June being wedding season, you or a loved one may require a lacy white gown. Why not shop at the General Services Administration?
On Wednesday, the agency’s Atlanta regional office launched a two-week “Down the Aisle Extravaganza” to auction off 3,000 items perfect for nuptials. The must-go inventory includes wedding gowns, fine jewelry, tuxedos, formal dresses and retail furnishings seized by the U.S. Marshals Service.
The items were reportedly from an Alaska bridal shop that was a criminal front and are now part of GSA’s’s Personal Property Management program used by many agencies.
Available individually or in lots are:
- Wedding gowns with starting bids as low as $46;
- A 3-carat diamond and platinum engagement ring;
- Formal wear for men, women and children;
- A Louis Vuitton travel bag;
- Veils and tiaras;
- Wedding bouquets, stationery and decorations;
- Camera equipment; and,
- Mannequins and wall racks.
Karen Warrior, regional personal property management director for GSA’s Southeast Sunbelt Region, said the “wedding collection is a great example of the unique treasures we sell for federal agencies everyday on GSAAuctions.gov.”
