Airport to hold auction over the weekend
MIAMI SPRINGS, Fla. (WSVN) -- Get ready to start bidding for bargains at Miami International Airport.
MIA is holding its twice-annual auction of items that have been left behind at the airport. More than 400 items will go to the highest bidder on Saturday, but the star attraction might just be the wheeling-and-dealing auctioneer.
Auctioneer Paul May offered a warm up performance ahead of the auction: "I got a suitcase here, number 605, what am I offered? I got $50, who can give me $60? I got 60. 70? 70. 80? 80. Anybody else? Sold $80 to number six, thank you very much."
The airport holds on to lost items for 60 days before putting them up for auction.
If you want to get in on the action, head on over to building 845 at MIA on Saturday morning, starting at 8:30 a.m.. Admission is $3 for adults, kids 12 and under get in free.
