The annual Vancouver Police recovered goods auction returns this year with a number of peculiar items up for grabs.
The auction contains items that have not been claimed for the past six months, offered at a fraction of their original value.
This year, there’s even a stainless steel double kitchen sink up for purchase.
The auction also wouldn’t be complete if there wasn’t a number of stolen bikes up for grabs — and this year is no different.
There are over 300 lots, featuring bike brands include Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, Santa Cruz and Giant. Racing, mountain, road, hybrid, cruise and BMX bikes are all up for grabs. There’s even a vintage penny farthing bike (decorative, not rideable).
Also up for grabs is over 120 pieces of recovered jewellery featuring a lot of gold and diamonds, including one 14-karat white gold diamond-set dress ring with a total diamond weight of 2.50 karats valued at $4,900.
Outdoor enthusiasts will also find a wide array of camping and fishing gear, ski and snowboard equipment and other sporting goods, and the auction will also feature tools, electronics, instruments, shoes and purses, and even children’s toys.
With a stamp collection and assortment of hockey cards up for auction, there really is something for everyone.
There will be free public previews of the available items on Thursday, May 2 and Friday, May 3 from 12 to 6 pm.
The auction itself takes place on Saturday, May 4, from 9 am to 4 pm (doors open at 8 am, bikes will be auctioned off first). Registration is $10 per person with photo ID required to register.
