With a crowd that many local sporting events would struggle to match, the Orange Live Auction of household and work goods ranging from TVs and fridges to chainsaws and furniture was a frantic affair on Sunday morning.
About 200 items were eagerly snapped up by bidders at the Macquarie Auction Group’s warehouse.
Wine went from $3 a bottle, 24 Crown Lager beers made $35 while remote control helicopters fetched $60-$75.
The goods were a mix of items from the police, liquidators and factory seconds.
Auctioneer Scott Burns said they had 140 registered bidders who bought goods to the total retail value of about $200,000.
The auctions are held every month in Orange.
