    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    And that'll be the hammer down on this auction. Congrats to @mimo, and our appreciation once again to @AnGeLiCbOrIs for his generosity in contributing the items for this auction.

    Folks, we're going to take a breather for a few days as many of you will be celebrating Christmas and less focused on bidding in auctions. But we shall return on Thursday for the debut of this JP Marcellino bag, and then we'll have a very dramatic finish with some shoes from Panta on Friday.

    Thanks fellas! (What's in the bag, Boris?!)

    Sorry for the slow reply - I offered Wayward the chance to pay more for charity's sake; just got a PM declining, so finally I win one to keep! [​IMG]

    UBR, I PM'd the last time about payment arrangements - I assume you're enjoying your holiday, but let me know which you'd like me to do in due course. Also, I will never use a card wallet. Add it to another auction if that's OK with Boris, and make some more charity money out it.

    Wow how generous of you to offer $50 for a wallet that sells for over $300 haha...If Mimo is willing to donate back the wallet, I'd say lets include it in a future auction, or make it its own separate auction.

    It is a first quality wallet with two very subtle asterisks stamped into the leather because it was pulled from retail stock. I've sold them in the past of as much as $150. Retail is $250.
    If @mimo donates it to a special Christmas auction I will add a pair of cufflinks and tie (or bowtie :slayer: ) to sweeten the deal.

    Consider it donated! What a great guy you are.

    Man, you've got me thinking about the cool shantung bow tie now. But I think I'll stick with the brown raw silk just because I already wanted it!

    That's a great offer by the way; if I lived in NY...

    Alright everyone, we've got an exciting auction today on an entirely new briefcase design from @JP Marcellino. Head over to JP M's site to learn more about their process. You can read all the details on this model in this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/373554/...m-briefcase-by-the-joseph-p-marcellino-bag-co But here are some photos that give you an idea of the handsome and unique aspects of this piece: Photos of the Cai Lun style 2301: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] By request, this auction starts at $0, so don't be shy. Let's get this bid up to the hefty price tag it deserves, reward JP Marcellino's generosity with another bountiful donation to the Ronald McDonald House. This auction will stay open until tomorrow at noon ET, but will not close until there have been 10 minutes without a bid.
