Prudent Baby’s First Auction hosted by Tophatter

Yes, you heard right, we are having our first Prudent Baby auction hosted by the online auction company, Tophatter, and we want you to be a part of it!

Tophatter is a wonderfully addictive auction site full of everything a craft-loving, vintage-sporting, stylish lady could ever want. Jacinda has been caught in the vortex of Tophatter bliss and wrote all about her lovely purchases on her Do You Tophatter? Babble post. The coolest part of being at a Tophatter auction is that the entire auction is live and virtual. Each person gets a nice little avatar like you see above. We get to chat with each other and watch each item go up for bid. Now do you see why we love it? It’s like we get to take Prudent Baby to the next level and all meet up for an awesome party (minus the cocktails) and then we get to go shopping together for pretty things. Which brings me to my next point…

What are we auctioning off exactly? Small children and circus animals. Just kidding! Crafting supplies galore. Here are a few of the items up for auction.

A Cottage by the Sea will be auctioning off French Seam Binding in 10 different colors. You can also get your hands on her jewelry and beautiful hang tags at her Etsy store.

Hazari Creations is auctioning off 100 Sheer Organza bags in assorted colors. Take a peek at the jewelry she also sells here.

Elizabeth from Ribbon and More will take care of all your zipper needs with her 10 colorful zippers. Her pretty handmade hairbows can be found in her Bowtique.

Bethany from Destiny Phoebe is poppin’ with buttons, 200 buttons to be exact.

Now for the juicy details…

When: Wednesday, April 18th at 7pm PST
Where: Prudent Baby’s First Auction on Tophatter
Why: Because who doesn’t want to score some new craft supplies?
How: Just click the Prudent Baby’s First Auction on Tophatter link, RSVP and register to join the auction.

Guess what? We have a few spaces left for sellers.

If you are interested in selling in our auction we are looking for supply/craft/sewing items like fabric, buttons, ribbon, bakers twine, feathers, leather, zippers and thread, washi tape, scrapbooking/paper arts like stamps, decorative paper and tags.

Items should retail about $20-$25. Please send Jacinda (Jacinda{at}PrudentBaby{dot}com) an email containing links or images of the products you would like to add. Once you have a confirmation from her she will send you a sellers link. Start uploading your items with a starting bid of $6-$8 retail (the sweet spot). By signing up for our first auction you will be saving the usual 10% commission fee. Once you have followed all the steps, sit back, relax and wait for the auction to begin.

We are so excited to have our first Prudent Baby auction and couldn’t be happier to have it hosted by the fantastic auction site, Tophatter. We’ll see you at the auction!

Hi, I’ve never heard about an online auction before, I subscribe to your post via email, and I got this post probably just when the auction saw it, sadly I only viewed it today morning and the auction was closed ๐Ÿ™ if you do plan on having an auction like this again, would it be possible to post about it earlier? it sounds like a very interesting event! ๐Ÿ™‚


I had SOOOO much fun at this auction last night! Thanks a bunch for hosting it – I picked up some great stuff! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you hold another one soon!
