AuctionWelcome all to the WIPS annual auction, which raises money for our grants and scholarships program. Food and camaraderie will be plentiful. Feel free to bring along some food.

All members and guests are welcome to visit and bid and buy items. We accept cash, check, VISA, MC. There will be 3 auctions: verbal for best items, a tin can auction with anonymous bids and a silent auction where you walk around bidding over prior bidder (until table closes).

Only members may be sellers (or an entity sponsored by a member). Donations to WIPS will be 50% or 100% of realized price. You may claim the amount donated, depending on you tax filing status. Sellers should:

  2. Pre-filled bid sheets are preferred and can be found up and to the right on this page. Minimum bids can be specified.
  3. Sellers must sign an affidavit that all items were obtained legally and with necessary permits. If there is any doubt, do not sell or risk legal action.
  4. Items to be sold can be fossils, casts, minerals, rocks, books, maps, toys, tools, field eqpt. etc. Actually a fairly wide open selection. No weapons or objectionable material.
