Rain Taxi Benefit Auction 2022

A few of the items up for bidding this year!

Rain Taxi’s annual Benefit Auction is taking place from December 11 through December 18!

Why simply buy your holiday book gifts when you could win them?

Up for grabs are a wide variety of books, chapbooks, and broadsides — many signed, some very rare! — and some other fun surprises. We’re selling out-of-print poetry, cool first editions, signed books, children’s treasures, vintage literary gems, Rain Taxi exclusives, and some terrific 2022 items, all at low starting bids.

When you bid on any item from our Benefit Auction, you are supporting our nonprofit organization and its programs, but you also obtain a wonderful literary treasure to delight yourself or someone you love. (We don’t do much online selling the rest of the year, so especially if you’re not local to the Twin Cities, now’s your chance to snag an item from the Rain Taxi vault!)

The auction begins Sunday, December 11, at 8 pm Central and concludes the evening of Sunday, December 18, at 8 pm Central.

On Sunday night, this page will go live and you can begin bidding:

Thank you for taking a look and for supporting Rain Taxi!
