If you would like to offer something that you don't think is covered by any of the Offering posts below, feel free to post your offer as a comment to this post.

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.

Bids must be raised by at least a dollar per bid

Please do not delete comment containing a bid - if you have an issue, please comment to your bid explaining what happened, or contact a Comm mod.

How to Offer
Please list the type of item and fandom (if relevant) in the Subject to your post.

Paste the following into the Comment window and fill in the non-optional spaces.

ETA on Saturday morning If the item will be sent in a package to the winner, please indicate whether the winner will pay shipping, or if you will, or if you'll work it out between the two of you. If there are limitations on where it can be sent, please indicate this too. Additional Info is probably the best place but a comment to your original post is fine too.

You can see things I've created at: ----

I am offering: A box. Mailed to you. Full of various things from Wisconsin: postcards, toy cows, things related to various sporting teams, universities, etc. Things put into the box will mostly be a surprise, but if someone wants certain things, I can definitely try to include them!

Fandoms (if appropriate): N/A

Additional Info (optional): I'm not sure how food would be mailed, if something is requested, I can look into including some, or seeing if a company will mail directly to you.

Starting Bid: $10. (The box will get significantly better as the bids are raised however.)

Starting it with $10!

I am offering: a 33 card tarot reading which can be done over email or over chat (or, if in the UK, over the phone) - it's an in-depth spread covering physical, mental, emotional and spiritual matters.

Fandoms (if appropriate): n/a

Additional Info (optional): This is a spread I designed with a friend; it takes at least a couple of hours to do and can be a bit hard to hear; I'm willing to do any number of other spreads including direct question spreads and those focused on particular issues if you prefer, this one is just quite in-depth and has had fantastic results in use so far. If you want more info about the spread, feel free to email me before bidding.

Starting Bid: $10

You can see things I've created at: photo of a shawl I knit recently (don't have any photos to hand of socks/gloves I've knit, can attempt to provide if it'll make a difference in the bid).

I am offering: Pair of hand-knitted socks or gloves (bidder's choice). Happy to use your choice of yarn if it's UK-available & you add the cost onto the bid, otherwise it'll be something from my stash.

Additional Info (optional): I can't guarantee delivery by Feb 14th given an auction closing date of Jan 20th & international post issues, but will do my best :)

Starting Bid: $40
