And….it’s here! Our annual Netroots Nation Holiday Bazaar has begun. This popular auction highlights the talented folks in our community by giving you the opportunity to bid on dozens of handcrafted items (while supporting the important work of Netroots Nation.) And, oh what a great selection we have for you this year.

Let’s travel below the orange squiggly and check out a few of the 76 items up for bid (and even more on the way.) And did I mention the auction ends Tuesday, December 4th? So start bidding!

Kossack Eric Lewis (ericlewis0) shows you how to create flowers out of junk or other stuff with his signed book, Garbage Flowers. This auction item comes with needle-nose pliers and several lengths of wire "stem" for your creations.

Oh, he's generously donated two copies, so look out for both of them!







What’s that you say? Pumpkin Chocolate Loaf? Yes please. Can I have another? I CAN? wohoo! With this auction item you get TWO Pumpkin Chocolate loaves, one to keep and one to share.







This hand carved puzzle of a French Bulldog may not answer the age-old question of “Who’s a Good Dog!?!”, but you’ll still have fun putting it together.













Isn’t this necklace gorgeous? The necklace has a cloisonné pendant with a peacock on it. The beads are light green and amber. The set comes with matching earrings.









Thanks so much to all the folks who donated to this auction! If you have made a donation, please let everyone know in the comments below.

And thank you to my co-chairs of this event, Joan McCarter and Beth Becker. We are so proud to bring this auction to you, which showcases talented Kossacks and other progressives and supports Netroots Nation at the same time.

Finally, a big thank you to the Netroots Nation Development Director, Karen Kolber who works tirelessly behinds the scene to bring the auction to life.

Okay, bid away folks!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
