Beautiful Items for Sale at the GAAQG Gift Shop (former Bid or Buy/ Silent Auction)
Thanks to the generous donation of items made by our members at our last in-person 2018 quilt show, the Silent Auction raised $3,000 – which covers a significant part of the fixture and furniture expense of our show. For 2022 we hope to raise even more funds to support the cost of producing our quilt show.
We’ve made it even easier for you to shop, shop, SHOP! Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card.
Rather than host another Silent Auction, we’re featuring a GAAQG Gift Shop at the 2022 Quilt Show. During the past few shows we have gotten away from the original auction bidding format of this fund raiser. Many awesome items sold at the “buy now” price, rather than in a competitive auction. Bidding was rare on most things and this name change reflects how the sale operates best.
Many shoppers don’t want to wait or return to the room frequently to monitor and complete their purchases. The Gift Shop format will give shoppers INSTANT GRATIFICATION–WOO HOO!
Gift Shop shoppers can expect NEW and recent vintage (less than 5 years old) items that demonstrate good workmanship.
Generous members donated art quilts, wall hangings, bed quilts, table toppers, placemats, small handmade gift items, greeting cards, post cards, bags/purses, dolls etc. We will not be selling pictures, knick knacks or sewing notions (unless they are handmade).
The Quilt Show Gift Shop will feature hand-sewn items that reflect the skills of our members.
Our members are tremendously talented, and we anticipate that this year’s effort will be an even greater success!
The Gift Shop will be open during Quilt show hours:
Saturday 9 am – 5 pm
Sunday 11 am – 5 pm
