Friday the 22nd is the Fall Equinox! To welcome the autumn season I'm hosting an Instagram auction starting at 4pm Pacific/ 6pm Central/ 7pm Eastern. Click here for a time converter if you don't live in any of these time-zones (or just type the conversion you're looking for into Google).
The auction will have 4 items up for bid: Two earrings, a bracelet, and a necklace.
There's only one of each design in my inventory right now. So once it goes in the auction--it's gone.
"So how does an Instagram Auction work?"
Once items are posted, bidding is as simple as commenting (unfortunately, it's impossible to include those who don't have Instagram accounts).
You comment with your bid, bidding in increments of $1 (usd), and tag the person who you are outbidding so that they're aware of your bid.
When the auction ends on Sunday at the same time (4 pm Pacific/ 6 pm Central/ 7 pm Eastern) whoever bid last wins the item!
"How Does Payment Work?"
Once you win an item, I will contact you through Instagram Direct Messages to get your email address.
Then I'll send the invoice to be paid by the due date (24 hours) on the invoice otherwise the second place winner will get a chance to grab the item.
Payment will happen through PayPal by default, but if you'd prefer to go through a different checkout system where you can just enter your credit card, you can pay through Etsy alternatively.
"What About Shipping?"
NOTE: Items will not be shipped until Wednesday the 27th. The delay is due to a family event.
Add +$4 for shipping within the US and +$12 for shipping internationally. All items will come in a 100% recycled jewelry box tucked inside a padded envelope for safe keeping.
Within the US, items will arrive in 3-5 business days from the 27th. International shipping can take 1-4 weeks, depending on how far the package is going.
If more than one item is won, shipping will only be charged once.
I received emails and comments that I should do another auction, and I'm super excited. It's always fun. This time it will last 48 hours instead of 24 hours since it felt like it was over too quickly last time. Also, this time I will be using more recent items instead of older inventory.
Happy Almost Fall!
