Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
Here's another auction for items being sold in bulk. These 12 umbrellas could easily be worth $10-$15 a piece but at the current price of just $15.50 aren't you glad we brought this auction to your attention? Judging from the picture one of the umbrellas looks to be a Burberry but we aren't 100% certain. If it is, that umbrella alone could be worth quite a bit. Auction ends 7/26 so register for full membership access.

Auction ends 7/31 -- Happy bidding!

One For All, and All For One

Pretty In Pink
If you are looking for toys or games for kids, you're in luck. The government auctions off tons of children's merchandise on a weekly basis. Take a look at this toy car for example. We aren't exactly sure why the car is named after the movie of the same name, but at a current bid of $56 and 4 days left to bid, who the heck cares what it's called?! We're absolutely sure your child will love it. Now if only we could figure out a way to fit Molly Ringwald in the passenger seat...

Cuckoo For Coins
When it comes to coins, stamps, and other rare collectibles, the government sells them all. Auctions are held daily and people typically walk away with some amazing deals. Take a look at this coin auction and see what we mean. Now while this auction is technically not over, the reserve has been met and at $182 with only 4 days remaining we're sure you can see why we brought this to your attention. These 9 silver dollars being sold all come from different mints and their years range from 1889 to 1921. What are you waiting for? Register for full access!

We Just Got The Heeby Jeebies...
This butcher's block is up for auction right now and the only reason we felt compelled to tell you about it is because...well...it's just creepy looking! Apparently this item is hot right now and there are already 12 bids on it with a current price of $102.50. Truth be told, we think this item could potentially serve a double purpose. In addition to obviously being a butcher's block we think this could easily be a great prop on the set of the next Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie. Happy bidding guys and ghouls!

WA WA WEE WA!
We at GovernmentAuctions.org have seen many different types of cars go up for auction over the years, but the mere fact of seeing a new Bentley on the auction block is simply stupefying. This jaw-dropping 2005 Bentley Continental GT has a v12 engine, power everything (windows, locks, etc.), and all the other luxurious amenities you would come to expect from a company like Bentley. This is an extended auction so it will actually end sometime at the beginning of next month. The current price tag is a hefty $68,000 but that's peanuts considering the car is easily worth over 100K. Register and get more info on this whip today!

Kodak's Got Nothing On Us...
Right now Montana's Property and Surplus Bureau is auctioning off 100 rolls of Fuji film for a mere fraction of the retail price. Each roll has 24 exposures and is 400 ISO. We all know the cost of film is pricey, even in the digital age, which is exactly why this is a deal no person should miss out on. This auction ends in approximately 5 days so better act fast.

Burn Baby Burn!
Take a look at this Blodgett triple deck oven Model 961-S. Blodgett is one of the premier industrial oven companies out there. This item is perfect for smaller restaurants and of course pizzerias. It runs on natural gas as well. It's about nine years old but still looks amazing (as you can tell from the picture) and the price is currently at $600, which seems reasonable considering Blodgett sells ovens on their site for thousands. Be smart and save money today!

For those of you who don't know, the Blackberry is one of the most addictive mobile devices to ever hit the cell phone market. Those of you already with a Blackberry or similar smart-phone device probably know exactly what we mean. The phone has even been called a "crackberry" by some because of people's addictive nature once it is in their possession. Well now you can finally experience what it's like to own your very own crackberry because the government is auction off not one, but two (in the same auction) this week! The current bid is at $41 and for 2 blackberrys that's an incredible deal. We'll see you in rehab...

WTF Item of the Week
This is our WTF?! item of the week. Truth be told, we initially had no idea what this item is for. We know that it's obviously some sort of industrial machinery but we were clueless as to what purpose it serves. It's only listed as a "Vertical Milling Machine w/ CNC Controller" --and even that had us scratching our heads. But now we know. The starting bid is at -- get this --$2000 (holy mackerel!) so it obviously must be somewhat of a sought-after item for those in the know.

We bet you didn't know that the government auctions off tons of musical instruments each week. This patricular instrument, an electric organ, caught our eye for two reasons: the condition and the price. From the looks of it, this organ can be well over 25 years old (making it a valuable antique) yet it looks to be in amazing condition. The current bid is at $25 with a week left to bid, need we say more?
