STRIVE’s 16th annual auction is going virtual this year!

STRIVE will be using a well-known auction website called “Bidding For Good”. The platform is simple and user friendly. Not only will you have the ability to browse our items from your own home, in your own time, you will also be able to be notified when someone outbids you and more. We hope you’ll enjoy it!

Bidding will be open starting Wednesday, October 21st, 2020 and will close at 11:59pm Wednesday, October 28th, 2020.

This year, our auction will be free to attend! In lieu of a ticket purchase, we are asking our attendees (if willing and interested) to purchase a gift certificate to their favorite local restaurant, shop, etc. to donate to the auction. Support your favorite local business and STRIVE at the same time!

We will still have the same great categories you know and love, plus a brand new category in 2020- STRIVE's Flea Market Flip! We’re looking to our community to re-furbish or create some things in their home, and send them our way! We’d love to auction off what you have or can create!

Ways to get involved in our Flea Market Flip:

-Do you have jewelry, art or other slightly used items that you think others would enjoy? We’d love to hear about it!

-Are you handy and can do woodworking, reupholster an old chair, make a bookcase out of an antique ladder? Have you picked up a new crafty hobby while in quarantine?  We’d love to see it!

-Not crafty and already did your Spring cleaning? If you have the means, boost our Maine community economy by purchasing a gift certificate from your favorite local business and donate that!

-Are you a local business that would like to be involved by donating an item? We will gladly accept new items or gift cards as well!

The possibilities are really endless!
