Ok, so I imagine most of you have seen the announcement for this auction by now (if you haven't, you can read it here: Announcement: AGF Benefit Auction. That thread explains who this benefit is for and why. This thread is where I'll explain how this is all going to work, and where all the action is going to go down! All items up for auction will be posted here, at a staggered rate (so I don't have to deal with everything all at once!). Bids on most items may be placed via PM to me; Mossman. I have given donors the option to auction their items on ebay for more exposure. In which case, there will be a link to their ebay auction where you may place your bid. For all other items you may place your bids with me. Each item will be numbered. When placing bids, please use the item number as the title, so I know what you're bidding on, and place your bid amount in the message. I will update the highest bids on each item as bids come in. I'm going to have my hands pretty full, so I cannot contact everybody individually when/if they've been outbid. So please check this thread for updates. Each item will be open for bidding for a period of two weeks (14 days) from the date it was posted. Bidding will close at midnight PDT on the 14th day. The closing date for each item will be included in the posting. Items will have a reasonable reserve. If the reserve on an item is not met, the highest bidder will be offered the item at the reserve price. Shipping will be actual shipping cost, to be calculated once the winning bidder is determined. Sorry, we live all over the place... there's just no way to estimate shipping in advance. But we've all bought gear online before... We know how much stuff costs to ship. Payment for items will be made directly to Sabas' Paypal email. If you send payment as a gift, no fees will be taken out. Payment for shipping will be similarly sent to the donor's Paypal. Sorry for the extra step... It's just the least complicated way of doing it. No items will ship until payment is confirmed. * We're still gratefully accepting items for the auction, so if you have anything you'd like to donate, it's never too late. Just send me a PM, and I'll get it posted for you. ** For those of you who would like to make a cash donation, please contact me via PM and I will provide you with Sabas' Paypal email address. I thank you, and Sabas thanks you all for your support! I know we can make this a big success and really make a difference in a brother's life! The first few items go up for bid tomorrow (Wednesday) morning! So Stay tuned!
