The Auctioneer's Lament

As you may recall, the Decemberists recently auctioned off some of their possessions in order to benefit victims of the dreaded tsunami earlier this year. For those who missed out (I was fortunate enough to procure two Carson Ellis original watercolours for a bargain price) or simply remain unsated, the band once again is offering their wares on eBay, this time to benefit themselves in the wake of what shall be known as the Great Stolen Instruments Fiasco of 2005. For offer are props from the Picaresque photo shoot and the Sixteen Military Wives video, along with Carson's hand-rendering of the major instruments that were lost (and one that was found). Perhaps most interesting is this one-of-a-kind t-shirt, fresh from Colin Meloy's back.
