Oldsalty's Fundraising Auction

Oldsalty's Fundraising Birthday Auction.
As most of you are aware, our good friend Oldsalty has fallen on tough times yet again with health, and other issues.
His run of bad luck is one that just seems to continue week after week, month after month. How can so many bad things happen to such a nice, and "likeable" person?
Well, I can't sit and let this continue to happen, Oldsalty needs some goodluck for a change. So, I would like to hold an Auction for Oldsalty to raise some money to help him with his health, and money issues.
At the end of the auction which will run until July 13th the winner would need to transfer funds before the items would be sent, all proceeds going to Oldsalty. 
If you feel you are able to help add to the list of auction items, please reply here or PM me, and I will edit it into this post.
Members not wanting to bid on any of the auction items can also make a monetary donation, however big or small if they wish. Details to follow. 
This post will be continually updated, so please keep an eye out for updates and added auction items. I welcome all comments regarding any improvements you'd care to suggest.  :P

Let's turn Oldsalty's bad luck around. 
Hey SR is this thread just for building the collection for the auction or is the bidding happening in this thread also?
:dance:   You are awesome SR!!! I was thinking of starting some kind of Auction or fundraiser for OS last night myself. Now that you have the ball rolling, I'll go see Scott on Sunday and get some bottles of LDHS to donate to the collection for the auction.
Thanks Hogleg, that sounds great. I will be adding items to the original post above^ and bidding can be submitted here. I'd really prefer the bidding to happen here via a post so that there is no question of ME raising bids by phantom bidding.
I'm also thinking that members could also make a monetary donation, however big or small, instead of bidding on the items above if they wish.

Thanks again,
