With all the show cancellations from Covid the last two years, raising funds for the National Fish Decoy Association has been difficult, to say the least. Fortunately the NFDA had a supply of fish decoys from the National Contest where they sponsor a class called - eBay. This is a class where they can win ribbons and certificates, but their entry gets donated to the NFDA. In fact they can enter up to 3 times, as long as each decoy is a different species.
Those decoys plus some fresh donated decoys go up weekly on eBay , with the net funds going to the NFDA. The seller is E.l.Pout, or just search fish decoy NFDA. The auctions always run from 7 pm central time , starting every Sat. night, for 7 days.
This has saved the NFDA ! Many collectors are stepping forward with purchase prices that reflect their concern for us. Most of the auctions are running from 500 to 950 views, so people are paying attention.
