If you're a veteran Windycon member, you remember our rocking and rolling art auctions and how much fun they could be, even if you didn't have anything in mind to bid on when you walked in
the door. Given the state of the economy, our art auctions have been less lively lately, so we cut the number of bids required to take a piece to the auction in 2012. That helped, but we also
had a lot of people requesting to look around when they came in to pick up their winning bid pieces.
With that in mind, we're also changing from doing Quick Sale to allowing After Auction sales for a fixed price (set by the artist, of course.) We have run Quick Sale for several years now
and it does not seem to be increasing the amount of money we are sending to our artists, so we would rather send pieces to auction where our excellent auctioneers can keep the bidding moving.
For those of you worried about bidding while at the con on a day-badge, there are two ways to work it out. First, the auction is Saturday night and we do have pickup for people on day-badges
after the auction. If you are on a Friday only badge, you can give your badge (and payment) to someone you know who will be there on Saturday or Sunday and have that person pick it up for you.
You must give them the badge since all bids are in the computer by badge number.
Also, please note the change for where to send mail-in art in the rules. Space reservations should still be sent to
