Bumping again! I was offline while moving over the weekend and was very pleased to see stuff has started to appear!
(And I see by the number of views that people are browsing already as well! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] )
Regarding Fernie's question about the closing date... I need to check with Emily about the status of some of the items she was after. Possibly we could shorten the timeframe. I just realized that the hand-made items wouldn't possibly be done in time for X-mas...
But for now, keeping posting your items. Once I find the box I packed my stirrup leathers in, I'll get those listed. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
Actually, I think we're planning to END the merchandise auction on Dec. 15. Emily and I had talked about starting it Dec. 1... but now I'm thinking maybe it would be better to go ahead and start taking bids on the stuff that's already listed.
Each item owner could decide when to end their auction... just pick a time (and post it on the thread for that item, obviously), and then lock the thread at that time.
Or maybe we'll pick staggered ending dates... Dec. 1, Dec. 8, Dec. 15, and the moderators will close the thread, to keep things impartial.
At any rate, Nikita, I would say the latest an item could be put in the auction would be Dec. 8. That would give people a week to bid.
