The 5th Auction Results

We held an eBay auction and it ended on 18th May.
This time, we had put 2 puzzles that had subtle imperfections.
The sales results are as follows:

Quarted Box:  AUD355.00
Alcyone:           AUD44.44


The total amount was AUD399.44. As we had promised, we donated half of the sales (AUD200.00 )to AWLQ (Animal Welfare League Queensland) to support dogs and cats today. Here is the receipt of the donation.



We thought that there are cats in the facility of the AWLQ Beenleigh Rehoming Centre, but there are no cats. It's nice that there are not many cats that are waiting for a foster family, but other AWLQ facilities have lots of cats, dogs, birds and farm animals. We hope our donation will be helpful for them.
These are pictures of fluffy friends that welcomed us today.


We are going to hold the same type of auction when we get puzzles with subtle flaws. I think this is a good chance to get a puzzle at a low price.

Every time we start an auction, we will send a newsletter. If you are interested in auctions or our new puzzle information, please join the Pluredro newsletter!

We have put two puzzles up for auction on eBay!


We started selling Alcyon, Merope and Quartet Box last Monday, but there are two puzzles that we hesitate to sell as products left. Both puzzles are new and fully operational to play with.



As we have always done, we are going to donate half of the sales of this auction to the Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ).

Both puzzles start from $1.00 AUD!
We are looking forward to you joining our auction!



Alcyon


This is a second grade Alcyon which has obvious chipout on the pieces.






Quartet Box


The gears of Quartet Box is made with eight kinds of timber, but there is one left that cannot be completed with eight colours.

3 New Puzzles on Sale!

We have started selling our three new puzzles!



One of the three is a trick opening puzzle box and we named it Quartet Box. You will be able to know why we named it "Quartet" if you play with it.
The other two puzzles are 6-piece interlocking burr puzzles, but they are non-orthogonal. The shape of these two look like a shining star, so we took names from the stars in the Pleiades star clusters, Alcyon and Merope.
Please take a look at each puzzle's details on our online shop pages.

While making three puzzles, some puzzles that we hesitate to sell as products remain.
The four gears of the production version of Quartet Box is made with eight kinds of timber, but there is one left that cannot be completed with eight colours.
There is also a second grade Alcyon which has obvious chipout on the pieces. Both of them can be played with no problem.

After a while, we are going to put them on eBay auction. As we have always done, we are going to donate half of the sales of this auction to the Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWLQ). According to AWLQ, they maintained zero euthanasia by donation last year. We hope our little donation will be a help for them.

We will let you know about the auction on this blog and by our newsletter. If you have not registered for our newsletter, please take a look at the bottom left of our shop website.
