Here is a list of tried and true items that perform well in an online auction.

  1. Tickets to sporting events, the theater, and symphony.
  2. The latest and most popular electronics, like an iPad, Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
  3. Specialty food items like a box of hand-dipped chocolates, home-baked cookies for a year, and a gift certificate for a specialty cake at the local bakery.
  4. Gift certificates to local restaurants, coffee shops, and stores.
  5. Signed sports items from your area’s professional football, basketball, soccer, and hockey teams.
  6. Travel packages to exotic locales and weekend getaways at nearby beach and ski condos. Need some ideas? Check out our no-risk auction items listed on Winspire.
  7. Once in a lifetime experiences like lunch with the mayor, a tour of the local news studio, a cooking lesson from a celebrity chef, or a bowling party with a favorite teacher.
  8. Membership at the health and tennis clubs.
  9. Sell fixed-price tickets to a donor-hosted party, such as a Girls-Only Margarita Party or All-Guys Poker Party. Then also auction off the jobs of bartenders and card dealers.
  10. Bottles and cases of wine. Restrictions vary by state so be sure to check with your state and local authorities.
