As I continue to pear down the things that I keep bringing from place to place and never using, I have come to realize that my violin is a better paper weight then an instrument to me.

My parents bought me my violin, something I'd always wanted, for my 18th birthday.  When I moved out a few months later they told me that though they had promised to get me lessons, that promise was only good so long as I still lived at home.  I have never taken lessons and can not play more then a note on the damn thing with the bow.  I can play the stings by ear, but for all I know, the bridge isn't set up right and everything's all off.

If you need a violin, want a violin, could use a violin and are alight with the fact that 12 years ago this violin cost $100 from a store in Chatham, ON this could be yours.  Write me about why you want this to be your violin....  Comments screened.

Oh btw, violin is full sized, comes with a hard case and a (crappy) bow.  I bought new strings for it about 6 years ago and all the strings also have fine-tuners on them for minor tuning adjustments.

A dear friend of mine is participating in the upcoming Ride to Conquer Cancer--Biking from Toronto, On to Niagara Falls On.  Recently he moved, and when he did, he found these Lip Service clothes that he never wears anymore.  He gave them to me to do with as I would and well, I decided the best thing to do with them is to sell them off to the highest bidder in 48 hours and donate the money to his pledge drive.

Both items are in as new condition, without tags.  They are older Lip Service items, however the jacket similar to one found in the more recent Hollywood Geisha line.  The advantage to older, as new Lippy is that it's less likely to be seen on anyone else!

This is a men's jacket, Size Small.  Former owner was about 5'8" and of slender build and it was a bit big on him, though it still looked good.

A close-up of the fabric of the jacket, as well as the closure system.  This is the sleeve cuff, however these closures are what is used all down the front of the jacket as well.

Skirt is a heavier brocade with a front box-type pleat near from about the knee down.  Easy to dance in.  Has jeans style four-pocket design with belt loops and zipper fly.  Listed as Size 30 waist.

The two items are not part of the same line, but they look great together as an outfit.

Let the bidding begin!!

.....  A large slab of humanly collected (well as humainly as possible) bees wax?  Its really pure, really nice melting and its free.  The slab, before it fell off the table and broke, was the size of one of those huge rectangular margarine tubs.  It's now two slabs that add up to that size.  My uncle is a bee keeper and this comes from his hives down in the Chatham area, I believe it's from clover honey if that makes any difference.

You wants, you gots, just let me know ok?i
