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 don't have any pictures of my knitting, I'm afraid.

I am offering: One item made to winner's specifications out of Icelandic wool. Winner can choose between a scarf, a pair of mittens, a hat or a pair of socks in any colour I can get my hands on... and I work in a yarn store. I'll cover shipping.

Fandoms (if appropriate): I suppose this is up to what colour you'd like :)

Additional Info: Icelandic wool is hardy, superwarm and retains warmth when wet. It is, however, a bit coarse, and not suitable for sensitive skin, unless lined. (If bids go high enough, I'm totally willing to talk about lining a hat or a pair of mittens.) I'm an experienced knitter and crocheter, so while I'm thinking traditional Icelandic style items, the winning bidder can make requests and I'll do my best to accommodate them.

Starting Bid: $ 10

I bid $40 for three slightly mismatched socks (all same pattern in different colors, or all the same color in different patterns.) Red is my favorite.
(I posted this in the wrong thread yesterday. Sorry!)

You won!
Please read the Auction Closing Procedures at http://community.livejournal.com/help_haiti/10319.html

If you've already made a donation that covers the amount of your winning bid(s), confirm your donation to the item Offeror or the help_haiti mods, as explained here.

If you haven't donated yet, you can find a list of charities at http://community.livejournal.com/help_haiti/660.html?mode=reply - or you can connect with the Offeror to discuss a donation to a different charity/agency/organization. After you've made your donations(s), please confirm your donation to the item Offeror or the help_haiti mods, as explained here.

If you have any questions, ask them here.

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.

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.
