Tannery Pond Center’s 2021 ONLINE AUCTION is May 28 thru June 13 at 8:00 pm. There are 100 terrific items up for grabs – fun experiences, gear for adventuring, unique gifts, dining out, one-of-a-kind art, cool stuff to give Dad (Father’s Day is June 20th!), and much more. Even a one ton Garnet boulder!
PLUS… everyone who registers on the auction website (whether or not you even enter a bid) will be entered automatically into a FREE RAFFLE!
By purchasing an item in the auction, you are helping to ensure the long-term viability of Tannery Pond Center and helping us to continue to provide quality arts and community programs to the Gore Region and southern Adirondacks. A portion of the auction proceeds will be used to build Tannery Pond Center’s endowment fund, with the remainder to be used for programming, community outreach and necessary operations. By purchasing an item in the auction, you are helping to ensure the long-term viability of Tannery Pond Center and helping us to continue to provide quality arts and community programs to the Gore Region and southern Adirondacks.

How do I bid on an item?
Begin placing your bids on May 28th. Click here, then follow the directions on the website to register and then start bidding. You may enter as many bids as you want on as many items as you want.
Bid early and often. And remember to check back on your bids to see if you are still in the lead. If you’ve ever seen an online auction, you know that much of the action happens in the final hours and minutes. Be sure to keep tabs on the status of your bids all the way to the end of the bidding at 8:00 pm on June 13. After it’s going, going, going, it will be gone!
If I win, how do I get the items?
First, congrats on the winning bid! Winners are asked to pick up items at the community center by July 3. Please plan to do so during regular business hours (Wed-Sat) or call 518- 251-2505 x128 to make other arrangements. You are also welcome to ask a friend to pick up for you, though we ask that you let us know beforehand.
Unfortunately, we are not able to ship items – unless they fit in a standard size envelope.
How does the FREE RAFFLE work?
Every person who registers at the auction website will be entered to win – even if you do not place a bid!
The winner will receive a pair of tickets to each of 4 performances to be sponsored by Tannery Pond Center – $160 total value!
The raffle winner will be announced on June 16. By entering the raffle, you consent to having your name appear on Tannery Pond Center’s website and social media if you win. You may decline participation in the raffle by contacting the director at info (at) tannerypondcenter (dot) com.
