Finally we are here, the ROOST Birdhouse Auction. Preparations are underway, getting the birdhouses ready, working with the awesome venue, Custom Lane, to make this one happening event. The ROOST Auction includes 100 of the birdhouses. The birdhouses will be on display from 1oam, Friday May 5 at Custom Lane.
So this what is happening and when on Sunday May 7:
12:30pm – Silent Bid closes for birdhouses 0-50, winning bids announced @ 1pm
2pm – LIVE AUCTION starts for birdhouses 51 – 100.
Bids will start at £4 and increase £1. Cash and cheques accepted. I fully expect a full on brawl between bidders.
There will be several cases of Paolozzi beer, juice, sunshine and all for a good cause. Monies are going to North Edinburgh Arts maker and crafts groups, several of which have recently lost funding. These groups are vital in supporting the community and drawing people towards place, identity, creativity and a feeling of civic pride.
