We are excited to announce the return to our ongoing postal project with the release of box 8! This auction features work from Enzo Marra, Archie Franks, Melissa Kime, Tim Patrick, Harry Whitelock, Fiona Berry, Phoebe Mash. The group is raising money for Mind. More info here.

The dates of the auctions are as follows:
February 2023    
Monday 20th         Enzo Marra
Tuesday 21st         Archie Franks
Wednesday 22nd Melissa Kime
Thursday 23rd       Tim Patrick
Friday 24th             Harry Whitelock   
Saturday 25th        Fiona Berry
Sunday 26th           Phoebe Mash

As usual, here are the rules:

Bidding starts at 10am with an ‘auction post’.  To bid, comment on the post with the amount you wish to bid in £GBP. This must be at least £5 higher than the previous offer. DO NOT post this as a reply, but as a new comment. Note: Instagram is slow to update, and this system is not perfect, so get bids in early to avoid disappointment! Don’t delay!

At 8pm if the highest bid has stood for over 5 minutes the bidding is over. However, if the highest bid is less than 5 minutes old, you can still submit a higher offer to win the artwork. If this happens everyone has another 5 minutes to place a higher offer. This continues until the highest bid has stood for over 5 minutes. This system is in place to stop auction sniping by placing winning offers in the final seconds of the auction. We will let you know who wins the bidding and explain how to provide payment.  

40% of sales will go to the chosen charity, 40% to support the artist, and 20% to keep the project running. So if you’re unable to bid, please share to help the project!

Keep it fun and friendly, happy bidding!

The Minutes Team,
Mark, Abi and Oli.
