Photos: Which Shotgun Willie's strip club auction items sold for the most money?
Earlier this week, we told you about how legendary Glendale strip club Shotgun Willie's was auctioning off some of its unwanted items in the wake of its move to a brand new building right next door to the old one. The items up for bid included light-up dance stages complete with poles and knee pads, mirrors etched with the Shotgun Willie's logo, strobe lights, kitchen equipment, a black vinyl couch ringed with pink neon lights and one reportedly unused tampon dispenser.
So which items sold for the most money?
Hint: It wasn't the tampon dispenser, which was inexplicably bundled in with a five-foot round wooden table. The pair sold for $20.
Below, see photos of several of the items in the auction, as well as their description and the price that they sold for. The auction, which was hosted online by Roller Auctions, ended on Monday and the winners have until 4:15 p.m. today to claim their goods.
