Here's the second half of my pictures from a liquidation.
Read after the jump for more photos from the Sahara's liquidation sale. Everything--and they mean everything--must go.
Here's another shot of the nearly-empty casino, in front of the House of Lords.
Here's Clyde the Camel, who is very old, though no one can say just how old he is. This is why it's important for organizations to maintain archives--so they have an institutional memory. It would be great if someone could definitely say how old Clyde is, and where exactly he came from.
Wanna start a restaurant? You can get a whole kitchen here.
This was a funny little find. I was ransacking the pit stands and I found these still taped to the pull-out tray: instructions on how to correctly shuffle double-deck games and a blackjack basic strategy cheat sheet.
Some very basic workout equipment for sale in the top-floor fitness center:
There are about 1,720 room phones here. Not sure if any did duty as shat phones. Still, you might want to call your friendly telephone sanitizer before using:
Even the custom door pulls are going:
When National Content Liquidators is done with the place, there's basically going to be nothing left but the walls and the plumbing/electrical work inside them. All of the furnishings, bars, signs, escalators, and kitchen stuff--including walk-in refrigerators--will be gone.
Which makes any "quick" remodel and reopen for the property extremely unlikely. If you wanted to reopen any semblance of the property anytime soon, there's no way you'd be selling off a relatively new digital surveillance system or the gaming tables, which are easy to refurbish (just slap a new felt on them), not difficult to store, and much more expensive new than used. After this kind of sale, I can't see much future for the property besides demolition. If it was an architectural gem of a property in a location where implosion was logistically impossible, you could have a thorough renovation, but there's really not going to be much left outside of the walls.
NCL is planning for the sale to last 60 days, so if you're in Vegas any time in the next two months, you've got a good chance of getting something.
