Where can one even begin to explain what’s happening at Twitter HQ right now? With each coming news story, it seems as though things are falling apart at the seams for the San Francisco-based social giant, and a 351-lot-filled auction is the latest proof that might be true.

Moreover, Heritage Global Partners is hosting an online auction featuring various high-end electronics, kitchen appliances, and furnishings directly from Twitter’s corporate office on Market Street. What’s more? Most of these lots start at a mere $50, allowing people to get their hands on home grails like the Eames Plywood Lounge Chair or Knoll Womb Chair for a nearly unbelievable discount — so much for waiting until the tail end of the holiday sales. In addition to these iconic pieces of furniture, appliances up for grabs include La Marzocco’s famed Linea 1 espresso machine, a Rotisol-France Rotisserie, and Blodgett’s full-sized Combi Oven, the latter of which would typically run you well over $50,000. Here, though, bids are starting at $25.

On top of this, the kitchen-appropriate items include premium pizza ovens and towering ice machines, but… where’s the office equipment? Considering Twitter is still one of the world’s largest tech companies by name, there are a plethora of several different monitors, including 55” Google Jamboard displays, Samsung Ergotron media centers, and 60” Sharp LED TVs. And while odds are the final bidding price won’t be as lowly as these starting listings, it’s safe to assume you can come across a hefty price cut on some of these products.
