CoMA's first ever Ebay Auction!
AUCTION RUNS FROM JULY 26-AUGUST 1, 2021

It's that time of year again when CoMA would like your donated jewelry/tools/gems/books/etc. for the Symposium auction.  This auction is one of the reasons the this and futures Conferences are still affordable!  Your cast away items are solid gold to the organization and YOU get the tax write off!  It's a win-win!  Anyone can donate to our Auction. You do not be a member. We invite all our non-member supporters who value our organization and perhaps participate in our Facebook Groups to donate. We would truly appreciate it!

 

THINGS ARE A BIT DIFFERENT THIS YEAR SO PLEASE READ THIS AND THE DONATION FORM THOROUGHLY.

We are set up to receive your donations through the mail and at two drop off locations - one in the Denver Metro area and one in Pueblo - you will also be able to arrange to pick items up in person. Please consider that we will probably be mailing most items to the auction winners and so, please do not donate any toxic, liquid, flammable or extremely fragile items. If you are really keen to donate such items, they will be designated for PICK UP ONLY. You can contact  Joshia or Ryan if you have any questions.

 

Here are some ideas of what to donate:

  • Jewelry: Rings, earrings, brooches, and bracelets, etc. (if you didn't know it yet, we love making AND buying jewelry)
