Donate to Hand Papermaking's Spring Auction

May 18, 2023

Hand Papermaking's Annual Papermakers' Auction on eBay is ever popular with a paper-hungry audience, yielding great finds in paper equipment, tools, paper art, paper supplies, books on paper, and just plain handmade paper. But it is a great way for paper community members to connect, learn from each other, trade paper-based goods and services, and help support their favorite paper-focused nonprofit organization!

But before we launch, we need donation to the auction. Would you consider donating any of the following types of items to Hand Papermaking this spring?

·      Papermaking tools, equipment, and supplies (like-new or gently used);
·      Paper fibers;
·      Papermaking instruction books, kits, or DVDs;
·      Paper art objects;
·      Fine handmade papers;
·      Paper-related books;
·      Fine-press books made with handmade paper;
·      Paper objects and ephemera;
·      Paper-based experiences.

Hand Papermaking’s 2023 Annual Papermakers' Auction is scheduled to take place in mid-May (final details pending), so if you have anything at all to donate please contact us as soon as you can at If you are unsure about the suitability of an item or have any other questions, reply to this email or call me at 651-447-7143.

Your generous auction donations are critical to supporting the Hand Papermaking programming and publications you all know and love. We appreciate all of your support through the years, and we look forward to hearing from you!
