DON'T MISS THIS!! PSBA's Annual Bonsai Auction - June 1st, 1:00PM at PBM


Our annual auction will be this coming Saturday, June 1 from noon to about 4 pm.  The auction features both a live auction of trees and a silent auction which includes trees and other bonsai-related items.  Members are encouraged to bring unwanted bonsai items to enter into the silent auction.  Sellers in the silent auction should arrive as early as possible.  Silent auction items will be accepted starting at 10 am and no items will be accepted after 12:30pm.  There are a few changes to the silent auction this year.  There is a $25 minimum for auction lots (lesser value items can be combined to reach the minimum) and there is a maximum of 5 lots per person. Pre-registration including paddle purchase of $5 is available on the PSBA website here: (  Paddle proceeds are donated to PBM.  All sellers and buyers must purchase a paddle, so pre-registration is strongly encouraged.  Sellers are reminded that unsold items in the silent auction are still subject to the 10% seller fee and must be picked up by the end of the day.  Any items left may be considered as donated to PSBA.
We encourage all members to come to the auction, even if you are not planning to buy or sell anything.  It is a good opportunity to meet other members, see some great trees and see exciting auction action.
We look forward to seeing all of you there!!
