The Virginia Film Office is auctioning props from a show recently filmed in the state
The Virginia Film Office is auctioning off props and set items from "a familiar two-season series" that was recently filmed in Virginia.
Why it matters: Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Virginia film industry, which is in high need right now due to the ongoing writer's strike, the Times-Dispatch reports.
Plus, the auction is your chance to own some of these set items and, since it's an auction, get some new homewares on the cheap.
- Like, super cheap. The opening bid on most items is about $2.
- Of note: The film office and auction site are keeping the show name a secret, but based on the amount of basketball-related items for sale, we're guessing "Swagger."
- Lot items include funky chairs, art, appliances, a taxidermic deer head and one 32-inch-tall stuffed llama.
- Do you need a prop electric chair, gravestone or antique printing press? Because you can find all three.
How it works: Bidders register with the site, enter their starting bid and your max bid between now and then auction closings at the end of the month.
- You win, it's yours, plus a 15% fee to the auction site and 6% state sales tax.
- Pickup is Saturday, Sept. 30 by appointment on Hermitage Road.
