BSC is selling or auctioning off tons of stuff from campus. Last night was an alumni/family-only preview sale but it's public as of this morning. You do have to pick it up in person though.

There's some legit art (paintings, vases, antique furniture, etc). Think about how a university would accumulate that over a century as purchases by, or gifts to, the school or its president.

There's crazy stuff too - need 15,000 albums (sold in one lot!)? An entire collection of choral sheet music (thousands of books)? How about an actual human skeleton to kick up your Halloween decor? Or maybe one of a dozen or more Steinway grand pianos? A giant panther statue?

One link is direct sale and the other is an auction. Just went public this morning. It's interesting browsing.
