Everyone who bids (and everyone who made a donation to the auction) will have their subscription to Crown Jewels extended by one month for free… whether or not they win anything. Since Crown Jewels will likely have a new owner starting in 2019, we cannot commit to additional participation prizes this year.

Please take a look at the auction and consider bidding… both to help the magazine… and to help yourself!

Thank you for your support.
