45124-165. I figure if you’re one person trying to operate a giant stainless steel cart by yourself bumpers can’t hurt. I nearly laid waste to countless people just pulling this thing out for a photo; thank goodness they all bounced off the bumpers. Measures 2’ x 62” x 54”H.
47348-26. This gorgeously-angular chair is in almost pristine condition but for a single small round ¼” cigarette burn hole in the seat that we like to think came from Peggy Olson after she’d had the best idea ever, circa late ‘60s/ early ‘70s as the head of her own firm.
As we’ve got so many chairs now that we need to free up some real estate, many of them have been price-slashed to just five bucks! This, of course, prompted resident wiseacre, Matthew (pictured here with his mysterious twin) to create what we’ll call The Chair-brained Comedy Stylings of Matthew Chairmartin. To wit: “If UW Surplus were an ice cream flavor, what flavor would it be? Very Chairy.” “What did Chris Hansen say when he worked at UW Surplus? Why don’t you have a seat over there?” Ba-dum-bum. We fear he’s got a million of them. Photo is a random sampling of available items as stock changes regularly. Except Matthew; he’s here a lot.
47384-124. In the fine rustic tradition of Waltons-inspired furniture (kids, ask your folks about John Boy, Mary Ellen, and Ike Godsey) comes this great old wooden spindle chair with the more-comfortable-than-it-sounds butt scoops.
47282-4 and -5. Both of these unusual wood & fabric chairs are in great condition, and at just five bucks each, they’re also the Deals of the Week (our Store supervisor, Scorched-Earth Jeanel, has been on a price-slashing frenzy to free up space for the influx of items we expect to be arriving in the next few months). Features of these chairs include attractively curved wood, rich foliage fabric, chrome accents, and the extra unusual step of covering the grommets & bolts with the rich foliage fabric as well (who does that?).
47371-16, -17, -18, and -30. To describe these chairs by saying, “These are four very pleasing chairs,” would have infuriated Ludwig Wittgenstein, and I’m noting this simply to wink & nod at our philosophy major fans out there; we know you’re out there. But how could you ever really know? These chairs exist in the difficulty of what it is to be, yes, and they’re also bargains. “The limits of my chair are the limits of my world,” or something close to that.
Assorted colors and sizes, with prices ranging from $15 to $50. Photo represents a random sampling of available items as stock changes regularly. Please note: most file cabinets we have do not come with keys. If we receive the cabinet with keys, we tape them to the top or side of the cabinet. If you find a locking cabinet without keys, don’t despair—just tell any locksmith the alphanumeric code around the keyhole, and they can cut a new key for you for a nominal charge. UW Surplus does not accept returns of file cabinets that you thought had keys but did not, so be sure to check first!.
47609-16. You remember literature, don’t you? Lazy Susan sure does, and she isn’t all that lazy, either, because she’s taken all of the literature and left you with this handsome wooden unit. Measures 2’-square x 67”-high.
47188-25, -30, -32, -33, -35, -36, -37, and -39. If Violet Beauregarde had turned into a series of chairs rather than a giant blueberry child-blimp rolled away by Oompa-Loompas, she most certainly would have resembled the very blue chairs you see before you.
47432-79, -78, and -77. Ideal both for folks who have limited space or have an auxiliary computer and/ or printer, these three mobile computer stations are also useful for folks who want a laptop space for when they need to hook it up to a printer (assuming you either don’t plan on being too mobile, or you have the longest power cables ever). I know at least one person who uses cart-tables like these for big pump pots on the top level and cups & napkins on the lower level, but if you want to mix it up and put the napkins & cups on the upper level, you go right ahead. Each station measures approximately 26” x 2’ x 29”H.
47614-3. This most-likely-reeeeeeelly-old wooden cabinet features glass-front doors so you can display books, tchotchkes, things your grandma insists are too nice to be referred to as tchotchkes, and photos of your grandma just in case. Word on the street is that’s a vintage Apple sticker on there, too. Measures 51 x 15 ½ x 73”H.
47703-1. When is small big? This narrow table is a commanding 6-feet long and features sturdy, thick legs & frame, but it will fit in a small space well since it’s just 3-feet wide at its widest point. Measures 6’ x 3’ x 31”H.
47373-31. I’ll admit I used to think ping pong was just some game Midwestern people played in their garages & rec rooms to while away the hours before another episode of Family Feud (I grew up one of those people), but then I saw championship ping pong players blasting balls at each other at warp speed and had a little re-think. By Stiga. No net.
47432-60. When I think of plush rockers I tend to imagine Gene Simmons or Beyoncé (there’s a duet we’d like to request not happen), but this cadet blue fabric & oak-hued wood chair fits the bill nicely, too.
47698-8. Here’s a round laminate-top table that does a surprisingly convincing job of looking like wood. I tell you, they’re getting better & better at that. Still, I’m in no hurry to visit the laminate forest. Measures 3’-diameter x 28”H.

 I’ve looked in each one of these giant wardrobes and, so far anyway, haven’t seen any portals to strange lands, Turkish delight, or Tilda Swinton, so I’d say these are all safe for clothes and whatnot. Your mileage may vary. Each wardrobe measures 35 x 25 x 78”H and features an interior mirror. Plastic wrap in photos is to keep the doors from swinging open during moving.
Rows upon rows of file cabinets line our warehouse. Perfect to help you get organized with your spring cleaning project. We have a very strong selection of file cabinets in a variety of colors and styles. Photo represents a random sampling of available items as stock changes regularly.Please note: most file cabinets we have do not come with keys. If we receive the cabinet with keys, we tape them to the top or side of the cabinet.

UW Surplus does not accept returns of file cabinets that you thought had keys but did not.
46985-12. Back in the not-as-distant-as-you-might-think pre-ADA days of higher education, it was not uncommon to encounter a tiered lecture hall full of these visually-striking but super-non-maneuverable Heywood Wakefield (a.k.a. Hey-Woodite) seats anchored to the floor. Taken individually, they really are rather attractive and certainly emblematic of an age. This model is rendered in chrome and “Cold War Turquoise” and features vintage gum underneath that was probably last chewed when Ronnie Reagan reached for a Jelly Belly.
46196-137. I knew there had to be some design rationale for the odd set-up of the legs on this small table. Turns out it’s meant to slide over the arm of a couch or chair so you can set your drinks and remote controls and smartphones and other nicks-and-nacks on a solid surface rather than having to reach ALL THE WAY OVER to the coffee table or something. Measures 1’ x 20” x 22”H.
47358-16, -17, -18, and -19. While the wood on the arms & legs of these chairs needs some refinishing, the variously-hued blue pastels of the upholstery are all in great condition and are so powerful in their nap-inducing harmony that you might just fall asl … .
47110-3. Here’s a truly gorgeous relic of our not-so-distant past: this adjustable metal & wood drafting table features an attached (and adjustable) lamp as well as two metal drawers! It’s as though someone at Sterling Cooper only just stepped out of the office to have a martini and twelve cigarettes. Measures 4’ x 39” x 4’H (at angle as pictured).

Among the first arrivals from the Lander Hall demolition project are these incredibly nice wood framed bulletin/ tackboards that each feature a carved, Husky-purple-ized “UW” in the top center. The photo shows front and back—boards may be installed using the bevel-boards on their backs or via convention drill/ hook means. Your semi-humble UW Surplus item writer has two of these boards at his desk and can attest they’re extra spiffy.
measures 4’ x 30”H.

We’ve selected the finest wooden bookshelves from the soon-to-be-past-tense McCarty Hall, and they’re sure to go fast! Each oak bookshelf measures 1’ x 30” x 30”H and is sure to make even your trashiest novels look more important.
