So, we are about seven hours into the RA Birthday Auctions, and I am already a wreck…
The first response to the auctions has been… GREAT! Unbelievable, really. I have been blown away by your response! No sooner had the auctions been posted, and the bids started coming in. Unfortunately I made a couple of (minor) mistakes in the listings – all that clicking and copying and pasting took its toll, so here are a few notes on revised info:
- Item 2 Sparkhouse DVD: The DVD is actually UNUSED, brandnew and still in its shrink wrap!
- Item 17 Tolkien Fan Set: This item ships WORLDWIDE. I apparently forgot to click international shipping.
So, just to reiterate: All items ship worldwide.
Before I head in for the night, here is a little update with a few stats.
- First of all – the custom RAPS, which is auctioning via e-mail, is now at 65 Euro! Thank you!
- We have also already received a donation via the Paypal donation button to the tune of 100 Euro! Amazing!
- Currently at the highest bid: The Guy of Gisborne 2-in-1 shrine at 155.50 Euro. Yay!
- A bidding war seems to be erupting over the NIFF magazine – 35 bids have been registered so far. Great stuff!
- The highest number of views have been registered for the Macbeth theatre programme: Viewed 128 times so far. Hooray!
These are just a few stats – but the important number is: Adding up all current bids, including the custom RAPS, and the donation, we currently have a total of 874.81 Euro!!!!!!!! That converts into 1000.82 USD$!!!!!!!!!! Which means that we have already reached a major milestone in one currency! (British pounds equivalent: 784.99 £.)
I have been feeling a bit like Richard Armitage here. My phone has been pinging with every bid that was made, and it has been music to my ears.
