The state of Pennsylvania is auctioning off 14 pounds of assorted knives, 12 pounds of scissors, and six pounds of reading glasses in bulk at deep discount prices. That’s according to postings on GovDeals, a website where government agencies sell off surplus inventoryÑincluding property confiscated from travelers by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Twitter user Cliff Jerrison shared a series of screenshots of various listings from GovDeals, which include some truly bizarre deals on bulk items. “I found the website where the TSA sells your stuff,” he wrote. The listings advertise approximately 12 pounds of scissors starting at $12, and 11 pounds of assorted box cutters and knives starting at $20. Both listed the Pennsylvania Federal Surplus Property as the seller, but the items are described as “The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Sale of TSA Property.”
