Any Other Players?

Well this one looks like a Dud.

If you want the goods Fletcher just PM your Address to me and it will be on the way.

Guess I need to come up with something better in the Future.


Do the Donation thing .

If your unable to do that for some reason tell me and I will send the good and we will work it out.

Maybe another time I will put up some Toilet Floats and see I can get some money from the Yammi Folks  I guess!

Never had a toothAche like I have today.

Sorry Guys!    Any of you good with a chessel and Hammer?

Got your PM.  Goods will be on the way in a day or so.  Woke up with a toothAche from Hell about 2am.   Need to deal with that and then I will bag and tag your goodies.

I think your publicity that was at fault here mate. I did see the auction but I did not remember about it. Advertising is the key to a successful business  Wink

The problem is simple. You don't have enough potential buyers to have an auction. An auction requires lots of goods and lots of buyers. No matter what you put forward here, the odds are against there being more than one or two interested in buying and then, most are very polite here. When a bid is mentioned, who would bid against another?

So, you need relative anonymity and lots of potential buyers. We don't have either here. Next time, grab your scale and weigh up some Apache Tears and set a price on 12 bags for each or all. You'll sell them.

I believe you have a good point golddigger, as I would have donated a set price for the goodies as well. The auction idea was just for fun since the money was to go to support the site. Anyway I've not been here long but really do enjoy the site.

Why not use eBay and sell some bags with the money going to the site? Use Christian's PayPal account to accept payment.
