FPAP Silent Auction

This page is for a Piquette Art Fair silent auction that will conclude at 8 pm on Sunday, July 11 and all bids are final at that time. Bids listed on this page will be accurate at least up until midnight of Saturday, July 10. During the Piquette Art Fair a current bid as of the start of the art fair will be shown but any bids that night will be a “secret” bid meaning that you will not see what other people are bidding so please take that into account when making any bid during the art fair. As the Piquette Art Fair will have timed tickets it would not be possible for bidders to stay for the entirety of the auction. This is the best way to give everyone an equal opportunity to make their bid.

Winning bidders will be contacted starting Monday, July 12. Winning bidders will have two weeks to make payment. After that time the second place bidder will be contacted and be awarded the winning bid. Below are the current bid packages available. For each item you will see an estimated value and the starting and/or current bid. If you would like to make a bid then please fill out the form below. New items will be added as additional items are donated for the auction so please check back to find unique art and help raise funds that go towards the operation of the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant.

If your auction item requires shipping then all shipping and handling costs are the responsibility of the winning bidder.

Please note that the Pewabic tile frame and the FPAP beam serving tray were made from salvaged flooring that was recycled from the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant.
