Welcome to the 2018 Belladonna* auction!
Note: We’ve discovered that PayPal’s “Buy It Now” button is temperamental. In order to “buy it now” please use the regular bidding button, but bid $1 above the “buy it now” price. That seems to do the trick. However, if you’re having any trouble with bidding on an item, please don’t hesitate to send a note to us at belladonna series [at] gmail.com and we can facilitate on the backend. Thanks for supporting Belladonna* Collaborative!
Note about shipping: Free shipping is included on some, but not all, items. If you have questions about shipping costs, please query us before bidding. Most items can also be picked up in person from our studio in Crown Heights.
