These auction items will be available for members to view and bid on for a yet to be determined period of time during the meeting. Bidders may enter their initials or name when entering a bid amount. A bid increase is suggested to be 25 cents. When the time has ended for the auction, the highest bidder will pay the owner of the auction item the amount of the winning bid.

The owner of the sold item(s) will then pay the Tropical Postcard Club 10% of the winning bid.

Members may place items in the auction as a donation to the club where all proceeds will go to the club if sold. These items will show "club" as owner. Unsold items will be returned to the member who donates the item(s).
