LAS VEGAS (AP) — Bargain-hunters carted off $10 wastebaskets and $150 camel lamps Thursday from a liquidation sale at the once-iconic Sahara hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

The casino’s poker room sign sold for $175, while a timeline look at the Sahara’s history was tagged for sale at $450.

The Sahara closed last month after 59 years, as owner SBE Entertainment decided it couldn’t keep the casino open given the tourism economy in Las Vegas.

Items for sale ranged from $25 toilets to a $550 print of actors Cary Grant and Ray Bolger. Booth and table sets from the restaurant cost $1,225.

The historic resort, opened in 1952. Don Rickles and Louis Prima were regulars, while Sonny and Cher and Judy Garland also took the stage in the casino’s showroom.

    Ok, I’ll be brief. Daniel and his partners just unleashed their 4 year, no fail, profit pulling FX system on the public. With the numbers they’ve been pulling down with clockwork consistency, I can’t believe they’re not charging a fortune for this.
    But they’ve decided to price it at a level for regular people like you and me. But it looks like the limited spots are filling up fast, so I need you to jump immediatley from this email over to their page so you don’t miss out. Depending on when you read this it may already be too late.
    Go now.
