It’s time for the 5th annual Netroots Nation Holiday Bazaar (see a preview of some of this year's items below.) This year it will be held from Thursday, December 5th through Tuesday, December 9th. Hey all you talented Kossacks, are you interested in supporting Netroots Nation by donating an item? Look below the orange squiggly line for more details and a sneak preview of a few items that already are in this year's auction.

But first of all, here are some items from past year’s auction. We hope they’ll inspire you to come up with your own items. They include:
•    Striking images from Joshua Tree N.P and Monument Valley
•    Tin of Brownies and Hot Chocolate
•    Angel Fantasy Pendant with Spiral Rope Chain
•    Elijah Craig Aged 18 Year Single Barren Kentucky Bourbon Balls
•    Aunt Ruby’s BBQ – Shipped to You!
•    Hand-knitted Afghan by Nolan’s Mom
•    Hand Quilted Polar Bear Pillow

See, there are endless possibilities! And take a look below at just a few of this year's donations. If you've got an idea out there of something you would like to see in the Holiday Bazaar, post it in a comment below.  Btw, I will be co-chairing this fundraiser again with Joan McCarter.

So start thinking of ideas and feel free to donate online or contact the Netroots Nation Development Director Karen Kolber (karen at netroots nation dot org) and let her know what you would like to donate.

Thanks so much everyone and remember all proceeds benefit Netroots Nation.

P. S. Don’t forget to register for NN 2014, this year in the Motor City - Detroit, Michigan! We'll be in the newly renovated Cobo Center, located along the waterfront in an area that's the hub of much of the renovation taking place in the city. And there's a lot of that happening! While the auto industry continues its resurgence, the city is in the midst of a reinvention, attracting a creative class of newcomers and engaging longtime residents in solutions for growth and recovery.

SOME OF THIS YEAR'S ITEMS:

"Beyond the White House" signed by President Jimmy Carter
Official Cheers & Jeers Cookies---Union-made* in Maine!
Tie Dye Shirt
Reindeer Hat!
Bacon Toffee - Made with a pound of bacon and a pound of butter!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
