This is not a tiered auction. This auction will get a new item every day for the first twelve days of December. Please watch this listing to find out the items, or return on the morning of December 13th to place a final bid.

First Day is a $25 (2810 XNK) iTunes gift card.

Auction will start on December 1st at 12PM CST and end on December 13th, 2018 at 12PM CST. Starting bid is 19.99 XNK. Shipping is free!

Auction Items: I will list new items between 9AM - 12PM CST everyday from December 1-12th using the “edit auction” feature. I will list items one would need, chintzy stuff, practical items that are good for the household, handmade items, toys, etc. I am not taking requests for this auction. WYSIWYG.

Payment: Please send me your verified Listia mailing address as soon as you win the auction. If the winner delays this process I cannot guarantee that the shipment makes it to you before the holiday. If there are weather delays around this time please take note of them as I cannot be held responsible for that lead time. If winner doesn’t send information after three days (which would really break my heart), I reserve the right to relist the auction and keep the credits per Listia rules. . . which is very Grinch-like. So, let’s not do that! 

Shipping: I will be shipping USPS First Class based on weight. This option could change if USPS flat rate would be cheaper & quicker for the winner. As I list items they will go into this box and will be ready for shipment the final day of the auction. I will quickly pack the box, wait for a confirmed address, take it immediately to USPS and then send the tracking information to the winner. After tracking info is provided I cannot be held responsible for any shipping delays.

I ship to the *contiguous United States only.*

All Listia rules apply.

As always, if you have questions please ask them prior to your bid. Ask them soon and bid often!

Thanks for popping in, good luck, and have a Merry Christmas!

    Day two: 2 handmade stockings (*by me*) in a nautically themed fabric. Measurements are 17" L x 6" W. The back of both stockings are in a glitter burlap. Both are fully lined and ready to be hung “with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.” Please realize that handmade items may contain imperfections and that is part of their charm and uniqueness. Future listings will contain items that can go in these stockings *hint-hint*.

    Day three: 3 strings of Christmas lights. White bulbs that are stay lit. Nearly 60 feet of lights total. For indoors or outside.

    Day Five: Gifts for pets which includes two cat balls (they have bells in them, fair warning), a cat toy with feather in it's head, a hamburger squeaker toy for a dog (again, it makes noise), a chew bone, and $10 gift card to Petsmart to buy whatever treat you would need for your fur friend. All items in my "12 Days of Christmas" listing are new unless otherwise noted. If you do not have pets, I highly recommend donating these items to a local shelter as they always need a little more help around this time of year. 



    So far, if we had to do a 1:1 for dollars spent to XNK, the value of this auction is 10760.03 (does not including shipping costs). I started this auction at 19.99 and do not expect it to hit the true INK value, but I will be recording this occasionally so it can be declared for shipping purposes.

    Day Six: Household products that I know I myself will need once the holiday is over. Have you ever cooked a big holiday meal and looked down at your oven mitt and say “This really has seen the worst of it.” Or, maybe you were soaking a pot and asked yourself “Where the heck did all my sponges go?” I think the one thing I always need is a candle to take out the eternal pot roast smell in my house during these times. So, that’s what day six is all about. You get two scrubber dish cloths, one oven mitt, one dish towel, two quick erasers, two heavy duty scrub sponges and an 5 oz. candle in the scent “Black Sand and Cashmere” which happens to be the complete opposite of “Pot Roast.”

    Day seven: We all know just how stressful the holidays can be, so day seven is about slowing things down a bit. These items include an Adult Activity Book (puzzles, coloring, paint by numbers, etc.), 10 colored pencils, a Spin Art activity set, a composition notebook for writing down all the recipes you need to shop for or maybe you want to keep a diary reflecting your decent into madness due to the holidays, a “Today I Need to; Mini Goals” notepad and Crayola Dough in the colors Blue Sky and Firefly Red. You know, because sometimes during the holidays you need to grab something and squeeze it really hard in your hands and reaffirm “YOU GOT THIS! YOU WILL SURIVE THE HOLIDAYS!”

    Day Eight: If you can find the time to bathe during the crazy season this might be the day you enjoy most. Day eight is filled with beauty products that make the one bath you take during this time all the better and includes three lavender bath bombs (5.3 oz each), 2 retinol sheet face masks, a unicorn bath bomb (3.5 oz), schmidts activated charcoal toothpaste (because you know you’ve had too many sodas or maybe it’s too many glasses of wine?), a nail grooming kit for the nails you will be breaking because of all the wrapping, decorating, and I can’t give a nail kit without giving some red nail polish. PLUS, since this day is mostly purple in color how about some purple eyeshadow? ;) Lastly, two handmade *by me* bars of soap that is good for body but especially for the hands!! Those dry and cracking hands from being in hot water all the time then right back out into the cold, dry weather. It smells like Kai (the perfume), which is a handmade scent. Soap is made with organic saponified oils and locally sourced ingredients.

    Day nine: his day is about bling for the holiday. This is costume jewelry and there is nothing with real jewels or precious metals. These items can be for yourself or for gifting. This day includes sets of small stud earring in a gold color. The studs come in the shapes circle, line, cube, and triangle. Also included are two pairs of pineapple stud earrings. There is a 70” wrap choker in a brown leather material in here, and two handmade *by me* bottle cap necklaces with charms “love it” and “come together.”

    Day ten: This day is about not having to cook so much and comes with 5 vouchers for McDonalds Value Meals. Also included is a $25 dollar gift card to The Cheesecake Factory. There is also a $10 gift card to Target. There is also a $15 gift card for groceries (Albertsons, Vons, or any Safeway grocer). We have $10 gift card to Starbucks and a $10 gift card to Duncan Donuts. Yes, all these gift cards and vouchers are in this box/listing. $105 in gift card and vouchers alone are in this listing. Plenty to use yourself because you’ve given up on cooking till the new year, or maybe you want to share it with your friends, or family, or those in your community a little down on their luck?

    Value of the items in the box so far is $265 dollars. That is equal to 43,694.83 Ink Protocol. Again, I do not expect to receive the full XNK for this listing but I will record this occasionally, and at the end of the auction, so I can declare it at the post office.

    Day Eleven: So, we got the self care stuff, the bath stuff, some stuff to decorate and wrap up gifts. Now lets get you wearing some things to put you in the holiday spirt!! We have two shirts to wear, both size large. One says Your “gift” is in the litter box and the other is Santa as Big Foot with the words I believe. We have a knitted cap that’s a polar bear. We have a Santa hat and reindeer ears. We have knee high socks, one is with Santa the other with a reindeer. We have twenty piece press on nails in a Christmas light decoration. Also in this we have two headbands, one bandeau and one yellow that would be great with the bath stuff. Lastly, a pair of comfy socks with grips on the bottom so you don’t slip around. 



    Day Twelve: Finally, the toy stuff!!! YAY! This day has two containers of Flarp!, one pink and one blue. Two Thinking Cap Activities: “Grow your own Snow” and “Grow Your Own Gel Balls.” A checker board. Woodshop Sailboat. A wood brain teaser puzzle— really these items might keep the kids occupied for a while, thats good! Two Marvel collectable lapel pins. Two Disney stickers: 111 Star Wars stickers and 111 Frozen stickers. Two paperback books: Puss in Boots and The Ugly Duckling.

    You will be able to create some very solid stockings for two kids this year (boy and girl) if you win this auction. The $15 grocery card should be plenty to buy the chocolates for the stocking, if that's what you wanted to do with it.

    I am no leaving this auction open for any questions or comments that I need to respond to.

    Again, what you see in this listing--all items in the images above--will be in one box. They are brand new and will be ready to send out as soon as this auction closes.

    Spectacular auction. Perfect for Christmas. Love the variety. Perfect for making a few different gift boxes / bags for a few people. :)
    Original
    Thank you for the compliment! My intention with this auction was someone’s ability to do just what you said. I’ve had a couple of rough Christmases in my past and put this auction together in order to help someone out there struggling to make it through the holidays. Hopefully this listing can help.
  • Original
    You are amazing. Greatly. My plan is to do just that. I have a few neighbors that don't have family here and spend Christmas alone.
    1 has a Cat I'm sure will be very happy.
    The doggie gifts will go to someone in need.
    As will everything else. I'm in it to win it. May God Bless you and yours Always.
    Thank you for you.

    Your welcome for answering. I love Mystery items, I do many myself, so guessing is fun too. And waiting makes one who wants this come back to check upon it as well.

    It is pretty fun, and is in the total spirt of giving. Hopefully people watching enjoy it. Even more, I hope it's something the winner can super appreciate.

    Do you have any Dog sweaters, new make up like purple eye shadow? Still bidding even if you don`t have those items
    Original
    I do have some pet items coming up soon. There is not a sweater, but there is something that could turn into one? Purple eyeshadow will not be in the box, but there are some items in that general category in a few days. I don't want to ruin the surprise(s)! Thanks for the question, Dustie!
  • Original
    not a request above just was wondering
    Original
    It's not a problem, and I didn't see the question as a request. I understand one would like to know at least what they are bidding on. I just wanted to keep this auction in the holiday spirt. Thanks for understanding!

    Good morning. Are the McDonald's Gift Vouchers or Gift Cards. And if vouchers are they accepted everywhere + do they have expiration dates?

    Thank you b
    Original
    They say they are “accepted at any participating McDonalds” and *do not* have an expiration date. Might be worth checking your local McDonalds to see if they would be an issue. If so, I can exchange these five vouchers for a $25 gift card instead.

    Thanks for the question!
  • Original
    Oh yes,the gift card would be a great deal better. Thank you.
    Original
    No problem! If the final winner wants to swap the vouchers out for a gift card just let me know when the auction closes and I’ll do that exchange.

    Thank you for such a nice comment.

    There are often deals here on Listia and you are bound to find some treasure. Just in case, and if I’m lucky enough, I’ll be back on Listia again next Christmas doing another listing like this one... just in case! ;)

    Merry Christmas!
