About Our Auction
Welcome to Flanders' 2023 Auction!
Farm to Flanders is our single most important fundraising event of the year. We count on this fundraiser to fulfill our mission.
We hope you are wowed by these items, specially selected with you in mind--you who love adventure, nature, art, and are down to earth and sensible, who love your communities, love to share good meals and good times.
Please join me in thanking our many auction donors who have given completely out of the goodness of their heart and are part of our business community. Remember them throughout the year please, as many of these donors give to Flanders year after year.
We will be adding new items right through this month as donations keep coming in. Please check back often!

STATUS UPDATES: Register to receive real-time bid confirmations, outbid notifications and winning bid confirmations by email or text
TWO TYPES of BIDS: You may enter a DIRECT bid which will move the price up to your bid price, OR you may enter a PROXY bid, in which you determine the maximum price you are willing to spend, and the system will automatically bid by minimum increment on your behalf, if you are outbid.
DON'T WAIT TO BID: Don’t wait until the last minute to bid! Our "Extended Bidding" feature automatically extends the bidding end time of an item by 3 minutes when it receives a bid during the final 3 minutes of the auction - for a maximum of 30 minutes beyond the original end time. So... do sign up for notifications!
PAY FOR WINNING BIDS: Payments for winning bids are quick and easy by credit card using the website’s secure payment method when the auction ends. You will not be asked for a credit card until that time. Flanders will accept payment by check if you have your checkbook at Meet, Mingle & More when the event ends.
View all of the auction items live and come to Meet, Mingle & More when we announce winners at 6:30 pm August 27.
