'It's Not a TOO-mah!!'
We've all seen electronics, cars, boats, jewelry, and many other items up for auction, but if you look hard enough you can find a ton of other things. Take for example, medical equipment. Most of the equipment consists of surplus property taken from hospitals and private practices, and are auctioned off for a fraction of the cost of what was originally paid for it. This medical table (pictured), is a great example. With just 5 days left to bid this item is only at $2.50 -- that's less than the price of a cup of coffee at Starbucks people!

The Coolest Looking Sweeper We've Ever Seen!
When we first saw the auction for this Tennant MDL 355G power sweeper, we weren't really sure what to think. I looks more like something out of the movie Bladerunner than it does a sweeper so we just had to tell you guys about it. Even if you aren't interested in cleaning your neighborhood with this machine, it sure as heck would make an amazing prop for a low-budget Sci-fi movie. Hurry up and bid though because this auction isn't going to be around for much longer. Current bid is at $952 with 2 days remaining.
