Thanks, Armitage Army, I can always rely on you. Didn’t I say last night I was looking forward to getting up this morning? Indeed, after the last count shortly after midnight, the auctions got moving overnight. When I checked the auctions again this morning, bids had come in, pushing us over the first milestone: We have crossed the 500 Euro mark!!!
Here is an overview where the bids stand at the moment (ETA: This was this morning at time of posting. See more comment on that at the bottom of the post):
However, that is not all! The first bid has come in for the Custom RAPS. The current bid is 40 Euro. Instructions on how to bid on the tailor-made pocket shrine are HERE.
That brings us to a Monday morning total of 547.50 Euro! We are now actually nearing a semi-milestone!
ETA at 11am: What I wrote above was already out-of-date by the time I posted this post. During the 30 minutes it took me to write, a number of bids came in, pushing us not only past the 550 € semi-milestone, but adding a massive 100 € in bid value onto the total. I blame my notification settings on my iPhone for missing the developments – I had not yet re-enabled notifications after switching them off for the night. (I am currently keeping my phone switched on and near-by at all times because a good friend of mine is expecting her second child any minute now, and I am on stand-by to take child #1, my 7 yo god-daughter, over in case baby #2 kicks off labour in the middle of the night.) Here’s the top-scorer in direct comparison:
With the latest eBay auction total (11:05am) at 671 Euro plus the e-mail bid for the custom RAPS at 40 Euro, we have now breached the magic 700 – which had been my initial (unvoiced) goal. So the new question is,
Can we take the auction total across the next semi-milestone to 750 Euro???
