Default What should I make to Donate to a Silent Auction?

I posted this on the Craft Show thread, too, but I thought I would ask this here too!!

I have been asked by our local MOPS group to donate some items for a silent auction at their upcoming vendor fair (there is already a MOPS member who sells bows, so I will not be selling my bows as a vendor). They asked me to include my business cards along with my items.

I have several questions for you all: 1) how many items should I donate? and 2) what items should I donate? The show is November 6. I am hoping that whomever bids on them and/or wins them will like them enough to buy more!!

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you, everyone!!

That might have been helpful to include, huh?? I make mainly bows - boutique, stacked, pinwheel, some OTT, korkers, and woven headbands. I was thinking about making a few woven headband sets - maybe one with a korker to attach, one with a small-ish stacked bow? And I was thinking of doing christmas colors.

I will also probably donate one of the ballerina bows like the one in my avatar.

What do you suggest?

So even though you aren't there as a bow vendor, you are free to donate your bows, right? Are they being auctioned as individual items, or in a group? I think two groups of three related items would be nice. Maybe a korker, a boutique, and a woven headband, all in coordinating CMas colors? And then your adorable ballerina boutique bow, and a pinwheel with the ballet shoes, and a headband with some of the same colors. You could package them up beautifully, with your business card, and I bet there would be a bidding war! Could you also have a small easel with your business information as an advertisement, and a few other business cards for those who don't win the bidding war but may want to order from you later?

I love M's idea as well. Having them in groups in a cute little package would be perfect
