Robert's Snow 2007: Auction 2

Well, Robert’s Snow Auction 1 ended on Friday afternoon. I bid on five snowflakes—but, unfortunately, did not win any. I hope to win at least one in Auction 2. I already own eight snowflakes—four from Robert’s Snow 2004 and four from Robert’s Snow 2005. I also got my daughter a snowflake as Christmas gift in 2005. I take my snowflake bidding seriously!

Auction 2 will begin accepting bids on Monday, Nov. 26 at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) with a starting bid of $100 for each snowflake. Bid increments are $20. All bids must be in before 5:00 pm (Eastern Standard Time) on Friday, Nov. 30. Don't forget that 100 percent of the proceeds from this online auction will benefit sarcoma research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. All but $25 of the winning bid is tax deductible.

I'm so bummed that the one snowflake I want (the Susan Miller) is the one you've bid on! I suppose this is what happens when you get the whole kidlitosphere involved in this effort. I've now got my eye on Hanging Popcorn in Beaver Lodge.
I hope you win a snowflake!

I hope I win at least one snowflake this year. Some of the snowflakes don't show as well on the Internet as they do in person. It's great to see fellow bloggers bidding on snowflakes. I believe at least three kidlit bloggers won snowflakes in the first auction.
