ST. PETERSBURG — More than 600 people arrived at the Pier Tuesday morning for a chance to buy a piece of its history.
A 6-foot-tall, 400-pound anchor that once decorated Bay Breeze clothing store sold for $600 to Clearwater Bait and Tackle on Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard. That's about $1.50 per pound.
The tiki hut from Dolphin Cruises was sold for $375 to Bay Waters Inn at St. Pete Beach.
There were no bidders willing to shell out the $500 minimum bid for the concierge desk, so auctioneer Greg Farner lowered the price.
It sold for $300 to the owners of Bringe Music on First Avenue N in St. Petersburg.
Patti Cook said she went to the auction hoping to snag a wooden barrel for her church's Oktoberfest. She was quickly outbid, however, when it sold for close to $200.
