First, let me assure you that I will be 'standing down' on this auction...in hopes that you actually will win the Snow Princess. I haven't bid on her
so far...and I'll not bid on her tonight.
Now, my two cents of advice:
1 cent: If she goes up too high...I think you should release her. I don't know your experience with auctions...but the general rule of thumb is to not
get caught up in the bidding process, unless you're absolutely dead set on winning 'at any cost'.
2 cents: Follow the bidding closely in the last half hour or so of the auction...keep a mental note of who (which bidder #) will be your toughest
By the final 30 seconds, have the current high bid ready to go (typed into box 1, but not yet sent)...with your ABSOLUTE ("yikes, this-is-crazy...what
am I doing?"... highest bid (+ 20-50%)...typed in to box 2, but not yet sent.
In the last 10-15 seconds CLICK your bid in...ASAP!
Then...cross your fingers and hope for the best!
One thing I've noticed with this particular online auction house...is that if last minute bidding is very contentious and heavy at the time-out
closing...they keep extending the bidding past the previous closing time by ongoing increments of 5 minutes. This is where the bidding can really get
Based on how the price of Snow Princess has increased throughout the past several days...as well as the current number of already interested
bidders,...it would not be surprising if SP jumps to $400-$500...or even higher in the last minutes of bidding.
That said, I hope it stays low...and in the end, Claire and her sister are reunited under your roof.
partsgirl, everyone here is rooting for you. Good Luck. -TAT
