    Looks like there will be stuff left over after the requests to the folks that initially participated get their stuff.

    William, you should be hearing from Billy soon or he may post on PC what items are left.

    And it looks like there will be more stuff this summer - Tanglewood is phasing more stuff out in favor of LEDs. We think we may have an inside track on hearing about it, and being able to make an offer.

    In any case, I've got 3 arches that are 18' wide and 20' tall that will go over my driveway sitting in my back yard, and need to go back and get one of those "snowflake" arches that went over the main road as you entered. All need to be converted from C9 to something that draws less power!

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    What kind of money did the "big" arches and the snowflake arches sell for ? I am only curious. I don't have any place to put one.
    Thanks,

    Denny,
    We didn't put prices on individual items at the start. There were 8-9 folks that put in $100-200 to just close the deal, and then requested items that we thot we could use and split things up. There are some things that are just too large for a normal house display, but others that will work great. For the amount of stuff that was auctioned off, it was probably worth at least $30K new, possibly more, since there were at least 10 of the metal arches (single pipe) and 4 of the truss style arches with snowflakes on them.

    For the remaining items, I think BJ is going to sell them off individually, or in groups where it makes sense...
