We are thrilled to be fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support for the 9th year, including through this online Auction of Artwork, all generously donated by the Gallery’s talented Artists and Makers.
We are hugely grateful to them, and to some anonymous benefactors, for their donations, and to you for visiting this auction site. We’re sure you will find something to tempt you and help Macmillan at the same time!
The Auction runs until Sunday 17th October at 9 pm and if you’re in our neighbourhood all the Auction lots are on display at the Gallery from 28th September. Last day for physical viewing is Saturday 16th October when we hope to offer browsers coffee/tea and cakes at our all-day Macmillan Coffee ‘Morning’ (11.30 am – 4 pm, subject to Covid restrictions at the time, please check in advance.)
How to take part:
Have a good browse of the auction lots – you’ll see that all the starting bids are set very low and please note that some of our higher value lots may have a reserve set. nb : there is no auction lot no1 (long story).
Bidding is straightforward, but if you’re stuck, do contact us for help – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to size or fragility, some lots will be marked as ‘Collection Only’. If you are bidding from further afield and win your lot, we will cover UK postage and packing but would ask that any overseas winners make their own arrangements for shipping/collection. Please note all measurements and descriptions are as accurate as possible.
As we would love to meet the successful bidders, we are hoping that most lots will be collected from the Gallery. Once paid for (by card over the phone), we can store items until convenient for you to collect by prior arrangement.
The Green Tree
Gallery is a contemporary art and crafts gallery founded in 2008 on the edge of
Haywards Heath in Sussex. Based in a barn in the beautiful surroundings of

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.
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.
