Miami International Airport auction to feature travelers' treasures

Sept. 23, 2009


Sep. 23--Did you leave your cellphone at Miami International Airport? Lose a piece of airline luggage?

Turns out, there will be a chance to get it back Saturday -- if your price is right.

The Miami-Dade County Aviation Department will auction off items from the airport's lost-and-found department at bargain prices starting at 9:30 a.m. Items include luggage, digital cameras, DVD players, even laptop computers.

Bidding will take place on the third floor of building 845 at 5600 NW 36th St. Admission costs $3, and children 11 and younger can enter free. Sales will be cash only, and no refunds will be made.

A 15 percent buyer premium will be included. Attendees can inspect the items -- except for luggage -- from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.
