Here is the list of all of the goodies that will be up for auction, all proceeds going to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, starting right now! Bidding will continue throughout the day tomorrow (FRIDAY) and will end at midnight Friday night EST (11/9).
So here’s how it works:
-Pick the goodie(s) you would like to bid on
-Send an email to fitnessista at gmail dot com with this in the subject: SANDY AUCTION [ITEM NUMBER] [Current bid amount] – please follow this format as it will be so much easier for me to update the spreadsheet with the highest bids!
-I’ll email the current highest bidder back as I update this page throughout the day on Friday. I’ll tweet and Facebook to spread the word each time max bids are updated here!
-The winning bidder will have exactly 24 hours after the event ends to make their donation to the Red Cross. If this step isn’t completed in time, the respective items will then be offered to the next highest bidder.
-Please assume that all items are for US shipment only, unless otherwise indicated (like the macaroons)
Thank you so much to everyone who donated the following treats and goodies- I’m lucky to be surrounded by such a strong network of people willing to help others in need.
This has ENDED as of midnight EST on Friday night. Winning bid amounts are below. If multiple people bid at the same winning amount, the first person to email in their bid was chosen as the winner. Thank you again to everyone for your help and participation! I know your efforts will be appreciated by many in need.

14) A dozen gorgeous roses, shipped anywhere in the US, courtesy of Alexandra and Fiesta Roses (which she and her family own)- $75
We have farms in Ecuador and offer live, fresh cut, stem-dyed flowers where each petal on the rose is a different color. We can ship anywhere in the United States and would allow the highest bidder to send any dozen of their choice to anyone they wanted with an optional gift message included…the red, white and blue might be pertinent since Veterans’ Day is coming up or the Harvest Roses for Thanksgiving.
15) Crochet Snack Bunch from Mara at Whats for Dinner? -$25
The winning bidder can choose the macaron “flavor” and color of the coffee mug. These would be so sweet as a gift to a little girl!
