Have you ever wanted to buy furniture from a decommissioned U.S. post office, glass-doored wall cabinets from a high school science lab, or linoleum-lined drafting tables from a long-gone architecture office? Or maybe you're looking for vintage furniture in bulk, like 40 computer desks from the '80s, a dozen butcher-block worktables or a lot of 20 round wooden tabletops?
GovDeals.com is a "liquidity services marketplace," i.e. the place where you can find all of the stuff above and tons of other things you could not imagine a citizen having access to. As more and more government agencies get the axe, everything they had goes up on the auction block. And we mean everything--decommissioned emergency services equipment, old firehoses, school buses, playgrounds, lab equipment, lighting fixtures, vending machines, welding tools, and even confiscated vehicles that happened to be on the police lot at the wrong time, like this 1967 Lincoln Continental that's currently up to six grand.
This being a government-run website, the photos suck and the design is horrible. But if you want to buy any of the aforementioned stuff, or one to thirteen fire trucks or a freaking self-elevating mobile police observation platform, this is the site for you.
