Hi Buzzers! My son's Boy Scout troop is begging for auction items. What value would you place on 3 dozen of Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles? I'm working on the certificate now. I appreciate your suggestions! I'm thinking time plus ingredients, but I'd love to hear your estimate. TIA!

I am not sure but 3 dozen of one type of cookie is a lot. You might get more interest and a higher price if you did 3 different cookies with a dozen each.

Our church recently had a cookie fund drive and we sold them $3.00 per dozen.

This was at least seven years ago, but price would probably be similar. I was helping a big volunteer faith-based organization w/ fundraisers for a few years. I made large corn flake candy wreaths and trees (both decorated w/ M&M's). I made two or three out of batches. They wanted me to price them. I tried $6 and $8 and could not believe how quickly they sold. Maybe you could think of some object that would represent Boy Scouts.

Thanks! I put the starting bid at $12, so we'll see what happens on Saturday.

Johanna, when I started w/ my suggestion it was only to give my reference point. Then I forgot and gave an item idea too. Good luck w/ the sale!
