2007 DF Silent Auction!!!

Bidding Now Closed!!! Winners to be notified within 48 hours

As great as the DF's continued growth and activity are, this also means that we are dealing with ever greater site traffic as well. Without a doubt this is GREAT! But this also means that our hosting expenses have continued to go up as well, and outside programming help is needed for time to time. As such, the DF occasionally dose some fund raising by various means such as donations and our silent auction. Proceeds from the DF Silent Auction go to upgrading our server, paying our monthly hosting charges, software upgrades, and outside programming help as these are needed.


Also please note that additional donations of auction items are always welcome too! :D

2007 DF Silent Auction Donated Item List (Cont.)

35. One-year subscription [#1] to Dance Beat (print or internet subscription, winner's choice, US version) [$36]

36. One-year subscription [#2] to Dance Beat (print or internet subscription, winner's choice, US version) [$27]

37. Set of three hand-painted Christmas bulbs:
These are the average-sized bulbs that you see sold in boxes of six. I can do almost any design within reason, but I caution (especially as I'm using acrylic on a curved surface) I'm not great on facial details. Logos and non-humans are much easier, or stylized humans. I have done trademarked characters in the past, but only for chrarity auctions. Highest prices ever paid...well, a set of six Star Wars bulbs went for ca. $220, an individual one-of-a-kind SW bulb went five years later to the same bidder for $86 (Steve's kinda into collecting SW stuff.) I've done wildlife bulbs for my parents, I've done some Peanuts (tm) stuff for personal use. Basically if I have a picture to work from, I'm good. I'll see if I can find some uploaded examples after work/lesson.
38. $50 gift card to Elephant Bar Restaurant [$35]

39. L'Oreal Sublime Bronze in Light/Medium Lotion plus face tanning towelettes.

hmmm....My donation is not listed....why is this the case?

So, again...I'm offering a CD, "Musical Conquest" by Sonera Poncena. I will mail it via media mail at my cost to whomever wins the CD.

I would like to donate a set of custom made, Swarovski crystal competition bracelets. When I sell a set on eBay, they sell from anything ranging from $80 to $100.00.

They are soft and won't snag your costuming (or your partner) and if you choose to wear them with a smooth/standard gown, floats are easily attached.

May I add a 'bonus' to the auction? State that if bidding exceeds a certain amount (don't know if I or df mods should set it) then the bracelets can be made to match a specific gown for the winning bidder?

Below is an example of what a normal pair of Crystal, non-AB cuffs look like:

i am donating two astrological readings. each is worth approx. $200 and will include the following:
  • various colored charts (natal, transit, and progressed)
  • a customized hand-written analysis of the charts... basically, whatever i can write within an hour & a half, on whatever components of the chart appear most important.
  • and a number of computer-generated reports forecasting general trends for the individual over the following year.
  • everything will be printed out, arranged in a nice little folder, and mailed to you.
to take best advantage of such a reading, you do need to know the date, time, and place of your birth. but if you don't know the time, there's still plenty of information that can be included in a reading of this nature!

also note: this makes an excellent gift for someone special... :D

Thanks Tanya.

FYI, the first necklace photo isn't displaying, so if you could just send that my way (via email) I'll correct it.
