47743-73. One of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s most obscure songs was surely “Big Old Rolling Cabinet,” but Ike & Tina did a version that was really scorching. This glass-front version hews close to the original just with less fringe. Measures 21 x 42 x 92”H.
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.
47778-21, -22, -23, -30, -32, and -33. Blue-grey? Cadet-blue? Smoky-light-blue? Whatever you call it, the chairs are in excellent shape, and nothing beats the allure SHINY CHROME when you need a good sit.
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.
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.
47799-1 through -4. These great-looking chairs are, to me anyway (and certainly to my backside), what are called Do Not Linger Chairs—for times when you may have guests but you’re hoping in the nicest way possible that they maybe don’t stay & talk a blue streak because you’ve got stuff to do. #Shade
47738-19. While it does appear to be missing its minivan, this bench seat makes an ideal gaming couch or what one of our regular customers refers to as a “Kentucky porch couch,” with all due respect to the fine folks of the bluegrass state. How many folks can say they have a couch by Dodge?
L – R: 47743-5, 47743-1, 47328-27, 47075-3, 47743-129, 47561-31, and 47743-2. With the onset of summer, departments find they have more time to surplus items such as old wooden desks, for instance. We’ve certainly got a varied selection at present (even more than would fit into this photo), including some notably unique desks such as this one with ornate floral brass fittings and this one made of wood that looks almost like marble cake.
47432-76. What you might call a single-serving size or guest-in-a-pinch. Hey, it definitely beats sleeping on the floor or on your Auntie Mame’s air mattress (yes, we know she’d never have an air mattress).
46111-36. It’s super-extra comfortable, and it’s rendered in mysterious “Dusty Rose,” and, hey, it has an arm on just the one side … that’s like a clue or something. This chair may have been a corner unit from some much-larger sectional, but the corner’s where everybody wants to be anyhow. In great shape!
47328-27. Made from some very nice, thick wood with unusually marbled tones, this impressive desk comes with a glass top (it’s on a cart just to the side so it’s protected in the warehouse). Some surface scratches on the top. Has copper fittings around each leg. Measures 33” x 5’ x 30”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.
47696-8. Calling this lovely piece of furniture a “locker” seems somehow unfair, unless the gyms you’ve visited have much nicer lockers than the ones I’ve visited. Featuring light cherry-colored wood & veneers, an interior cubby level & garment level, and holders for a rack bar, it’s the maybe-more-sophisticated-than-you-deserve alternative to the funky metal bastion of towel-snappers everywhere. And yes, by the way, you do deserve it. Measures 16” x 2’ x 67”H.
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.

If we receive the cabinet with keys, we tape them to the top or side of the cabinet.

46961-83. Here’s a stylish wooden cabinet in a sleek Scandinavian vein that’s simplicity well-rendered. Interior features 2 lidded cable exits for storage of A/V devices. If you love a credenza but haven’t got the room, check out this lovely alternative! Measures 16” x 3’ x 34 ½”H.

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.
SOLD OUT! More will be arriving next Tuesday, June 28th
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.
47743-129. We figure this lovely wooden desk hails from sometime between the 1920s and early 1940s. While it’s possible it was made earlier, most desks form earlier periods tend to have much darker stains, and later desks, well later desks tend to be metal. And while this piece has seen its share of life—a few small nicks—it features some truly beautiful brass floral pulls and fittings. Desk also features two extendable writing surfaces, central slotted drawer, three standard drawers, and one large drawer. Measures 3’ x 66” x 30”H.
