Default Airport lost property auctions

Hi
I wonder if someone can tell me anything about how to find info on airport lost property auctions. I rang lost property at MAnchester airport and he thought they did auction off unclaimed items, but had no clue where or when or how to find out!

Hi,

This article gives some links to auctions in the South which I guess aren't very handy for you. They might be able to give you info about northern auctions though.

Not airport property auctions, but a lot of Police forces auction found property which has not been claimed on this site...

Default Bagging Auction Bargains

I was looking for some auctions to try and see if there are any bargains and I remembered a challenge done on the Gadget Show in the last series. I cant post the link as I am still classed as a new user(?) If you go on the Gadget Show website, it is series 16 episode 3 100 challenge segment.

Plus they give some information about Auction houses such as Bumblebee (police auctions) and John Pye Auctions (Bankruptcy, repossessions and clearance). I googled them and they had some items that could be bargains.

Happy Hunting!

Afternoon, just reading this thread and wondered if anyone had info or links to where I may be able to find these auctions please ??

I'm based in Walsall, West Midlands so any auctions close to me or within a 20 mile radius would be great !! Otherwise online bidding is usually available so distance not really a problem...
