Default School Auction Ideas?

Has anyone ever donated their items for a school auction? I need some ideas! I know the flower bows in a pot is great, but I don't think a lot of girls in our elementary school wear bows. Any other ideas? TIA!

Keychains , keychains , keychains!! These were such a hit at my daughters school and they weren't even for an auction !! someone saw one that I had made and another that I had for my daughter that I made out of a bottlecap that I put as a zipper pull on her bag.

bottle caps with your school mascot would be way cute! I did that with bows and they were a big hit

I made a checker board for my sons class earlier this year. Just used a flat canvas, they are like 3 for $5 or so at Michael's & painted them with spray paint in a checkerboard pattern. Then I used bottlecaps in 2 colors & made them with the school mascot on them. It is appareantly the game to play in class.
I am actually working on something for the class now that is much more work. I am making a momopoly game with all the spaces with school themes & the principals name etc... It is ready except the cards & the $$. Pending on how this works out I may make another one for the auction at the end of the year.

I know these aren't bow related but everyone knows me at the school from the checkerboard & ask all the time what else I make.

Ok, here I go again.
What kind of bottle caps are you using for the checker board. I have been web surfing and have seen so many. Are they the real bottle caps with rigid edges? Do you use a magnet on the underside so its smooth to shuffle on the board? Sorry, for so many questions
Thanks,
