$5.00 each!

40684-39, -41, -42, -43, -44, -46, -47, -48, -49, and -50. We’ve got 10 of these matching green fabric chairs with light grey frames. Some of the fabric areas could do with a good spot cleaning, but couldn’t we all.

Mop Buckets & Accessories

$10.00 per set

40672-12, -13, and -14. There’s a mop bucket & accessory designer somewhere who really knows his or her color wheel (or else is just a Denver Broncos fan, and we did a good job of mopping them up).

Hey, Nice Cart!

40732-1. All the other cart users will be jealous of you, tooling around your warehouse or garden or, you know, down the street in your Cadillac of carts (we’re talking DeVille, not Cimarron). This beauty measures 30” x 5’ x 42”H.

Wood Credenza

40471-28. Here’s a sturdy, 4-door wooden credenza with a cherry finish that will look gorgeous with a surface refinishing or deep buff & polish. In the photo you will see plastic wrap around the sides that was applied during moving to prevent the doors from opening. A very nice piece of furniture that just needs a little love to regain its shine—and a steal of a deal for the right person! Measures 21” x 9’ x 29”H.

Big Locking Rolling Tool Cabinet!

40730-1. So you’re wondering if we have a B.L.R.T.C.? Do we ever! In fact, it’s red! That makes it an R.B.L.R.T.C., and you know what that means. Actually, we don’t entirely know what that means, but it’s probably fantastic. Measures 2’ x 5’ x 67”H.

Metal Cart

40641-191. No doubt inspired by the chrome shopping & mail carts of yore, this snazzy metal cart gleams with possibility. Fill it up with Valentines, Tribbles, or your office’s version of Peter O’Toole. Measures approximately 20 x 32 x 37”H.

.25 per piece

It’s always a big step for newly-independent-ish apartment dwellers to get plates that match, isn’t it? Here’s a good way to get a frugal head start! We’ve got several plates and saucers that sure do look like one another, and they’re just .25 each! Party!

Retro Typewriter Tables

$5.00 each!

40698-8 and 40717-42. These identical retro typewriter tables with drop-leaves came in from different departments and have been reunited after all these years. If you’re in the market for an accent piece that is both small and bizarrely heavy, we’ve got you set up. Each table is 26 ½”-high.

Ye Olde Dictionary Stand on Wheels

40767-20. Since you all have dictionaries on your phones now, we guess this is just a weirdly-angled old wood table on wheels. Measures 23 x 14 x 33”H.

Lab Table

product thumbnail image


40747-21. This old-school blacktop wooden lab table features 2 narrow front drawers and measures 30” x 6’ x 30”H. I would totally use this as a dining table, but that might not be everyone’s cup of formaldehyde.

Ovoid Tables

$30.00 each

40671-36 and -37. Perfect for meetings and conferences as well as lunches and dinners and homework and art assignments and garage sales and [everything else that happens with the help of a good table]. Each table measures 3’ x 6’ x 30”H.

Fluke System

product thumbnail image


40570-31. Fluke is the brand name, not our assessment of how it arrived at the Surplus Store. Now, I’m no electronics expert, but I do know that when you plug this thing in it lights up, and that’s enough to entertain me for at least a little while.

Wave Runner!

product thumbnail image


40570-40. Wait, you mean I’ve put on my swim trunks for nothing again? This particular wave runner is by LeCroy, and I’m sure it’s wonderful, but I can’t for the life of me see how it floats.

“Oh captain’s chair, my captain’s chair!”
