Bidder decks out house

Chris Harris decked out his house last year with items from _The West Australian's _ Click2Bid auction.

The Roleystone resident successfully bid on more than 20 items from the online auction, which is in its sixth year.

Among his prized pieces were a display cabinet, bird bath and numerous garden ornaments.

He also bought vouchers to cake shops and restaurants for him and his family.

Mr Harris said he was pleased to be part of the auction, which raised money for Telethon.

"I'm sure I saved money, plus it goes towards a good thing," he said.

"I have been doing it for a few years, but last year I bought more than I ever have."

Mr Harris said the products offered on the vouchers he bid for would help him renovate his home.

"We have lived here for a while but have decided to do things up, like our bathroom and granny flat," he said.

"We are still working on it but I think the items I got will add to it."

Mr Harris said he would recommend the online auction to his friends and would definitely log on again this year. "It's a lot of fun and it does a good favour for the (Telethon) children," he said.

This year's auction runs from Friday to August 17. To register, visit
