    Default FP Geeks Silent Auction Pen Wraps

    In looking for a way to "give back" to the Forum itself, I came up with this idea: The Pen Wrap below is up for "Silent Auction", with all proceeds to go to the FP Geeks Forum as a contribution.

    Please note: there will be a second wrap added to this auction around the end of the week, it will have an "Asian" motif. All fabrics are high thread-count cottons, all of them with metallic elements. There can be separate winners.

    If you're interested, just PM me with the price you'd pay [I pay shipping] and we'll keep it going through September. At the end of the month, highest bidder uses the "Contribute Button" and, boom, it ships.

    That's a great idea. I think I might just do something similar in the near future!

    This one is really nice too.
    I think it would be nice if people would comment in the thread if they are going to bid (or not)
