Club Auction (Fund raiser)
Sunday August 18, 2019
Bring your items to the Orchid classroom (next to Magnolia)
Please bring trees, prebonsai, garden plants, tools, supplies, books, art or any other item of interest for donation – your club needs your support.
• Have your items at the event well before 1:00pm, to give us time to tag them for the auctioneer, and so the buyers have time to preview the items for sale.
We have about six guest artists each year that do workshops for club members and critique material at club meetings. Airfare and other expenses are only part of the overhead for the many benefits provided by membership in the Atlanta Bonsai Society.
Take a chance, find buried treasure in raw stock, or find a new finished bonsai for your collection. Anything can show up in the auction. There will be tools, pots and trees of all types.
The ABS Bonsai Auction is your best opportunity to purchase excellent materials and supplies for your collection, and benefit your club at the same time.
• Beginners, come and get a deal on some great pre-bonsai to work with.
• Collectors, you can donate some of the trees you have neglected, and upgrade your collection with some new ones.
• Members, this is a great event to bring a friend and introduce them to bonsai.
We welcome donated items that will be auctioned off with full proceeds going to the club.
