What’s on at Ferne
After our last Lucky Ducks auction went so swimmingly, we’re back this year for another round of quack-tastic mystery prizes!
We’re offering you the chance to bid on one or more of our 12 unique Rubba Ducks, kindly provided by JustDucks UK.
Each is hiding a mystery prize, and the most egg-citing part is…you won’t know which prize is under which duck.
