Items will be accepted on site in Vancouver up to the last minute, however it would help very much to have the information about your donation as soon as possible.

Please feel free to forward this message to anyone you think would be interested in participating.

If you are planning to bring or send any items for the Auction, please send the information below to atypi@typofonderie.com.

Again, if you are unable to attend the Conference and wish to send your items, please specify this in your email so that we can make arrangements.
