    Through a combination of my over-caution and someone else's generosity, I ended up with an extra club Seacon set. Although I know that a lot of folks dislike eBay, I still find it the best way for me to sell such items. I'm doing things a bit different with this one, though, and hope that folks who are still looking for the set will consider my auction for these reasons:

    • Low $9.99 opening bid
    • Free shipping to US buyers
    • 10% of the auction proceeds (minimum of $5) will go to Kiva, an organization that specializes in "micro-loans" to support small businesses in impoverished parts of the world.

    [EBAYLINK="270288069827"]Here's the link to the auction.[/EBAYLINK] The auction closes on Monday, October 20th, at 10:35 am PDT.

    But if I buy from you I'd miss out on that glorious membership to the TFCC. Are you going to bonbard me with useless newsletters and exclusive toys I don't care about (present item excluded, of course) if I win?

    I found out that a friend of mine still has his TFCC membership and that he'd order this set for me at the club price. Of course, I already paid for my pre-order on BBTS. Oh well, the nice thing about this is I can always sell it off and get what I paid for it. Kudos for the auction though.

    I don't know anything about that one, and suffice it to say it has nothing to do with the set I'm selling. I'll tell eBay that they're using my picture. What they do at that point is up to them.

    FYI, the auction ends just after 10:30 am PDT tomorrow morning (10/20/08). As has already been noted, since this auction was begun, the Seacons set has sold out at the club store, but the price is currently still below the US non-member price once shipping is accounted for.

    Good luck man. It's great that you are donating a portion of the winner bid. It's also news to me that they are sold out. Glad I got mine :thumb

    Yes... failing a bargain coming along, all in it worked out competitive (uk based non- club member), plus the added bonus of helping out another TFW2005er and a charity all at the same time. Looking forward to it!
