Subject: [CR]Questions about the Wool Jersey Cirque Auction pages

OK guys, I don't get it..

How does just anyone upload pics of items to be auctioned to the auction pag e?

And maybe a better description might be in order because it is not clear wha t exactly is at auction. That last pic is supposed to be what?

And maybe it would be cool to know if it's a  100% donation or partial donation?
