“We’re very excited to have the autographed shelves on eBay and hope to get some local and national interest on these items,” said Susan Carlisle, Auction Committee Chair.  “It’s all for a great cause to support Maine Discovery Museum, and if you don’t end up with one of the eBay items (or even if you do!), join us for our annual dinner auction on November 19th to bid on the gorgeous pieces our Maine artists have created.”

The autographed shelves being auctioned on eBay, as well as the hand-painted shelves for the annual dinner and live auction on November 19th, can be previewed at Maine Discovery Museum, 74 Main Street, Bangor, during regular museum hours and online at
