pan am games auction

Huge furniture auction in Toronto for Pan Am Games

This might be the biggest garage sale of all time. Once the Pan Am / Parapan Games wrap up this fall, organizers are already hosting a massive auction to liquidate furniture and appliances used in the Athletes Village.

You better be interested in buying in bulk, though. The auction, which has already started (pick up is post-games), features lots of sofas, night stands, and bean bag chairs that range from 80 to 250. Interpol fans rejoice.

The idea is to raise $2.5 million via the auction. Sporting goods purchased for the games will not, however, be sold off this way. Although there's about $10 million worth of equipment, the plan is to distributed it to community groups and leagues, which is a nice touch.
