Sure. I'd be interested. I don't think it's inappropriate, as long as it's
done well, and tastefully.

And of course, all items to be sold should definitely be Newton-related.

Make sure the subject heading is REALLY clear, like:

NewtonBay Auction!

(Just a suggestion.)



(PS I take it you want the bids coming to your personal email, & not
posted.....MAKE THAT CLEAR to people......seeing the Auction itself is one
thing....but a million BIDS by Newton users is another entirely!)

The box said "Windows 95 or better" so I bought a Macintosh.
