You got more ammo, @mimo, or should I call it?
post #437 of 635

Well, technically time is up.  But if we're being charitable I can go to $330.

This being a charity auction, I'm inclined to be charitable. I'll let this bidding war play itself out until one of you says uncle. @romafan, what say you?

It's been 20 minutes and haven't heard from romafan, so I'm going to go ahead and call it for your winner, by TKO in the 12th round, @mimo!!

Very well done! I'm glad this auction had a happy ending. Congratulations, romafan, on your victory, and thank you, mimo, for your gracious concession. Thanks also to Shaya and Exquisite Trimmings for their generosity.

This auction turned out to be a huge success, with $350 raised from the auction, and $50 generously donated by Stitchy on top of the winning bid.

Thanks to all participants.

Next up is a luxurious package from @kirbya and the Hanger Project. Many of you know them as providers of some of the finest hangers in the world, but this project is now much more than that, which this auction highlights.

The first item is a gorgeous Cruciani Sofino cashmere knit polo (retail $945). “ Sofino” is a combed cashmere. It’s strength is that it is a very long ply; this gives us the possibility to produce a very light weight 100% cashmere sweater ( 33 gg) which feels and looks super luxurious. The cashmere used to spin this yarn is some of the longest available in the world. Available in black and navy, and every size but 50, which Kirby told me he couldn't resist keeping for himself.







The second item is a shoeshine starter kit from Saphir, retail $195, which includes all the products you'll need to keep your shoes in top condition. Important note: due to restocking right now, this will not ship until Jan 1.

This package comes to $1140 in retail value, but we'll start the bidding off at less than half of that, $550, from which point things are sure to escalate.

We'll keep this auction open for 24 hours, so until 5PM ET tomorrow, unless of course there is a bidding war such as today's, in which case we'll keep it open until everyone is satisfied.

Happy bidding, everyone.
