Silent Auction idea: Post Auction Sale

The silent auction is done, all payments have been collected, but you have a handful of items that just did not sell. What do you do?

While some may feel the best course of action is to simply return the unsold items or donate them to another cause, a great option is to open up a mini-auction. You don't want to insult donors by returning an item, or make them feel that their gift was not appreciated, and it is likely that the item was just in the "wrong place at the wrong time." 

We've found that by offering these items for bidding online- and alerting your attendees and supporters of this new opportunity - that what might have been a deadend can turn into cash for your worthy cause. Often the item was overlooked during the evening or the timing may have just been off. Give your supporters an additional opportunity to bid. This is easy to do with Pearl Bids!
