Yes most of it was in good condition and had only been used about 3 years. Some animators came by to see if they could buy their old desks. One enterprising gentleman with a warehouse purchased 24 animation tables at $100 each and had sold half by the time the sale was over to people who missed out on the bidding for $250. 16 field disks went for about $170 and sold really quickly. 12 field disks went for between $75 and $30. Swivel desk lamps were $40. HM chairs were more expensive than the desks at around $400 each and up. Some items were damaged and sold in an "as is" condition, but most were relatively intact. Computers were sold as well, MAC, PC, Silicon Graphics stations and Amiga pencil test systems. All With the hard drives wiped, some macs had operating systems but that was it. Software was not listed i the sale--guess most of it was licenced in groups so it couldn't be sold individually. Many office and computer desks and cubicles were for sale. Almost everything sold--took from 10:30 to around 6:30 -- then there was the check out line....
Any other questions about the sale?
