Welcome to the Fifth Annual Holiday Gift Card Auction!

Monday, November 23 at noon to Sunday, November 29 at 9 p.m

Sootoday+ members receive early access to Buy Now deals on Mon, Nov 23. The auction opens to the public on Tues, Nov 24 at noon. 

Please READ THE RULES, particularly the part about credit card authorizations. In short, each time you place a bid, the system places a hold authorization for that amount on your card. When you are outbid, the hold is released. If you bid $50 on ten different items, this means $500 of your available balance will be unavailable until you're outbid. Any winning bids at the end of the auction are captured - meaning your card is charged. Buy Now items will be charged to your credit card at the time of purchase. We recommend you use a credit card, not a debit card for this auction. A released hold may take several days to reflect on your statement.

What happens if I win?
After the auction closes, it may take us a few days to process the results. If you have won an item, you will receive a confirmation email, which will contain pick up instructions. For any auction related questions, please email

With over twenty years of experience in the hospitality and business industry Shayne and Brandi Bell are taking the next step in ensuring that fellow culinary connoisseur's will have a place to come relax, and enjoy fine food and spirits.

We have been consumers of the food and beverage industry for even longer, so we appreciate the finer side of culinary experiences and amazing ambiances. We too have been on many quests for the perfect setting to an amazing atmosphere, tantalizing food and a variety of unique beverages. At Embers we embrace our clients as if they where guests in our own home.

We welcome you to visit our comfortable dining room, and experience the Sault's first authentic smokehouse!
