All About an Auction

Up for grabs—a quality leather and canvas duffle.

Once in a while you come across a product that you immediately fall in love with. The colors, the texture, the fabrics, the stitching—the stitching! It all simply adds up to something greater than the sum of the parts. That product for us right now? This classic canvas and leather duffel bag from W Durable Goods. In fact, we love it so much, we want to share it with one of you via our first ever Instagram auction. How’s it going to work you might ask? Read on, dear friends. The details and rules are as follows:

Where and when does this go down?
The action gets started at 12pm MST on Friday, February 22 on our Instagram feed @architects_wife. Simply jump on in, give us a follow, and check in after 12 noon on Friday and before 12 noon on Saturday (when the auction ends). Click ‘comment’ on the auction post and leave your information to bid. It’s that simple!

How do I bid?
Bidding opens at 12pm MST on Friday, February 22 and closes at 12pm MST on Saturday, February 23. We’ll start the bidding out at $30, and we’ll see where it goes! To bid, click on the auction post and then just leave a comment. Place a bid at least one dollar higher than the previous bid, and tag the person who placed the previous bid. The post will be open for bidding until noon on Saturday, at which point we’ll close it down and announce the winner.

How do I pay?
You will be sent an invoice from us via PayPal within 24 hours of the end of the auction. You will then have until midnight on Sunday, February 24 to pay the invoice. If you are unable to do so, the item will go to the next highest bidder.
