Jelly Babies!

Originally posted at Con or Bust by Wendy Bradley. All comments must be made there.

Item Name & Description: A pound of Jelly Babies!!! Up to one pound weight of Jelly Babies, either on their own or as part of a care package of other British confectionery or foodstuffs.


Starting Bid: 25$


Notes: Please note postage from the UK to the US is included and will be a minimum of $11, hence the rather large minimum bid required. I will make up the package in discussion with the winning bidder – you can have it in jelly babies or a mixture of British sweeties (or anything else within reason that takes your culinary fancy – Henderson’s relish? Earl Grey teabags?) Non-perishables only, obviously.

The Stairway in the Glacier

photos of handspun, handwoven scarfItem Name & Description: “The Stairway in the Glacier” is a handspun, handwoven scarf designed and made by award-winning SF/F writer Susan Palwick. The scarf is 100% wool — much softer and less allergenic than commercial wool, since it’s handspun — and comes with its own origin story, a one-page piece of original fiction. The scarf measures 9″ x 67″, with six inches of twisted fringe on each end. The step pattern was created using a clasped-weft technique. Please note that I own cats; I’ve washed the scarf and kept it in a secure container, but I can’t promise that there isn’t some fur in there somewhere.
