A couple of days back, Miltown-based photog Troy Freund alerted me to a shopping event that y'all will likely have a keen interest in: Wisconsin Partners for SustainAbility's--that's right, the "A" is capitalized--Green Online Holiday Auction. Organized to benefit some worthy causes in South Central Wisconsin, including Dane County TimeBank, WYOU--mmm, nutty community access TV--and Community Groundworks at Troy Gardens, the auction is running right this minute and will remain open until the evening of December 6, 2009, exclusively on The Mighty Internets™.
They've got twenty-eight items up for bid in the Arts/Crafts category currently. One of the few listed as having the highly sought after, MasterCard tagline value of "Priceless" is Arnold Wood's Hamlet, proving once again that slapping a price on art is completely and totally subjective. Harlequin/Shakespeare/thespian art lovers, however, may well fall into a swoon by this assessment, making their mouse hand shake uncontrollably with excitement and adding many more zeros to their bid inadvertently. Do I hear a kagillion dollars? Sold!
There's lots of other categories--like food, coffee, jewelry, etc.--chock-full o' stuff and services donated by Wisco-owned businesses and companies, such as Troy's bid item of One Day of Commercial Photography, which, by the way, is also listed with a value of "Priceless", but we'll easily go along with that one.
