Burn Notice is up for sale!

The Burn Notice fire sale started today, Tuesday and continues tomorrow at the Coconut Grove Expo Center. Just show up and window shop if you like.

It's like a party for Grovites as it seems as if all of Coconut Grove is there now sniffing around for bargains. Most are curious. Many are sad to see the show go and told me they were just being nostalgic, a little early, as the season just ended, but still the same. Michael Westen's car, up for grabs along with others, must be the number one object of desire.

Many folks told me they were interested in Hawaiian shirts for the memories.

Many mentioned this Porsche, too, but I suspect shirts, lamps and chairs are the fastest items to go.

Jay Sugarman, the auction house is selling off everything from clothing to props. Own a piece of Michael Westen's house or maybe even yogurt cup!

Ran into Erika and Burt Korpela from Discovery's tv show, "Shipwreck Men," also filmed right on the same waterfront as "Burn Notice."

Tuesday's sale started at 11 am and is expected to run into the night. On Wednesday, the online auction begins at noon eastern time You can login via Sugarman's website. If you want to bid, you'll have to put down a $100 deposit, but you'll get it back if you don't buy anything.

There are thousands of items, it's amazing how few items they reused for episodes. Hundreds of lamps, dozens of living room setting, hundreds of chairs, etc.

I never watched the show, but it was pretty cool to walk around and see all the props.

The Expo Center looked in rough shape. A lot of holes in the ceiling and I saw a bunch of buckets collecting water from the roof leaking. I know many want to save the building, but a ton of money would have to go into the place.
