43583-3. Did you celebrate a bit too much at the last company picnic? Did you have the entire birthday cake? Get back in touch with your inner Adonis & Aphrodite hiking away on this NordicTrack CX938. You can still watch the birthday cake eating channel while working out.
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.
42097-2. Shiny as the patent leather shoes on your nightmare childhood piano teacher, this sleek black Horugel upright piano delivers big sound in a relatively small package. Measures 59” x 2’ x 46”H. Bench (ID# 42068-15) sold separately.
43391-10. Many of you might recognize this player (number 11) being hoisted up by his teammates. It’s Marques Tuiososopo! The real trivia question here is, what football game is this? Some of our staff members here at UW Surplus have a few ideas. Feel free to chime in with your answer on your social media platform of choice. Not like we can tell you whether your answer is right or wrong, but it might be fun to hear your thoughts all the same. Measures 53W x 94H”
43461-14. You can pretty much throw any old bed sheet on the ground and call it a “ground cloth,” but these thick, grey-black numbers we’ve got are the real deal! Although they probably do not make very comfy bed sheets.
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.
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!

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.
43531-74. Measuring 31 x 28 x 43 ½”H, this large wooden shipping crate won’t quite work as that guest bedroom you’d been planning, but it will certainly work as that babysitting time-out holding cell we all know you’ve been imagining. But be sure to add a few holes for ventilation. Actually, maybe just use this for shipping and storage because it’s excellent for those uses.
