Thursday morning, pretty much everything that made up TGI Friday's on West Main in Kalamazoo is going to be auctioned off by, beginning at 8am on Thursday morning, June 15th. Items from restaurant that closed its doors in May will be up for bid. Its a 12 hour auction as the website indicates winning bidders will have to pay for and pickup auction items on Friday, June 16th.

The building will be torn down to make way for a new retail complex.

Going through the auction site's inventory from TGI Friday's, there's a ton of memorabilia, old business signs, a bike with wings and many items like that. There's also a lot of movie posters from the 50's and 60's, and rock star posters.

What really intriguing is that most of the items start with a bid price of $5. Certainly folks in the food service business might be interested in the kitchen hardware, but if you're a pop culture collector, there's a ton of stuff, too.
