THE AUCTION IS NOW CLOSED.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS, AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO
HELPED US SAY FAREWELL TO ENDICOTT WEST in community.



Hey!  Look what else we've dug up while packing up our beloved arts retreat!  Even if you've never been here, this is a great chance for you to keep a piece of Endicott West history . . . or to acquire unique works of art by Terri Windling, the creator and presiding spirit of Endicott Studio, the Journal of Mythic Arts, and the original Boston Endicott Studio - which gave its name to Tucson's Endicott West.

Thanks to everyone who bid on our previous auctions this week.  Running concurrently with this one is the Pre-Raphaelite Blow-Out, which also includes boxes of Liberty Prints & Guatemalan Fabrics from the Endicott West retreat.

1) BOOKS BY AUTHORS
who have stayed at ENDICOTT WEST over the years
Signed & Personalized by them to Endicott West*:

Also visit the Endicott Pre-Raphaelite Auction (last post) - bid here for Morris fabric, PLUS Guatemalan & Cowboy Quilting Fabric from Endicott West!


HOW TO BID:

1) LOOK below in Comments for the SUBJECT LINE for either #1 (BOOKS + t-shirt + sweatshirt) or #2 (SKETCHES).

2) Click REPLY UNDER the LAST (most recent) HIGH BID on the one you're interested in (NOT in the General Comments for this post! and NOT under the "Minimum Bid" Comment, either), being sure to bid higher than the person before you did. And say what you're bidding on, just to avoid confusion.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A LIVEJOURNAL member to bid:  JUST COMMENT as a GUEST - but leave a name so we know who you are.

HIGHEST BID in each category at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, January 29th wins.

We will notify you HERE in Comments,
so check back to see if you won so we can contact you.  If we don't hear from you in 48 hours, the prize will go to the next highest bidder.  Nothing will be mailed out before we have received your PayPal payment of your pledged bid, which should be within 48 hours of our hearing from you.

FINE PRINT:
• U.S. only - no mailing abroad:  Sorry, but the extra work of figuring postage & filling in customs forms is just not something any of us can cope with as we close up the house.  If you've got a friend in the US who will accept the package for you, that would work for us!
• Books will be mailed by Feb. 8th, at Media Rate.

Question on the lovely book collection
May I enquire as to whether or not Charles de Lint's "Our Lady of the Harbour" is the Axolotl Press edition (ie, hardback) or a paperback? I cannot tell from the photo.

Re: Question on the lovely book collection
Yes, it is the hardcover - and in pristine condition - dust jacket a tiny bit rumpled along one edge, but the interior is untracked. (Sorry, I"m not a Rare Book person - I know my language is imprecise; detailed photo available on request.)

Thanks very much for asking.

I've kept the photos a bit lo-res to keep the size of the LJ post down - but I'm very happy to answer all questions about the Stuff, and to email better photos if anyone needs to see them.

Re: Question on the lovely book collection
Hi Ellen,

Thank you for your quick reply. :)

If you truly don't mind, a higher res photo of the close-up of the books would be lovely (my eyesight is only so-so). Would it also be possible to get a higher rez of the two top groupings of T. Windling's art? Or at least the top left one (with the woman with the brown background at center)? My email is books at thehinckleys dot com.

Many thanks!

I'll send you the hi-res version of the stack of books photo.

There are bigger, clearer versions of the Box of Sketches photos on my Facebook page:

Re: Question on the lovely book collection
Hi again,

Thank you for the photo. I didn't get it, but I seem to be having some email issues. :-\

I am wondering roughly what sizes the sketches are? I don't know the size of the grey wood slats (perhaps 1x4"s?), plus there's a wide variety of sketch sizes. Could you please provide the rough dimensions of a couple of the sketches so I could get a good idea?

Thank you,
Julianna

Re: Question on the lovely book collection
Julianna, I'll send the photo today.

Sketches & prints were photographed on an old picnic table, whose slats are each 4 1/2 inches wide - you can see where each begins & ends. Hope that helps clear up the scale.

Thanks so much....
Thanks so much Ellen and Delia for your hard work and ongoing support of Endicott West all these many years. Without you, there would have been no fairy writing and art place in the desert. I speak for many I'm sure, when I say thank you.

Hi
I'm confused- could find where to bid last night, but not today. Am I lost (again!), or did the auction end early? (PLEASE don't tell me today isn't Wednesday!!!)

In any case, all the best with the move

Linda G., please place your bid as a REPLY to the previous bid on the item you want, rather than to this entire message.

Thanks - and good luck!
