Three Days Left to Bid

posted by on December 11 at 16:09 PM

Strangercrombie is rolling right along. With three days remaining, we’ve already raised a respectable $35,000 for FareStart.

Slogging privileges are currently going for $605. We know nothing about the current high bidder, but our fingers are crossed that she or he can string a coherent sentence and has something to say.

There are still quite a few undervalued packages awaiting your bid, including these:

Spend an evening at Moe Bar with 10 friends and food and drinks courtesy of your very own bartender. This would make a fabulous birthday or graduation party, no? Current high bid: $102.50

Have you seen Sgt. Rigsby and His Amazing Silhouettes? They are truly mesmerizing and lovely and silly; they would delight your mother and blow your kid’s mind. A private shadow-puppet performance is currently at $36.

Retail Therapy donated a way generous 60-second shopping spree. Have you been there? The tiny store is chock full of wearable and fabulous indie-designer clothes for men and women, Miz Mooz shoes and boots, an entire wall of lingerie, jewelry, fragrance, handbags, high-end bath and body goodies, and more. The bidding has stalled at a ridiculously low $202.50.

Still no bids for the sweater, huh?

Are there rules for the 60 second shopping spree? Because I'm gay, hardly indifferent and very indecisive. In order for that to sound reasonable, I'd have to be able to just start dragging my arm across the shelves and racks and dumping every fucking piece of clothing into my cart.

$605 for seven days? That's like $80~90 per day.

Kind of a rip off I think.

The first link, slogging privileges, points back to your internal admin site.

Same with the last link.

Replace "admin" with "www" and the first and last links work.

Can we bid extra to give Mr. Poe a better chance?

And then wrap him in duct tape, sticky side out?

(must not give away the password ... it is not death so don't use that)

maybe to you, but auctions are designed to... well, here's the wikipedia definition: an auction is a method for determining the value of a commodity that has an undetermined or variable price.

Links fixed. GAH!

@2, I have the same problem with the shopping spree. I'd either end up grabbing everything in sight or trying to look first and then ending up with one thing.

If you're going to do the shopping spree, why not go ahead of time, find all the things you want, and then in your 60 seconds grab them all?
