D23 Expo 2013: Silent Auction

I attend the D23 Expos for the presentations and panels, but for many, it’s all about the shopping.   The Dream Store, Disney Store, and Mickey’s of Glendale are some of the top shopping destinations, and it’s not unusual for there to be lines outside the shopping venues that rival anything across the street at the parks.

While many of the shopping venues have limited edition merchandise, if you’re looking for a truly one-of-kind item, then the silent auction is the place to look.    While not everything in the auction is unique, or even rare, there are a few items that you aren’t going to find anywhere else.

Here, with minimal commentary, is a selection of items that were available for purchase at this year’s silent auction.    Several of the items were used in the parks or were part of displays at Disney Stores – you might recognize some of them if you’re a frequent visitor to the parks or your local Disney Store.

About the only one I was tempted to bid on … but I heard it went for over $10,000, so I certainly would not have been the winner.
