Wow, really amazing work. Do you really think you'll get a thousand and a half for 'em? With that award, I bet it's certainly worth it, but will people find it and pay for it?

That definitely sounds like a high starting bid O.o

Why not have a smaller starting bid and a longer duration?

well, think of it this way, at the amount it's at, and how long it took, thats only about 3 bucks an hour.

Yes, but think with the consumer in mind; will they recognize that? Not unless they're a collector. The kind of person who would search for this on eBay.

Think about it: you're selling a high-priced item on Ebay with no enormous amount of positive feedback. How are you going to charge 1500 for something that consumers won't recognize as worth more than 10?

Yeah. I mean, what's wrong with just accepting best in show?

brief, and succinct...

A lot of you don't realize how much carvings and actual craftsmanship actually go for. It's a dead trade, so something like this is practically a commodity.

Come out to Carmel, CA (outside Monterey) or Medecino County (4 hours north of SF). You get the idea.

Shadowflare, if this doesn't work out for you, you might consider going to one of those "we sell it on eBay" services.
