Pier items — both fab and drab — will go on block Tuesday

The items range from artistic (blown glass fish) to kitschy (the dolphin boat tiki hut) to garage-sale-quality items (crusty pots and pans from the Columbia Restaurant).

For those wanting to buy a slice of St. Petersburg's iconic Pier, this is your chance. Absolute Auction of Pinellas Park will auction 391 lots of items from the Pier today beginning at 10 a.m. on the first floor of the building. A preview of items begins at 8 a.m. Several potential buyers showed up for the Monday preview to peruse the offerings, which included an old floor waxer and ice cream coolers.

Among items available, the city is selling benches, umbrellas, trash cans and the concierge desk. Businesses are looking to get rid of display cabinets, kitchen equipment and even some of their dishes.

There are also fryers, icemakers and slush machines (complete with old sno-cone syrup).

Information can be found at bayareaauctionservices.com.

    Les Partners Lounge is an old-school, smoker-friendly cocktail lounge and live music venue tucked away in a nondescript shopping plaza in Island Estates.
