Since we are going to have a second round of auctions later this winter, the goal for this round will be for things that can be delivered by February 14, although if you want to offer something with a later delivery date, please indicate that in the Additional Info section. Also, if you are offering more than one item, or would like to indicate a "reserve" of up to $50, please indicate so in the Additional Info section.

This auction will close on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at approximately noon Eastern Standard Time.

Bidding Rules

Bid by commenting to the Offering post.

I am offering: A Estonian knitting lacemaking book "Pitsilised Koekirjad" by Leili Lehismets (later known as Reimann)

Additional Info: The Book is a hard cover, first edition published in 1978 by publisher Valgus. Has 168 pages, 434 Estonian lace knitting patterns. IS IN ESTONIAN!

The book is in a relatively good condition but the spine is damaged in the upper level from both sides of the cover.

POSTAGE: Postage will be payed by the buyer 10 USD airmail worldwide shipping from Estonia. And additional 5 USD if they want the parcel to be registered.

Sorry potential bidders, currently I am a broke jobless Uni student so I can't afford to pay for postage myself.

E-mail to get additional pictures of the book if you want to see it's condition.

Starting Bid: 20 USD

Thank you from help_haiti!

We've just notified the winning bidder(s), and asked them to connect with you directly, or with us, to confirm their donation. Once they do, you can get started on your Offering, or ship it to them, or whatever suits the circumstances. Or if you prefer, you can get in touch with the winning bidder yourself, any time.

Once a winning bidder has sent you confirmation of his or her donation, we would really appreciate it if you visited the Donation Confirmation Station at http://community.livejournal.com/help_haiti/10005.html - it will really help with our record keeping and putting together the final tally.

If you have any questions, ask them here; if you haven't heard from the Winning Bidder by Sunday, and you've tried to contact him or her yourself, let us know there, too.

Remember, we have screened replies at help_haiti for the time being, so discussion between Offeror and Winning Bidder should move out of the comm into one of your LJs, PMs, email, etc.
