LAS VEGAS (AP) — Now that the Sahara hotel-casino is closed in Las Vegas after 59 years, everything must go.

The owners of the Rat Pack-era casino are planning a liquidation sale of all items inside the property exactly one month after closing the casino’s doors.

Things for sale include the casino’s poker room sign, bedroom furnishings and chandeliers in several shapes and sizes.

The sale set to begin June 16 is being organized by Ohio-based National Content Liquidators, a firm that ran previous liquidation sales for other casinos.

Company spokeswoman Meredith Lunsford says she expects the sale to attract nostalgic fans and commercial buyers interested in things like escalators and restaurant equipment.

Owner SBE Entertainment has not yet detailed its plans for the property on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip.
