Our annual button auction on Friday night provides financial support to our Society and a fun opportunity for our members to experience the thrill of participating in an auction that could result in winning button treasures.
A successful auction requires generous people to donate items. When donating, you have two choices:
1) You can donate an item and have 100% of the earnings, donated to the NYSBS
2) you can sell an item and have 20% of the earnings donated to NYSBS and you keep the remaining 80%.
Donations are collected at 2 PM on Friday of the show. Bring your item(s) to the designated room. Let the Auction chair know your donation choice.
