AUCTION

The Auction at the SouthPole-sium in Scotland was fun with lots of spirited bidding. The proceeds helped cover some of the extra expenses. If you have any Antarctic items you'd like to donate, let me know so I can add them here, and bring them with you. This is a good way to get rid of a duplicate book or two. (Items may be donated by attendees with all the proceeds going to support the costs of the SouthPole-sium, or a 50-50 split with the donor.)
1) Three copies of The Magic of Antarctic Colors about the art of David Abbey Paige, the artist on BAEII. Donated by Laura Kissel.

2) A scarf created for the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, modeled after one of David Abbey Paige's Antarctic pastels. Donated by Laura Kissel.
