Service Auction Ideas

I realize that I promised this post 2 months ago, but here it finally is. Last November for our midweek Relief Society activity, we organized a Service Auction. It was quite a bit of work, but it was really fun and I thought it turned out great! We started about a month before the auction, telling people about it and encouraging them to come up with ideas for services that they could auction. Here is our list of ideas: Service Donation Ideas for Service Auction: lessons in knitting or crochet Flower arranging Baby blankets Computer lessons Quilting lessons Dance lessons Yard care services Dinner Piano Tuning Scrapbook kits or premade pages 1 hour of cleaning Snow shoveling Massage Cinnamon rolls Cleaning the house 6 free foils from a hair dresser Lessons on how to dye your own hair from a hair dresser A ride to the airport Babysitting Yard Work Car Wash or Detail Sew a Halloween Costume Digital Invite, Announcement, or card Ethnic Dinner Bathroom Cleaning Carpet Cleaning FHE Kit (lesson, treat, etc.) FHE treats for a month Birthday Cake Homemade Jewelry Sewing lesson Voice lesson Piano lesson Christmas present wrapping Set of homemade candles Vinyl family name board Professional family photo Handmade scripture case Hair cut & style rock climbing lessons 4hrs yard work already made crochet or knitted baby items pre-made handcrafted cards or scrapbook pages 2hrs genealogy work "Clean out your fridge" service silk plant cleaning! baseboard cleaning substituting in their primary class homemade ice cream Blog design Here are the Services we had up for auction: Services Up for Auction Sew on scout patches for a year Authentic Mexican Dinner 2 dozen freshly baked dinner rolls-made to order A sink of dishes One free night of babysitting Hem 5 pants or skirts Sewing Lesson Deep clean ALL of the bathrooms in your house 10 scout badges 1 hour sewing lesson Computer/genealogy lesson 3 course dinner Piano lesson Made-to-order Ice Cream Cake Haircut Sew Christmas PJs (winner will provide fabric and pattern) 1 Hour Aerobic Kickboxing Class Made-to-order Pie Blog Lesson We also told the sisters that they could bring items like crafts or treats to auction off. Each Sunday, we passed around a sign-up sheet, so we kind of had an idea of how many things and services there would be to auction off. The next thing we did to prepare was make invitations. We decided that we would make little auction paddles for the invitations and have them bring their paddles that night for bidding at the auction. We used this for the invitation. {Here's a fun tidbit about me: {said in a sarcastic tone} I love doing things the hard way. If there is a simple way to accomplish something, I am not interested.} First I printed them on brown cardstock, then we cut each invitation on my friend's crickut. It took several hours. We used a 4" scalloped circle {I think...I can check if anyone really needs to know...}, then we used old book pages and cut 4" circles {by hand...who knew nobody sold a 4" circle punch?!} and then stamped numbers {1-160} on them with acrylic paints. To assemble them, we used a gluegun to affix them together and add the stick. In retrospect, I would try to make them a touch smaller and punch them with a hand punch or find someone who had a silhouette and knew how to use it...I don't have a silhouette, so I'm not sure, but I think they print and cut don't they? They turned out cute though, and were fun to have for bidding at the auction. On the night of the auction, we had a table at the door where each sister signed in. They wrote their name, paddle number, and phone number on the sheet. Here is the printable. We also had a few extra paddles on hand in case someone didn't get one or forgot theirs. Here are a few of the items that were donated: We served dinner at our Service Auction. Notice the Questionairres under each plate. I found the questions for our questionairre by googling "service auction" and compiling a list. There ended up being A LOT of questions, and if we do this again, I would whittle this list down for sure.

dinner} the auction began! Some things went really fast and had several bidding wars, and others were a little slower, but everything went! The winner of each item auction was awarded this coupon, so they knew who to contact to redeem the services won. We also tried to keep track of who won which items and services with this sheet. Our Service Auction was a great way to share our talents with each other and give of ourselves to others. If you have any questions or comments or would like the non-pdf form of the invitation e-mailed to you so that you can plug in your own info, just let me know. P.S. For those of you who were wondering, I used the font "Harting" for each of my downloadable links.
