Offer: Elegant Industrial Wisteria Bracelet (Stainless Steel & Titanium)

Item Name & Description: One Elegant Industrial Wisteria Bracelet by Wraptillion

Starting Bid: $50


You all have been so awesome in your bidding that I am offering a new design that I've never sold before. Starting bid is $50 due to the substantial amount of work that goes into these (retail price if I do decide to sell them will be much higher).

(bigger images here and here)

This bracelet is made from stainless steel hardware linked with titanium (aerospace industry waste). It's lightweight, flexible, and has a subtle shine. It's my current absolute favorite of everything I make. I will custom-size it to fit your wrist; the winner should contact me with any concerns about how to measure wrist size for this bracelet.

Please let me know by Sunday, May 1st what length of bracelet you would like, or contact me to discuss alternate options (if you'd rather have a different bracelet from my shop, I can do that instead).

I can deliver this to you at WisCon, or I am happy to ship this anywhere in the world at no additional cost.

Last minute offer! Custom Box o' Books

Item Name & Description: Custom Box of Books

Both my spouse and I read widely and voraciously, and have a long list of fantastic books we'd like to share with, well, anyone who'd like to listen to us ramble about books.

We're offering a box of 3-6 handpicked books on a theme or subject of the winner's choice. The theme can be almost anything "Fantasy books featuring women of color;" "Space operas with believable sci/tech;" "History of the doctrine of transubstantiation in western churches;" "Submarine disasters in WWII;" "Pop science/math written by POC" In the case that you pick something that neither of us have read widely in, I'll let you know and we can work out a second choice or I can work off published reviews of books in the field.

Starting Bid: $15


For obvious cost reasons I will be buying books from used bookstores, which means I cannot make any promises about the books being allergy-safe.

Will ship anywhere in world by overland/overwater (ie cheapest) method.

Free shipping within the U.S.; happy to negotiate shipping arrangements to other parts of the world. Free shipping to anywhere on any book for which the final bidder pays over $100.

I live with two cats and a lot of books, so all these books have been (albeit very briefly) exposed to cat dander and dust when I opened them to verify signatures. I promptly wrapped them up in plastic following that, but they should still not be considered hypoallergenic.

Many thanks to Subterranean Press for this extraordinary donation to con_or_bust.

Leatherbound edition of The Riddle-Master of Hed

Item Name & Description: OK, last-minute auction. This is for an Easton Press edition of Patricia McKillip's The Riddle-Master of Hed. For those not familiar with Easton, they do leatherbound editions of various books - some signed first editions and some not. This is one of the latter, in their "Masterpieces of Fantasy" line, so it is not signed, but it is a nice leatherbound edition of the book, with a frontispiece by Pat Morrissey.

The book is in excellent condition with the exception of a small tear to the cover. You can see a picture of the book behind the cut, so you can assess the damage.

Starting Bid: $50 (there's only a day left, after all)

Notes: Shipping is free in the US. Outside the US I might ask for the difference in cost, depending on how much it is.
