Need a little more Pittsburgh flair for your home? How about some memorabilia from Three Rivers Stadium? The Max & Erma’s in Robinson closed and all of the items inside are being auctioned off.
Just about two years ago, I wrote about the sale of Netflix props from Mindhunter and it was one of our most popular stories for the month. This isn’t quite as exciting as the Netflix sale, but it has been fun to browse through all of the Pittsburgh memorabilia.
In addition to the tables, chairs and kitchen equipment, you can bid on all of the decor. There are all kinds of framed Pirates and Steelers memorabilia and some other unique pieces of decor.
How to bid: Bidding is online from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Jan. 19, 2020.
Pick up: All items will need to be picked up between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Jan. 20 and 21 at the restaurant location (130 Andrew Dr, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 15275.)
Here are a few of the Pittsburgh items that caught my eye and there is a ton of restaurant furniture and kitchen equipment for sale in the auction.
