Every single day Father Joe’s Villages/St. Vincent de Paul Villages receive thousands of donations, and it’s been a privilege helping this non-profit auction off all the specialty items. If you’re a first-time visitor or buyer to our site, we help this San Diego-based organization every month with their Specialty Auction so that they can continue to help the homeless community in San Diego County.
In every auction there’s always at least 5-10 items that catch our eye as we enter the descriptions for each lot. This upcoming auction especially has a few lots that deserve to be featured because we certainly don’t want you to miss out on a deal or a rare item that you are on the lookout for…
