This sounded really simple at first,  but looks like it may be more
complicated than first thought
..  First come with a set price is about the only way you could do it
without going to an auction format. If everyone says their highest price
they will pay it really is a kind of an auction anyway, isn't it?
All email that I've ever gotten has a time stamp on it, so should be easy
to keep track of who came first for the seller, if the decision is to go
that route.
Glad that it isn't my decision...  Just let me know where and when...Make
it SOON!!!
