The best items to sell at your charity auction are one-of-a-kind opportunities that have no limit to their value. Things that are not easily obtained elsewhere will create the most profitable bidding wars and intense excitement in the audience. When there is a stated retail value, bidders tend to stop at that pre-set spending limit.
Avoid donated auction items that sell below value. These are usually artwork, professional services and jewelry. They are considered individual choices and usually do not sell well at auctions. Unless you know you have several ready bidders prior to your benefit auction event, avoid these types of items.
