Auction

With great thanks to many generous donors, we have some amazing lots in the Graffham St Giles Great Virtual 2020 Christmas Fair Auction – unique experiences or treats that, normally, money could not buy, oodles of delicious food and drinks, many sourced from within our own village, and some fab “not on the high street” items that would make perfect Christmas gifts.

Scroll down below to find out how to bid and read the T&Cs, then follow the links for details on each of the fantastic lots on offer: 

A – Treats money can’t buy

B – Perfectly delicious

C – Not on the high street

How it works

Submit your bids – a separate bid for each lot – before the auction closes at 12 noon on Saturday 12 December:

  • By email to graffhamchristmasfair@gmail.com or
  • By hand, at the village shop or
  • On Facebook’s Graffham Noticeboard, as lots are posted there.

Ensure that each bid clearly indicates:

  • The lot you are bidding for.
  • The amount you are offering (in whole pounds only – fractions of pounds will be invalid).
  • Your first and family name.
  • Your email address and telephone number

The status of each lot will be updated regularly until the auction closes with the latest leading bid and bidder – so keep an eye on the lot listing pages here (click on the links above or below) or watch for displays at the village shop. 

You may increase your bid at any date and time before the auction closes by submitting a fresh bid. 

Successful bidders will be notified after the auction closes.  Payment for items purchased must be made in full within seven days.  Arrangements will then be made to hand over the lot to the purchaser.
