Auction Planning Store

These hand-picked items from our affiliate partners are sure to simplify your auction planning while making your event look classy & professional.

*We have used these specific LED lights to help light up the auction items and they worked amazing. We put one spotlight in-between every two auction items. The light also helps to create more lighting for the bid sheets. These lights are must haves for every auction, especially auctions with dim lighting!

Does your auction have a theme? We always recommend making it more fun by having a great theme with fun decorations, music, drinks and activities. For inspiration check out our many party themes and see exactly how to “get the look” for each theme.
