Some of the items that have been donated to us don’t lend themselves well to a silent auction but they’re great as part of a raffle basket. I spent today “topping” those up with some new purchases. I wrapped it in paw print cello wrap and put a paw print organza bow on top. What do you think?
It certainly got Scout’s attention. He even called his pal Phoebe over to take a look.
The value of all these items is a little over $165.00; to the left is a list of what’s included (click to enlarge). (I love the hanging pet organizer: it lets you store leashes and collars and toys and even has a photograph holder for a picture of your best pal.) The basket includes a very cool dog pillow donated by Even and Odd, a gorgeous collar and double-handed leash and some other items donated by Wagz’n’Wear, a couple of doggy books donated by Simon and Schuster, and all kinds of great stuff.
If not, then we’ll have to buy a roll of tickets to sell at the door and have the draw at the end of the live auction. (Let me know if you want to buy some — or sell some for us !)
I think Scout would like me to buy a few since he doesn’t have any money of his own. He’s still sitting there patiently, waiting and hoping ….
