Thank you so much for all the donations... after nearly two years, we are finally ready to move forward with the official SI Auction We apologize for the delay, however life’s many obstacles were thrown our way.

In the coming days, we will be adding more items, so please keep checking back here for updates.

Payment for items can be made either via PayPal or check/money orders. Our address is:

SI.com
395 Sawdust RD., #2164
The Woodlands, Texas 77380-2299

Once payment has been received we will then ship your item to whatever address you provide. The shipping and address information will be part of the private exchange between the member and MH or DS.


  • Each item donated will have its own thread with a description, picture and name of the donor.

  • If members would prefer to bid anonymously, please PM the auctioneer and your bid will be anonymously added to the appropriate thread.

  • The winning bidder will assume the shipping costs and we will ship all items UPS ground unless otherwise specified by the winning bidder. UPS ground automatically insures every package up to $100.00. If you require additional insurance for shipping purposes, please advise us at the time of purchase and we will include that additional cost in the total shipping charges.

We will treat each item individually. Once an item no longer (maybe 2 days) has activity, we'll shut down that auction thread and the item will go to the highest bidder.

Also, we are respectfully asking that no one use any of these threads to joke/banter on. They must remain dedicated to the auction only.

I am going to go search my attic, DS,(because there are some treasures up there) but would I be right in thinking there are so few UK members for it to be not worthwhile for you, if I find anything?

ETA: This might seem a MAD suggestion - and I underline is NOT made as a joke - but it seems to me that so many of us have discarded our wedding rings, there MUST be something we can do with them - donate them to a special SI wedding ring repository? For melting/ selling? Set up a ring exchange as an international bonding exercise between survivors of infidelity?

Just an idea, but maybe you should list whether an item is new or used.

Some stuff may be obvious (like a gift basket), while others (like a purse) may not.

Nurse...

That is a good idea...I've updated the descriptions to indicate "New" or "used".

As for the art work, I'm going to assume it wasn't taken of someone's wall and sent to us

It's not "used." It's "vintage" or "retro" or "neoclassical."

I'm an auction ignoramus. Is there any reason why the reserve price isn't posted in the original item's description? IMO, I think that would be more helpful if you're interested in an item enough to bid (so you know up front what you can expect to pay).

I think it would be helpful to atleast get a starting price close to the reserve if one isn't to be listed. It seems the $100 mark might be the reserve going rate and some of the bidding wont ever reach it. I'm with Mom of 2. Try a couple and see what happens, at minimal you could get the reserve. Just my 2 cents.

If I send something to be auctioned, can someone else set the base price for it? I paint, but I have never tried to sell any and I couldn't even BEGIN to figure out what they might sell for in order to give you a base price for them.

I'd really like to help, though

Thanks!

you just made me belly laugh

I was just wondering if there was more work involved than you originally thought, if you were going to do things differently for next time and what those things might be and if we, the contributors could do anything differently to help.

And maybe what items you would like to see more of?

When the next one will take place, say, when you have 10 items or more?

An informal meeting but without charts.

It was much more work than I expected. MH's part is done since he programmed everything in. But all the packaging up, labeling and making several trips to the post office was all on me

I think once we hit 10 items again, we'll start a new one. So far we have 4 more items

The biggest help from anyone donating would be to include a small description of the items they're donating

$573.00 a month!!!!! How on earth have you all been paying for this???? I had no idea a message board would be so pricy. I know where I will be sending a Christmas card this year!!!!

You have kept this board free somehow, thank you. I remember the state of mind I was in when I found SI. If I would have seen something on here asking me to pay I would have cried harder. SI swept in and helped anytime of day or night without asking for anything.

Thank you so much.

It was my pleasure DS. You and MH are such wonderful people. I absolutely adore you two. I definitely look forward to seeing you guys again. Maybe the day of the Kiss concert? Perhaps an early dinner beforehand. If not, definitely another time.

Donation Question:

Would a brand new, never been opened crockpot be a good donation item to bid on??

I also have a never opened gift basket full of lotions/soaps and such.

Let me know.

Just wondering: since all the threads are locked, does that mean the Auction is over?? Or is it just *this* auction is over? I posted in another thread that once I get the shipping cost, I was going to donate one of my blankets for auction.

I'm not sure if y'all have already covered this but if you want a place to melt down unwanted wedding rings, my mom (who is a BS) is a jeweler and she can melt it down and the proceeds can go to SI if you'd like. (DS I promise I won't send you 20000 texts or stalk you )

Hello - I'm not sure how to use the online auction but I have several things I would like to donate. I have a copy of if we're so in love why aren't we happy, love must be tough and also an ebook for wayward spouses on what to do after an affair. I'm in the UK though so not sure if that makes a difference? Thanks

DS - I was looking for a mailing box to send my Christmas cards in, and I found the baby quilt I thought I had already shipped to you for the auction. Oops.

Would it be ok to combine the two things (cards and auction item) in one box?

Thankseversomuch.

Your quilt came with your Christmas cards...it's soooo cute!!!

Thank you very much...I know it will be a great item to add to the auction

Which now will have to take place after the 1st of the year since we're just so darn busy with the holidays.

Thank you again!!!

DS, did my item come? I got the delivery notice, but wasn't sure that meant it was just dropped off or that you actually took possession of it.

Thanks.

I make Anglican Rosaries and prayer beads. If you think there would be any interest, I would be happy to donate a couple for auction.

CP...

That would be great!!

I've finished catagorizing, photographing and writing up descriptions for each item so MH can begin his programming side of things.

I'm hoping we should have the next auction in place within the next 6 weeks

How does the auction work??

Will items be posted in this forum? Silent bids??

Obviously I am a Newbie.

Edit!!! Duh...didn't go far enough down the forum list. I see it now.

DS, are you still recommending a bidding war on my items? I seem to remember you suggesting it after bb called dibs on one.

Oh and I do hope you're enjoying (and using) the one I made for you and MH.

I bid on the Kindle. How does this auction work? After a few days of inactivity the highest bidder wins???

does banter (no bid, ex: Aesir's comment on the pandora bracelet thread) count as activity?

ETA: If so, I'll specifically refrain from commenting on stuff unnecessarily so as not to delay the excitement of winning an auction for anyone.

Do you have a list of the book names to possibly sell to newbies? I went on Amazon and there are a zillion infidelity books. I have no idea what is good and even at the cheap prices I have no idea what to get.


Also where do I go to see the current auctions?

brokenprincess -

We do not sell books at this time. The Healing Library has a list of book suggestions. Below is the link.

There are no open auctions at this time. When there are, you will see items listed in this forum. The next auction starts in May.
