Benefit Auction for Esther Rodgers: one Device with cosmetic flaw

Official YouTube announcement:

Anyone who stopped by to see Esther Rodgers of Jazzturtle Creations at SAFF knows that she suffered from a serious medical issue, requiring a hospitalization lasting almost two weeks and leaving her unable to teach at SAFF or really do much other than be appreciative of all the love and support she received from the community in her booth over the past weekend.
WE can do something to help. Questionable Origin is donating one of our e-spinners (with a slight manufacturing scar) to an eBay auction to benefit Esther Rogers (a.k.a. Jazz Turtle Creations) to help offset medical costs and the loss of earnings while she begins her long road to recuperation.

This specific Device is not being taken out of the pool of six soon to be made available to the people on the waiting list maintained by Spunky Eclectic.

It will be a three day auction beginning on Friday 11 November 2016. All proceeds of the auction will be going to Esther.

QO will cover the auction fees, and a generous donor has agreed to cover shipping.
