Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore InStore Silent Auction for the month of November opens on Thursday, Nov. 5 at 10 a.m. and will close on Tuesday, Nov. 25 at noon.
Stained glass and other art glass items are featured for this monthly InStore auction although there are also several other interesting bits and pieces to bid on. A handmade reversible lab quilt, a Norman Rockwell print of Main Street at Christmas, Sakura Santa dinnerware for 12, the Franklin Mint’s Classical Music Album Set, and a rustic antique two door cabinet with a ceramic inlaid border are also competing for this month’s attention. Starting bids for this month’s 16 items range from $20 to $250, so there is something in everyone’s price range. A video catalogue of all offerings is available on Facebook.com/NewBernReStore.
Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, this month’s Auction has a shorter time period, from November 3rd through noon on Nov. 25, so be sure to get in soon to place your bid!
Registration is required, at no charge, to receive a Bidder Number each month. Bidders can revisit the Silent Auction any time during the month to monitor or adjust their personal bid on a desired item. When the InStore Silent Auction is closed each month, the winning bidder is notified and has two days to pay for their item with up to five days to pick it up at the ReStore. Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore is located at 930 Pollock St. in New Bern. Store hours for checking out this month’s Auction, and to place bids, are Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Wednesdays through Saturdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The ReStore will be closed on and the day after Thanksgiving, but will be open on Saturday, Nov. 28 for bid payments.
