    Suggestion. Go into great detail about how to care for the rock, and what it likes to do. Talk about how you will miss it. Pretend as if it's a pet. Make it as funny as possible. That's what gets people talking about it!

    And also, take the preapproved bidder thing off for now. You don't want to put that on until it gets into the more serious numbers. Right now it's too inconvenient for someone to bid on it.

    Just my thoughts.

    The idea is good but the auction needs some zip....pazzaz (or however you spell it)? Maybe re read the lady selling her kids ghost auction for some ideas? Pretend your telling your daughter a story about the rock....what it likes, doesn't like. What they played that day....something to give you ideas to jazz up the auction a bit. JMHO. Seems you not only have to come up with an idea but also be a story teller to do well in these auctions??? GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!! Will be watching!

    Yep, it's 90% about selling the story, and 10% about what you are selling, if that.
