Are you an artist and do you want to take part in the auction?
Come to Candyland on Friday 10 December between 13-17 and
Bring with you your Auction Thing and a piece of paper with 2-5 sentences about you, the Thing you are selling, and the minimum price you are willing to sell it for (we suggest you do not go over 500 SEK with the minimum price)
The Auction Thing can be an artwork but also an immaterial activity. The immaterial activity needs to be written on a piece of paper and brought physically as well. Example: ‘I will paint your dog’s portrait in oil paint.’ or ‘Every Friday I will send you a scented letter full of Love drawings’ and so forth. We are open-minded!

Are you not an artist and you do not want to sell anything, only watch and have a really good Christmas-scented time?
Just come to Candyland on Saturday 11 December from 13.00 and enjoy the programme!
