    The Ten Commandments of Entering Items Online

  1. Please put in an estimated value and minimum price – you know your item better than we do and we hate to have to guess!
  2. Capitalize all important words in the title (but not “and,” “the” or “by” for example).
  3. Spell out numbers in titles (i.e Three Gold Rings, not 3 Gold Rings).
  4. Make sure to pay attention to the category and pick the best one for your item or event.
  5. Make sure to check the box (Winner takes it home?) if your item is a “thing.”
  6. All descriptions should end with a period or exclamation points, even if the description is not a sentence.
  7. If your item is an event with more than 4 guests, you should pick a time.
  8. Avoid putting your dinner or event as TBA (to be arranged at a later date).
  9. Putting in a picture of your item is very, very helpful.
  10. Put your items in early – the deadline is October 1 for the $25 early-bird drawing, or October 20 by midnight for the catalog.
