I think the question was more about the sort of stuff on the auction/raffle.

Typically this will vary according to what's been donated at the time, but there's usually a selection of books - as it's a launch I expect there'll be at least one proof copy of Toyminator up for grabs and possibly some other related goodies too.
Can anybody help me out and remind me what was on the last few auctions? I forget off the top of my head. I recall the Count Otto Black 666 note though.

jacket cover proofs, maps, posters, proof copies, badges and, not to mention, the hand written poems (now adorning my study wall) Very Happy amongst some of the delights regularly on offer.
Unfortunately I'm only one week into my six week summer holiday and what with the low levels of teachers pay I'm broke already 'till pay day at the end of August Crying or Very sad

Most of the stuff went for reasonable prices (still out of my current budget though) The Eddie Bear was the only big one, going for around 60

Were it not for that the high bidder was already a forum member I'd have been going for Ian's chocolate purchase.

Scouse there would have been no reason to bump me off as i was skint to. You'll be happy to hear that i did win on the raffle and it was with a ticket that was bought just after Ian so i managed to get one over on old money bags Very Happy A lovely book club edition of the Brightonomicon now sits on my shelf. Ian on the other hand had to pay big bucks for his chocolate teddy which has a small hole nibbled in the back of its head but he'll never notice unless he takes it out of the box Laughing
