DIY Gear Supply - Your source for DIY outdoor gear.
How about a raffle for the next piece of gear?
Say your asking price is $60 for a piece of gear, everybody interested kicks in $5. Once you have, say 1.5x your asking price, you close it and, on your honor, pick a random winner.
Enough people around here have been helping me get $ to send my daughter Bookworm on a trip to Australia, I don't mind kicking in a few to help your mom...
Also there is a rule against posting a raffle style sale in the For Sale forum:
3. Items listed in the FS section should be listed with a selling price. No auction-style posts, bidding on items, or linking to auctions.
