Last-minute vacation buyers can breathe easy: the one-day auction of stones, NFT, and private phone calls with friends has been extended indefinitely.

Stone, a longtime GOP operator and friend of Donald Trump, was subpoenaed last month for documents and testimony related to the Jan.6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. In addition, he faces a federal lawsuit for an alleged amount of $ 2 million in unpaid taxes. This month, Stone announced that he will be auctioning personal memorabilia from noon to midnight on December 19. With unsold items, he says he’s extending his sale of autographed stones and photos of Trump.

“The auction is not over and it is over and it is continuing,” Stone told The Daily Beast on Wednesday.

Among the products still available are a collection of Mike Lindell figurines, photographs of Ronald Reagan, the movie “Grease” on DVD ($ 50) and several $ 100 stones with Stone’s signature.

Stone has already sold rocks. In 2018 he said Rolling stone that he had bought a collection of pebbles the size of a “paperweight” at Home Depot and was using them to raise money to cover his legal bills. He first sold the geodes for $ 10, then lowered the price to $ 8. “David made good use of a similar artifact against Goliath,” he announced at the 2018 fundraiser. “Order yours today! “

It was not clear whether the $ 100 stones represented Stone’s unsold offer for sale in 2018. Stone is also selling four one-hour private phone calls with Mike Adams, founder of the Natural News conspiracy website. As of Wednesday, no one had bid on any of the cats, which ranged in price from $ 200 to $ 500.

A handful of items are listed as “out of print,” suggesting the auction has already grossed some $ 7,000, from items such as autographed photographs, a Reagan NFT, and a copy of Trump’s book. The art of business, autographed by Trump.

Not all items seem to be Stone’s real waste of opportunity. Starting in September, Stone fans ran a donation center, donating items that Stone could sell online. This month, a Stone supporter described band together with friends to buy a flag that they could give to Stone for resale. It sold for $ 300.

The auction was not universally welcomed in the Trump universe. “Whoever catches where [radio host] Pete Santilli was helping Roger Stone with an auction? ” tweeted Kellye Sorelle, lawyer for the paramilitary group Oath Keepers. “The backstabbers, the liars and the cheaters… fun times.”

Santilli promoted the auction on his show, where he hosted Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes to promote the sale online. McInnes said that he considered Stone a father figure and that he first met Stone at a barbecue with TBEN News host Tucker Carlson.

Stone also recommended The Daily Beast check out a page for the “Stone Cold Collection,” but posted a link to a website that had not yet been registered. He did not return a request for clarification.

Stone attempted to promote the website on his Gab page on Wednesday, but used another misspelling, again pointing to a broken page.
