Instagram Auctions

What are instagram auctions?

We host yarn auctions on Instagram every Thursday and Friday! At 8 pm EST, the yarn and other notions go live on Instagram!  Follow @wool_workshop_  on Instagram to see what we offer!

How do i participate?

Register your Instagram username with Soldsie, then watch @wool_workshop_ on Instagram on Thursdays and Fridays at 8 pm EST. To buy something, comment "Sold" with the quantity you want to purchase (for example, to purchase three skeins of yarn, comment "Sold 3"). You'll receive an email from Soldsie with either confirmation of your winning bid or an option to join the wait list. All sales are final and orders are shipped on Monday. If you're local and picking up in store, please drop by any time after the following Monday.


Orders from Thursday and Friday are shipped via USPS on Monday (or Tuesday for federal holidays). Shipping is $8 domestic (includes HI, AK, and Puerto Rico) and $20 international (includes Canada) Order anything on Thursday and Friday and only pay one shipping fee. Once you win your first item and pay for shipping, choose "In-Store Checkout" for any subsequent orders you place that week. 

I didn’t get an invoice. What happened?

First, please make sure that you’ve registered

Occasionally, Instagram reads a bid as spam and deletes it. Sadly, this is a problem on Instagram’s side and we have no control over it.

Often, it’s simply because the item sold out too quickly or your bid was for more than the quantity left in stock (Soldsie automatically skips over these, so if you really want something and the quantity isn’t crucial it’s sometimes better to bid one at a time. For example, if you want three but would take fewer you could comment “SOLD 1” three times. 

Regardless, if you missed out on something send us an email at

 Let us know what the item was and we’ll check the shop to see whether we have any extra in stock.
