Did my first silent auction today and scored one for $201 ;)  10x15 You could see an old 50cc Suzuki 4 wheeler, 2 small scuba tanks  appliance handtrucks, area rugs, some jackets, concrete flower pots, a large mirror,and a toy chest that looked like an old half size gas pump, PS3 box, and several boxes and totes. 
4 wheeler turns out to be a very old model and pull cord is messed up will work on later ???  PS 3 box was empty as I really thought it would be.  BUT
The boxes contained lots of tea pots copper, glass, ceramic, you name it.  Also have some nice International Table works and Johnson Brothers China, misc collectable plates and items that will go well at my booth in Southern Pickers. There is an old 3 toed green glass bowl with gold gilt that I am still researching that may be worth over $200. ;D
Under the jackets was a Chase Authentics Driver Lane Jeff Gordon Winston Cup Drivers jacket in near mint condition  :o  Thought I was on SW for a minute there! This should bring about $100.  Toy box has some die cast collectable cars sold one to a friend with some other items for $60 ::)  She also gave me some advice about the other NASCAR items.  Mirror was very old may be sold for $125.  The area rugs are almost new and will be on Craigslist today still have to research the price. 
The real treasure was my son was with me and had a great time helping ;D

Sounds like a great treasure find and a good price for a silent auction.  One of my best units profit ratio wise was a silent auction that I purchased for a large $26.

Keep up the great work.

Nice score! I love silent auctions. My best score was a silent auction where I bid $120 and won a small 6x6 unit.... and found totes FULL of Brand new Hockey Jerseys.

Just wanted to update the score so far on this one
Jeff Gordon NASCAR collectables $65
Large 8x10 area rug $50
The 4 wheeler is would require a good bit of work and only be worth $50-$75 running so I sold it as is for $20.
Still researching bowl and half of the items in my booth @ Southern Pickers is from this unit.  With the holidays and work around the house I am very happy with my sales so far :)
