    Happy to help for a great cause! Love this auction...I'll try to bid before I do the rest of my Christmas shopping in order to steal from my budget. Once I spend money on myself, I can decide who is important enough for a real gift and who is getting an air freshener from the car wash.

    Do I hear a $320 for a leather backpack? You get something that retails for $475 AND contribute to a great charity. It's all win.

    Anything for the children.

    And now the real dilemma. Can I rock that with brown boots?....

    Auction 3: La Portegna Business traveler package
    Ends Tuesday, Dec 1, 2015.5 p.m. PST​

    Let's start the bidding... now. The following auction will be a 24 hour auction and will end at 5 pm PST.

    La Portegna is a company owned and run by our good friend Jose. You may know his goods from @gdl203 's store, www.NoManWalksAlone.com. La Portegna also has a webstore: www.laportegna.com

    This auction is for one 15" leather Belgrano office bag (http://laportegna.com/collections/m...r-office-bag-belgrano-15-natural#.Vl44zHarT_w), and 1 tan Passport holder (http://laportegna.com/products/passport-holder-tan#.Vl45-3arT_x), together as a set.

    Retail: 310 GBP, or about $470, using current exchange rages.

    Let's start the bidding at $230. The minimum increment on a bid will be $25. 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:

    Incidentally, we are now up to $1450 for the Ronald McDonald House with that last auction.

    Let's see if we can't get to $2000 tomorrow.

    Bid generously.

    Cheers,

    Fok,.
