    Alright. @Best Budz wins it at $700. Nice job people. If you could email me at [email protected], I'll give you further instructions.

    That brings our tally up to $1125. That's awesome, and we haven't even hit December yet. Next auction, a leather backpack from @Epaulet , coming soon.

    Fok, is there a list of items that'll be auctioned off? I recall seeing that last year but maybe it was just at the end.

    Auction 2: Epaulet Leather backpack
    Ends Tuesday, Dec 1, 2015. 3 p.m. PST​

    Let's start the bidding... now. The following auction will be a 24 hour auction and will end at 3 pm PST.

    The @Epaulet Leather Backpack is designed to be the most well-crafted and versatile bag that you have ever owned. It's crafted in gorgeous full-grain cowhide and made from start to finish in our workshop in Portugal. The interior is lined in suede and had a padded compartment for a 13" laptop. The adjustable rear straps and top carry handle allow you to fully customize the bag's fit and wear. Its minimal design and luxurious leather exterior compliments both dressed up and casual looks.
    The bag will ship approximatelly 12/15

    Retail: $450

    Let's start the bidding at $200. The minimum increment on a bid will be $20. Please announce bids on this thread. If you wish to be anonymous, you may PM me, and I will proxy the bid for you.

    Important note: The bidding will not end if there has been a bid in the last 10 minutes, regardless of time. So, for example, if there is a bid at 2:59 Monday morning, the bidding will go on until 3:09, and if there is a bid before or at that time, the bidding will continue. Essentially, sniping is not going to be effective. It's for charity, y'all.

    Here are some pictures to make you all weep and bid generously and often:
