Sahara Sale Sign

If you haven't yet had the chance to eyeball the bajillion photos of the Sahara Liquidation sale posted everywhere, we've got a slew of our own, courtesy of VT super reader TwoFours who stopped by the Sahara Liquidation on the second day. Here's his description of the scene on the ground:

The auction let in 50 at a time @ $10 admission per person and you got a SBE half scale shot glass as a souvenir. The buildings were operating on limited power - no AC in the penthouse suite and dark in lots of areas. After seeing the bones of this building it needs to have a meeting with the wrecking ball. A few years back it was in shape to remodel, now there is no hope.

Sad. On to the pix... there are a lot of em. Commentary is mine, not TwoFours.

If only SBE would make their Strip entrance more inviting for pedestrians.

Not excited for "SLS Las Vegas" at all.

The place had great furniture, I'd definitely buy the lamp and palm tree picture.

# 11 means that if something is marked $1.00, you actually pay $1.10 for it.

Some of those pictures reminds me of the old school wheel of fortune. When you got to shop for merchandise after solving a puzzle.

The smaller shot glasses are the same ones I got a few of last summer AKA the $1 kamakaze shots- interestingly enough the same ones I was told were sold out/long gone during the final month of the hotel being open.

eBay is now filthy with camel lamps.

Oh Misnomer..."filthy with camel lamps"...such beautiful language!

I would have been scooping up plates at 3 for a $1.00...I thought about making a run with a camel lamp in December..rats!

#11 is a commission that is going to the 3rd party that is organizing/running the liquidation.
