***The auction is closed, thanks so much to the lovely bidders! Email me at lachesisandco@gmail.com with your mailing addresses and I will tell you how to donate and get your pretties on the way!! ***

Here's how it going to work - below I will be posting pictures along with the name and description of the item and the opening bid amount.  All of the items have been hand-knit and designed by me :)  The bidding will remain open until Tuesday evening at 8 pm EDT.

To place a bid, put the name of the item and the amount you are bidding in the comments (at the bottom of this post), bidding will be in increments of $5 (USD).  You may bid as many times and on as many items as you want.  The highest bid when the auction closes will be the winner and I will contact you with the information on where to send your donation.
