Government Surplus Auctions - A Whole New Source of Vintage Finds

In the course of doing research for some freelance work, I stumbled on the wonderful world of government surplus auctions and just had to share!

Sites like Public Surplus list all kinds of cool and funky treasures for the home decorator.  Admittedly, a lot of it is downright weird, and it can take some time to sort through it all.  But look at the treasures you can turn up!

This could be kind of cool in a dining room, if you took off the tag and straightened up that shelf.  Current bid?  $3.75, going up in twenty five cent increments!

Current price on this one?  A BUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the perfect chaise for my bay window.  If only I lived in Maryland!


Just a word of caution.  This isn't eBay.  The sellers don't deliver.  Be sure you're within range of where the stuff is being sold  so you can easily pick up your vintage treasures.
