Tibet Bazaar

Read more ...


We are delighted to bring you a very special Tibet Bazaar, with nearly 50 items kindly donated by one of our longstanding supporters. We are honoured and touched that they thought of us, and also by their huge commitment to the Tibetan community in Bakhang, high in the Himalaya above Kathmandu in Nepal. Proceeds from this Bazaar will help provide two Tibetan teachers in the primary schools in Bakhang and nearby Tsagam, communities your support has helped rebuild following the devastating 2015 earthquakes. 

 

This eclectic collection has been built through years of travelling widely and staying in Tibetan areas in Tibet, India and Nepal. Our supporter taught English to young Tibetans in their schools, an activity that occupied many months over various years. They developed many friendships and stayed in private homes, monasteries and commercial Tibetan enterprises.

 

From a rare set of vintage Tibetan travelling scales and a padlock, to thangkas, trinkets and hats, there are nearly 50 pieces for you to bid on. Each item sold will make a real difference for the Tibetan community in Bakhang. 


The auction is open from Wednesday 6 July, the Dalai Lama’s 87th birthday, and closes at 9pm on Thursday 21 July. 

 

We hope you enjoy browsing and bidding this amazing and varied collection, and help raise funds for our supporter’s beloved Bakhang School. Please do get in touch if you have questions about any of our items through the "Contact administrator" link below.


UK POSTAGE: Items will be sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery at £8.95 to ensure each one arrives with the winner safely and is covered by insurance. If you win more than one item, it may be possible to combine them into one package and in that case we would refund you for the extra postage cost.


INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE: Winners should pay for their items plus the £8.95 postage and may then be asked to make a small donation to cover the extra cost of international postage, depending on the item's value and the country in question.

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.
