75+ Reasons to Check Out The SiN Silent Auction

Do you like shopping?
Do you like finding one-of-a-kind treasures?
Do you like supporting fantastic non-profit groups like Stories in the North?


Those are a few reasons you might want to stop in to Thessalon’s Northern Credit Union to see our Silent Auction but you want to know a better one?

We have nearly 80–that’s right, EIGHTY–fantastic items for you to bid on. There’s something for everyone. All ages. All tastes. All budgets.

We snapped a few photos during setup to give you a taste. Take a look!

Doesn’t that look amazing?

We’re so grateful to our many supporters which includes friends of Stories in the North as well as many local businesses. You’ll see their names on the bid sheets so be sure to tell them thanks for helping out SiN. (We did thank them and we will again! Over and over!)

As you know, we are supported by the Ontario Arts Council (a big shout out to them for our recent funding approval!) but we do need additional funds to keep operating and to host the many events we host throughout the year. (Details on our next author event are coming soon!)

We’re going to leave you with a few more photos of some of those 75+ items so take a look but read on to the end to find out what would be even better


We’ve got something for every room in your home. Wouldn’t this set look pretty sitting on a side table or a vintage tray?


We have not one–but THREE–portable gas barbecues. Perfect for camping. As an extra in the backyard. Or even for a gift. They ARE still in the box!

We have several gift certificates too. Bid on certificates for the local paper, flower arrangements, dining out and even a tarot card reading.

How about a gas can? A board game? A small child’s jacket? A waffle maker that makes TWO waffles at a time?


Pottery. Foodie gifts. Art and wall decor. Oh yeah. We’ve got it all.

And remember, we said we’d tell you something that’s even better than taking a sneak peek at these photos?
It would be GOING IN to Northern Credit Union in Thessalon and bidding on some items!

You’ve got till Friday, August 1 at 10 a.m. That’s when the auction ends. Pick your favourites, make your bids and go home with something great.
Stories in the North will thank you.
