Click here to watch 9&10 coverage of the 2020 Festival of Trees.

Instructions for Bidding:


  • All items will be displayed behind the Benzie Historical Museum (see map below).  Appropriate distancing measures with mask are required.
  • The auction begins at 4 pm on Friday, November 27, 2020 and ends at 3 pm on Sunday, November 29, 2020.
  • Each auction item will have an associated item number.  You will be able to find items in the virtual auction by using the item numbers.  Write down the item numbers for decorations that you’d like to bid on.
  • Each item has been assigned to one of 6 categories.  The categories are live trees, artificial trees, live wreaths, artificial wreaths, centerpieces, and wall hangings.  The six buttons above will take you directly to items in the corresponding category.


  • Once you find an item you want to bid on, click or tap the picture of the item and you will be taken to the bidding page.  
  • Since this is an on-line auction, you will need to identify yourself to place a bid.  When you try to place a bid, you will be asked to “register”.  Create an account with your email address and a password.   Once you have created your account, you will be required to re-enter your bid.  This is confusing and we apologize.  It is the way the software works.
  • After your successful bid, you will get an email with the details.
  • If someone else outbids you, you will get an automatic email telling you that you have been outbid.


  • When the auction ends and you have successfully won an item, you will get an automatic email saying that you have won.  Please bring cash, check, or credit card to the Historical Society between 4-6 Sunday or 10-1 Monday to pay and pick up your item.
  • If you have any problems or questions, please call 231-510-1721 or email info@benziehabitat.org for help.
  • Good Luck!!!
