A separate, silent auction, featuring many quality items, will be held during the reception, at which refreshments will be served. A wide variety of jewelry, handmade journal books, historic block print reproductions, a birdbath, vintage canisters, and more will be offered at the silent auction, which will be held a second time on February 18 from 9 a.m. to noon.
