Last week I noticed that MGM was auctioning items from CityCenter and was stoked to find there there were some useful items. I’m still furnishing my new apartment and in the market for a chair for my bedroom and a couple of end tables for the living room. While these are *wants* and not *needs* they are things I’d like to finish out my joint. After starting with ice buckets and such the auction turned to more useful items (for me).
Unfortunately, I didn’t pull the trigger on the chairs I liked but I had a lot of fun watching and listening to the auction. I was actually more caught up in it than I thought. It didn’t help that I had my hootsuite open and there were about 10 or so people I follow equally caught up in the auction.
All in all this was fun for me and it was a good way for MGM to shed some of it’s, relatively, old CityCenter furnishings. If you’re ever in the market for new things I would recommend checking out local hotels for auction and leftover sales items.
