I thought it was clever as could be but you know what?? Not a single person bid on it. The whole point of our bazaar is to make money to support our programs. I put a minimum bid of $25 on it and not a single solitary soul bid. I had more than $25 in to it so there was no way I was going to let anyone bid less than that.
I was really disappointed that no one wanted it. Pretty darn dejected, actually. That is, until my friend Cathy came along and bought it for her cottage. Now I could have been okay bringing it home for my couch as I really did like it but Cathy said she'd think of me when she looks at it and that's good enough for me.
But that's the last time I bust my butt to get something ready for the bazaar only to see it not getting any bids. The same thing happened last year. I may be dumb but I'm not stupid -- no third time for me!
