It's the annual City Surplus Auction.The highest bidders can go home with items like furniture, lawnmowers, pianos, computers, trailers, former city trucks, and even a dump truck. Most are items no longer needed by the city after making upgrades or items confiscated by police. And sometimes they seem a little unusual. "This time I have a tattoo kit," says Sandra Banks, City of Tulsa surplus coordinator. "I have lots of jewelry. I have a crossbow. I think that may be the first crossbow we've ever had."Some more strange items?A reptile incubator, a large aquarium, and a hardwood gym floor. They'll even have the banners that were used to promote the Conference USA Championship and the Bassmaster Classic up for bids.Last year, the event brought in $1.5 million. The preview is Friday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.The auction starts Saturday morning at 9:30 at 108 North Trenton.
