Our local fire department is a volunteer fire department in need of new turn-out gear and a new tanker truck. They are holding a fundraiser in March. It is a spaghetti dinner and basket auction. Different groups and individuals are showing their support by donating auction "baskets". When I was first approached about this a month ago, I immediately knew what I wanted to do. But last night, I had a dream that I did something totally different. Now, I am torn. I have three ideas and would like your opinion on which you think would bring the best price at an auction.
Idea #1 - Movie Night Basket
I would purchase some all time classics or recent releases on DVD. I would fill the basket with 4 or 5 movies, microwave popcorn, movie size candy and several bottles of soft drinks.
Idea #2 - Travel Basket
I would use a 31 Organizing Tote (like the one above without a monogram) to fill it with travel related items to use in the car. My idea was to put a travel pillow, fleece travel blanket, a couple of travel mugs in the pockets, Germ-X, tissues, small first aid kit, etc. Things you would want to have handy in the car while you travel.
Item #3 - Craft Basket
A basket with yarn, crochet hooks, knitting needles, a few patterns, a few quarter rounds of material. Just basic craft supplies that any crafter would enjoy.
Please let me know your thoughts on which basket would bring the most at the auction.
