These Dr. Horrible  paper goggles come signed by some of the creators and artists of Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog.

First up, Zack Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancheroen Whedon!







Next up, the one and only Felicia Day. These will not be auctioned off together though, so you will have to decide, do you want one? or both!

It was so popular last year, we're offering another one.

Inara Strikes. Crossbow in hand, she's ready to strike down any Reavers who come her way. The Statues are limited to 1,000 pieces, & she is sized to fit in with other Serenity statues such as the River triumphant.

  Here's a review:  http://bashinginminds.com/2007/12/20/review-diamond-select-inara-strike-statue/
Did we mention that the auction is cash only?

Auction item 2

HBO Canada was very good to us! Take a look at this! All episodes of the award winning show Deadwood. It comes complete with it's own bag.

And now, some of the auction items.

Once again, people have been so generous with their donations to the Can't Stop The Serenity auction that we have to show you pictures to do them justice. First up is a parasol donated by Firefly Cargo Bay.
But it is more than just a Kaylee inspired parasol. At a recent convention Jewel Staite signed this for free instead of charging her usual fee.
