Please read full event description. It IS different than last time. All the information in the description has been updated!

Mostly FREE Stuff ACUTION
3:00pm to 5:30pm

I'm having an auction, and the majority of things will start at FREE. 

That means I'll put it on the table and the opening bid is "free." So you can say, "I'd like that for free." Then if nobody else wants it, it is yours for free. If someone else wants it, they have to say, "Well, I'd be willing to pay 50 cents for it." And if you want it more than that, then you'd say, "Well, I'll pay $2 for it." And then maybe they'll say, "Okay, it is yours then."

Many items, however, will have a starting minimum bid.

*Please do NOT bring anything to the auction that you'd like to get rid of. We have plenty, thanks.*

ITEMS IN AUCTION

Items will include (but are not limited to): kitchen supplies, books, fabric, art supplies, art, Mary Kay products, furniture (maybe), and clothing as well.

WHAT TO BRING

— Obviously, please bring cash. You may want to bring quarters to up-bid someone who wants something for free that you also want.

— Bring cloth bags to bring your stuff home in. Paper or plastic will due if you don't have cloth bags, but I find cloth a lot easier to manage personally.

RAW POTLUCK
3:30pm to 7:00pm

This is a raw vegan potluck. That essentially means, "whole plant food ingredients only." 

You do NOT have to have any experience with making raw food. Just bring some fresh organic fruit or romaine lettuce if you're unfamiliar with raw vegan cuisine. 

The "go raw" chips at Feel Rite are agave-free if you'd like to bring those. (They're made with sesame seeds, dates, spices, coconut, cacao, etc.)

— Bring one dish per person attending (or enough fresh fruit or lettuce to feed one person; two heads of lettuce or two packs of romaine hearts feeds one person)

— Do not use agave or other refined sweeteners (syrups or powders) in your dish. Also, minimal nuts and no walnuts is also appreciated. 

— Please no oil on salads, and dressings on the side.

CHOCOLATE SALE

The chocolates are organic and raw. 

Some of the flavors I MAY have: 

Maca Chocolate
Fudge Chocolate
Hint of Mint Chocolate
Chili Chocolate
Crunchy Almond Chocolate
Sweet & Sour "Candies" (goldenberry treats)
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

(Some flavors are nut-free, some flavors are date-free, some are honey-free, some are even cacao-bean free, etc.)

The chocolates are $4 for 2 ounces. Compare to organic raw chocolates at Feel Rite which are $7 for 1.5 ounces! And I use better ingredients (no agave!).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
