Hello, potential bidders.
We are two friends, a German artist, Martina, and a Polish student mental health nurse, Piotr, who live in the same housing co-operative in South London.
In addition to our European provenances, we also share a love of the arts, a wish to continue our lives in the UK and a growing sense of insecurity about our futures here because of the ongoing uncertainty that has followed the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

We therefore put our heads together and came up with the idea of this on-line auction to raise money towards the cost of our applications for British citizenship. The artwork up for your consideration is by artist friends sympathetic to our cause as well as Martina herself. We hope that you find joy in the artwork available, and can take home a piece that you love to have in your home. 
We want to raise a minimum of £3000 to pay for both our fees. This includes all the charges like the registration fee (£1121each) as well as such for the 'Live in the UK' test and the citizenship ceremony itself. If there is any money left over, this will be used to support further applications for other european citizens in the same position, as we very much hope to extend our support to make it easier for people like us to continue to stay in the UK. 
Now, enjoy browsing our beautiful collection,  and thank you so much if you feel able to show your support – both for us and for a belief in solidarity, unity and a shared European identity - by treating yourself to one of these beautiful pieces of contemporary art.
Let the bidding commence…

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
