SOLD, Sold, Sold. That was the lovely sound ringing out from Mandy Mayhem-Bullock, our auctioneer, on Sunday afternoon, October 15.
I had planned to take photos but my plans and reality didn’t coincide. ( Thanks to Philip and Lee for sharing their photos) The eftpos machine was revving, bidders were competing and chairs were disappearing out the door. There was plenty of friendly banter, rivalry and applause. Sincere thanks to the poets, the artists, the team at Resene Colorshop, Gillions Funeral Services and everyone who attended on Sunday afternoon – we are rapt with the result for Poems in the Waiting Room.
