I guess I'm out of touch with what I thought Fair Market Value was on this. So now the consumer gets to decide.

1 Sealed Jade NO circa 2004 up on the chopping block.

Bidding starts at $1.00 and has no reserve.

Flat rate of $10 will be charged for shipping to the continental US. I will do a Face to Face transaction for the few locals in my area (you know who you are).

Bidding ends Friday at 4pm PST, highest bid posted before that time takes it. I will be referencing the timestamp on this forum to save anyone confusion. I will pm the winner on 4pm friday and can ship same day.

Please bid in whole dollar amounts only.

I take paypal+3.5% or MO

IMPORTANT!!! ALL bids MUST be posted in this thread. If you PM or email me with your bid, it will not be counted.

Thanks!

Gettin' a little rich for my blood. I'm closing on a rat-infested hellhole in just over a week.

You never heard of a home equity line of credit?

Yep, and I'll be using it to lift the rat-infested hellhole and put a new foundation under it, and do a gut remodel of the interior.

Um . . . $57.96.

Ya know, you could have had it for $150 just yesterday, before Conju decided to auction it. blink.gif

My Quote on shipping to australia is about $90 including insurance. I can ship it there, but you may be better off buying from LDF (if you can).

I'll let you decide what to do.
Steve
So does that mean Ricki's bid is actually $80 (+$90 shipping) and speedle is the current high bidder at $101.01 (+$10 shipping), ignoring for the moment the bids in zlotkes or whatever?

traineraz
I'd like to bid 175 latkes.
Absomphe
Oy vey, that's small potatoes.
absinthist
Ya can pay in potatoes? Thass a big progress! Can I pay with some? How many kilos per a litre?
Absomphe
Potatoes, maybe, butt none of that tasteless vodka you're so damned fond of. harhar.gif
Ricki
$200 including postage is as high as i will go.
Absomphe
Even though Barnum never actually said it… harhar.gif
speedle
So Ricki, are you confirming that your actual bid is $110.00 plus the $90 for shipping, or have you raised the bid to $200 plus the shipping to oz?

edit: Oh duh! Never mind. blink.gif

So I guess that means the bid stands at 110 bucks.
Ricki
yeah just $110 plus massive postage to Aussie land.
Conju
Auction is closed. I will be contacting Ricki soon.
G&C
Is that not about what you paid for it?
Absomphe
He'd never kick ass in the antiques biz, but I still like the lad.
G&C
At least he recovered his investment.
speedle
I'm glad to see it ended well. My wife woulda killed me.
Ricki
Excellent. I haven't tried the NO yet so I am looking forward to this.
