Standout consignment items can be helpful to fill out your auction and provide a few larger items to attract people's attention. Keep in mind, however, that people generally come with a fixed amount of money to spend. If someone buys a $100 item, they will feel like they have donated $100 to the PTO. If the item is on consignment, however, you might only net $25. Bottom line: Consignment items can work well, but use them judiciously. Otherwise your bottom line might not end up like you hoped.
