“My favorite is Charity Bids. They’re my company of choice. They have very, very, very unique experiences on their website. They have meet and greets on the set of Modern Family, they have Taylor Swift tickets. They have very unique packages. Most of the other consignment auction packages- they have fairly common packages. And I only recommend using consignment items for unique, amazing, ridiculous packages that you couldn’t get anywhere else. That’s why I prefer Charity Bids.”
