The General Services Administration is getting into the holiday spirit this season, auctioning off everything from an old helicopter to old jewelry to make an extra buck for taxpayers.
GSA has been shedding some weight by getting rid of excess property in an effort to cut costs. In 2013, GSA generated $97.7 million in sales by selling or transferring 213 of its facilities. According to a blog post by Matthew Burrell, press assistant at GSA, GSA has more than 800 properties moving into the disposal pipeline.
Here are some of the items GSA is auctioning off:
For just a little more than $250,000, you can get a 1984 helicopter aircraft.
Thinking of getting a new hobby in 2014? Or maybe a medical degree is in the near future? Just over $500 can get you a state-of-the-art examination table.
Need some wood to get that holiday fire going? GSA is auctioning off firewood from felled sycamore and pine trees.
Or if you’re looking to get away for the holidays, put a bid down for this item and take a trip down the Potomac or out in the Florida Keys.
For those planning on winning the local baking competition this holiday season, splurge on a $75 mixer.
