing co-president Alice St Germain.  Sitting is Diane Kovach who is our new co-president. 

There were FIVE tables of items up for bid as well as a table full of vendor literature.    Here are the tables before the auction started.  So many goodies  to bid on - Glass Tools, Frit, Murrine, silver wire, presses, gift certificates, all donated to Southern Flames from vendors.  There were also beads from visiting artists and from our own members and even two new oxygen concentrators. 

 

   

 

Vendor literature - brochures, catalogs, and cards.

Once the bidding started, it was hard to see the items because so many very busy bidding.

After each table closed, we collected the items we won and stood on line to pay.  Cristie Prince and Diane Kovach collect money from Renee Taylor
