Silent Auction-1950s Gingham Cotton Swing Dress

I've found a great auction website that will host my little silent auctions all in the name of charity! In case some of you don't know, 10% of all my sales (website, ebay, etsy) are donated to local women's shelters here in Toronto. So 10% of the results of these auctions will also be donated to charity.

Using, I will list the item up for bidding on this blog and also the Some Like it Vintage blog. A link and password will be provided to view the auction and/or participate. Participants can view the auction anonymously, or if they have a 32auctions account, they can join the auction. In order to bid you need an account, but it's FREE! I will still accept private bids if left as comments on my blog  or sent to

This I hope will help keep this auction straightforward, honest, clear and easy to access. It is more intimate than the ebay behemoth!  Detailed photos below.

Auction ID: gingham
