Nie Nie Day silent auction

I'm auctioning a board that I made. I found these cool vintage looking knobs last year, but was never sure what to use them on.
The board is white, has 5 knobs to hang things on, and it says HERO in cream vinyl, and in red vinyl it says: hero: a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. it measures 19.5 inches x 7 inches.

now before anyone calls me sexist, let me explain my thoughts and feelings as I was making this piece. When thinking about the Firefighter knobs, hero is what kept coming up in my mind. Another hero I've had on my mind was Doug Kinneard, Christian's flight instructor. I've read a lot about Doug in the last week, and although I don't think he ever had anything to do with firefighting, I do know that he served our military and was a pilot in the Gulf War to name a few accomplishments. His family is missing their hero, and I believe he is a hero also. So when I looked up the definition of HERO at Websters.com and it stated clearly "a man", my inner feminist wanted to change it. However, I made this board with Doug in my thoughts on on my heart, and he truly was a man who deserves the title of hero!

I will start the bidding at $1, please leave comments to make bids in full dollar increments. I will pay for first class shipping to the winner. The auction starts at midnight tonight and will end on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. PST. The winner can pay via paypal or check. If you are bidding anonymously, please leave some way I can contact you if you win - like email address.

Thank you for stopping by!
