GOING ONCE... GOING TWICE...  
A highlight of every NBO conference is the AUCTION. 
 
Both the silent and the live auction provide conference goers a chance to scoop up an original basket or some other treasure while supporting NBO’s scholarship program.
 
And it is time for donations!  Your work, someone else’s work, new baskets, old baskets, books, materials, original jewelry, handmade paper, a gift certificate … anything that might win a bid from a basket maker.
