Bid on a Silent Online Auction to Support Spoke the Hub

In the market for some art, furniture or other housewares? Here’s a chance to find something unique and support two great causes. Local community arts organization Spoke the Hub has coordinated a silent auction for the estate of Edith Houser, a Sheepshead Bay resident described as “sharp, witty and stylish,” who passed away in September. They aim to find a good home for the contents of her apartment while raising money for Edith’s two loves: art and animals.

You can bid on about 200 pieces online, including some drawings, paintings and sculptures by Edith’s late husband James. A winning bid is a tax-deductible donation that will go to the North Shore Animal League and Spoke the Hub Dancing.

Bidding ends on Sunday, October 21 – the same day of an Open House and Closing Party from 2-7pm at Edith’s Sheepshead Bay apartment, where people can see the items in person (and still have time to bid). Purchased items can be retrieved at the Open House, or delivery within Brooklyn can be arranged before October 30 for an additional fee.
