2023 Summer Auction

NSN’s vision is a world in which all people value the power of storytelling and its ability to connect, inspire, and instill respect within our hearts and communities.

The money raised by this auction will help NSN fulfill its mission to advance all forms of storytelling within the community through promotion, advocacy, and education.

Perhaps you have some items which need a new home.

Last summer, 145 items were donated by 86 donors. There were 84 bidders and $7,500 was raised. We are hoping, with your help, to do better this summer.

Here are types of items which have sold well in the past:

  • Art: quilts, wall hangings, paintings
  • Clothing
  • Food
  • Gift certificates
  • Jewelry
  • Storytelling accessories: puppets, musical instruments and other story enhancers
  • Storytelling books, CDs, DVDs
  • Storytelling conference and storytelling festival registrations
  • Storytelling services (marketing, recording, coaching, photography, house concerts, etc.)

Minimum value for each donated item: $35

Items must be new or nearly-new in excellent condition.

So please start thinking about what you’d like to donate this year. Full instructions on how to donate will be emailed on June 15th.
