eBay for the eYeball

So, the time has come, my friends, for the pinching of the pennies. Much to my dismay, I'm now putting some of my favorite things up for auction on eBay. I'm starting with some of my beloved Thomas Dolby posters - vintage goodness from the 1980s and early 1990s. As I put up more and more goodies on eBay, I'll put my auctions in a list over on the righthand side of the blog. There will be Things Soviet (including a Soviet submarine clock), things crafty and photographic, movie posters, and random crap from my home.

I am also working with the Sasquatch on designs for t-shirts that will be available on CafePress soon (I hope.) I have drawn a devishly hot chiquita with an eyepatch and a pitchfork. I hope to add her to the banner on this blog eventually. We shall see. My techno-knowledge is fairly limited.

Anyway, the link to my first auction is here. My loss, your gain.


While 90% of each auction's winning bid will go to my eyeball fund, 10% will go to the building and maintenance of a museum for the Women Airforce Service Pilots of WWII down in Sweetwater, Texas at Avenger Field. So, if you win one of my auctions, not only will you help me with my eye treatments, but you'll also help to sustain the memory of some amazing, pioneering women.

Best of luck for the auctions! I actually don't know who Thomas Dolby is, but I am interested in those T-shirts...

Omigod!! I had this poster and totally loved it, but had to get rid of it at some point (forget the circumstances). It is on my watch list. We'll see how the bidding goes, but rest assured it will find a good home somewhere...

Great idea, and good luck!

By the way, I have read many studies on eBay about starting with a lower bid at the beginning to exponetially increase your ending bid. It's that power of competition that keeps eBay in business!
