    I'd leave the auctions running if it wasn't for the damn 1 day shipping policy for top rated sellers. My main worry right now is the 5 buyers who haven't yet paid. If they don't pay up by noon Friday they are SOL til the 14th.

    BTW. Let mine run for our honeymoon, and the trip was paid for by the time we returned. Gotta love that!

    Seriously though...you may not be aware that Goodwill has not been a licensed charitable organization for many years. They are non-profit. The chairty ends with the kind donations they receive. From that point forward, think of GW as a giant garage sale. If you wish to support a truly licensed Charitable organization, Salvation Army is one of the last ones standing in North America.

    Det kan säkert vara Chester Barrie som har gjort den, det skulle verkligen inte förvåna mig. Man märkte direkt att det var ett kvalitetsplagg. Jag var först lite osäker på om jag skulle köpa den eller inte, då den var lite för stor för mig, men den var alldeles för härlig för att låta hänga kvar.

    And for all you non-Swedes out there; It could be Chester Barrie who have made it, it wouldn't surprise. I immediately noticed that it was a piece of great quality. At first, I was a little unsure of wether I should buy it or not, it was a tad too big on me, but it was too good to just let it hang there.

    Could anybody confirm if it's made by Chester Barrie?

    Och färgen är helt underbar.

    Dude, that tie is sweet. Even if it's a little wide, you could totally slim it down and rock that shiz with a vengeance. :slayer:

    LOL more power to ya!

    I briefly considered keeping it myself for that purpose... but I don't usually wear ties that require QUITE that much panache to pull off. :)
