Buy your face mask & help the homeless

24 August update:

It's a FACE OFF. My final two face masks are now on offer. They are entirely made from scraps and patched together.

About this auction:

This charitable auction of face masks aims to support the homeless in Oxford.  It combines two campaigns in one: keep yourself and your loved ones safe from COVID-19 and help the homeless in Oxford. All proceeds will go to the Oxford Homeless Medical Fund.

The face masks are mostly library or Oxford-themed. They are sturdy, washable, 2-ply with a pocket for a filter (not supplied), and elastic band round the ears. The elastic bands can be replaced when they eventually tire out.

Each face mask is unique and hand-sewn from patterned tea towel cloth and cotton lining.

There are two sizes:
S: small adult / large children
M: medium adult

More face masks will be added to this site over time, so keep checking! If you need a small (children sized) or L (large adult) face mask, use Contact.

Good luck with your bidding, keep safe and thank you for helping the homeless.

Where does the fabric come from?
You can order the tea towels, used for the front of the face masks, from the Bodleian Library online shop and Penguin online shop.

The cotton lining comes from off-cuts. Anything goes!

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.
