Ceramic Vase

This attractive ceramic vase features an orange-brown glaze and geometric patterns and is a nice size for a desk otherwise cluttered with paperwork and several months’ worth of sticky notes. You might as well have one little corner for civilization. Measures approximately 6”-high.

Descriminating Four-Legged Customers Choose UW Surplus

You can't put a price on this kind of sophistication & taste

We call him Pupperino, and he’s a four-legged frequent flier at the Surplus Store because: obviously this pooch knows the better establishments of Seattle. Pupperino, we salute you!

Erard Grand Piano

product thumbnail image


42939-1. There’s something very Miss Havisham about this piano—with lovely wood that must have been dazzling when new, and with its classical lyre-styled pedal mount, the grand old era from which it came remains visible despite the nicks and scratches of time. The story of the Erard company is as fascinating as its creations (really, Google it when you can), and if we’re reading the internal numeral correctly, this piece may be from between 1840 – 1875. Serial#: 14833. We also know that the German Schimmel company bought the Erard name in the 20th century.

One of the many benefits of visiting the Surplus Store when it’s rainy: awesome meteorological metaphors like this!

Goat Visitor

Niblets, tin cans, you know . . .

Yeah, so you may have heard that sometimes we have goats show up in the store—typically with our regular customer, Lacia, who is happy to tell you all about her endeavors in the Wide World of Goats.

Taken 12/11/14. Hey, we take our good omens where we find them, and we appreciate a meteorological metaphor for surplus when we see one.

Retro Travel Trunk!

product thumbnail image


43090-31. Max Fischer, Steve Zissou, Gustav H., and Jeff Goldblum enter a room with one old world travel trunk that has brass fittings and leather side handles. No one’s name is on the trunk, and no one seems to be coming for it. Who gets it? Measures 17 x 31 x 20”H

Rolling Beverage Chiller!

product thumbnail image


43031-7. You’ve seen them on the tee-vee, and you’ve seen them on the sidelines, and now you, yes you, can have your very own rolling beverage chiller in an alluring (or alarming) highlighter yellow! You certainly won’t lose it in the crowd. Just add ice! Measures 22”-diameter x 37”-high.

Rolling Old School Chalkboard

product thumbnail image


43100-3. Mr. Chips will forgive us if we draw a small Spock in the bottom corner of the board before today’s lesson as we are totally bummed about Leonard Nimoy. Board measures 6’ x 22” x 81”H.

Samson High Lat Machine

product thumbnail image

$195.00 each (2 available)

41483-19 and -20. One of the highlights of any good high lat machine is being able to say, “Hi, lats!” to the bulging muscles you get from it (say that in a Southern accent for extra fun and confusion).

Samson Humped Leg Curl Machine

product thumbnail image


41483-1. Look at me not making a terrible pun here because folks who use this equipment are much, much bigger than me.

Soda? Pop? Yep, We’ve Got That & More!

product thumbnail image

Drinks priced as listed

Regardless of where you fall on the great pop vs. soda terminology divide (sodapop, anyone?), we’ve now got you covered and then some. Customers have been asking for some type of drinks machine in the Surplus Store—we’ve heard you, and we are now happy to offer a vending machine that offers soda, pop, water, juice, and energy drinks. The vending machine accepts both cash and debit/credit cards. Automatic for the people, yo.

Upright Piano: Baldwin

product thumbnail image


43100-1. And as they say in the immortal Clueless, it’s a total Baldwin. But these days, you have to be careful which one. This one is quite nice. Serial # 345065.

Upright Piano: Hamilton

product thumbnail image


43100-2. I’ve often wondered if the person who invented the upright piano made a fortune. I hope so, and I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall the day that idea struck—“Hey, what if we just turned all this stuff downward?” If nothing else, I hope she or he got free hootch in every old west saloon from here to the Mississippi. Serial # 221029.

Update: While there is some disagreement on the Interwebs, it appears the winner is one John Isaac Hawkins of Philadelphia at the beginning of the 19th century. Bravo!

Vintage Children’s Toys Still New-in-Box!

product thumbnail image

House set: $20.00; Party Ware set: $30.00; Dolls: $10.00 each

Little Tykes Toddle Toy Family House set, Little Tykes Party Ware set, 14” Love Me Baby dolls by Lovee Doll. Okay, I have to admit, I had to look up the Lovee Doll & Toy Company because I couldn’t believe it was real. Not only was it a real company, it STILL is, somewhere in NYC and somehow without its own website, which: interesting. These boxed gems appear to be from the 1970s or ‘80s, and we know some adults who would get a kick out of owning these, which: also interesting.

Vintage Pistol Spotlight & Stand

product thumbnail image


43090-17. True story, when I was a kid my latch-key friends and I would strap on our roller skates and play Ice Capades (kids, ask your folks). If we had known how to get our hands on a snazzy bright blue metal spotlight like this beauty, we probably could have been the next Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner of Mission, Kansas. Marked “Transmatic.”
