Autumn Auction Items
By: Kip Toner ~ 8/18/2009

Summer is finally here, bright and beautiful, and fall is just around the corner.  As you plan for your auction this coming year, consider all of the acquisitions ideas that can come from the season itself.  The excitement of “back to school,” football games and other sports, the autumn harvests; all of these can provide inspiration for your renewed acquisitions efforts. Here are some item ideas inspired by the coming season:


            Football game tickets and packages

            Apple picking outing

            Vineyard tour

            Day in the pumpkin patch

            Thanksgiving Dinners

            Pies every month for a year

            Theatre and symphony tickets

            Operate farm equipment during a harvest

            Local weekend getaways
