In the market for a luggage carousel or an airport check-in desk for your living room? Well you’re in luck. London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) is auctioning off all of the entire contents from the airport’s old Terminal 1, which closed in June 2015 to make room for the expansion of Terminal 2.

More than 4,000 airport seats, 110 check-in desks, 15 escalators, 11 luggage reclaim carousels, as well as paintings from the 1950s, airport signage, Heathrow memorabilia and other equipment like security cameras and metal detector gates will go under the hammer during the auction on April 21.

Some of the items up for bid are clearly for more industrial buyers like new airports or other large public venues, but there are ample items for aviation enthusiasts looking to own a piece of history.

“We anticipate a broad range of interest,” Daniel Gray, a managing partner at CA Global Partners, the firm handling the selloff, told Sky News. “Some of the contents have significant historic value, and there may even be elements of the furnishing that would appeal to nightclubs or other entertainment venues. Some of the signage in Terminal One is iconic and bound to attract interest from collectors.”

The unprecedented selloff will be held “overlooking The Heathrow Runway in the Aviation Suite at the Thistle London Heathrow Terminal 5 Hotel,” according to CA Global Partners’ website. The auction will also be webcast live when it begins at 11am local time on April 21. Interested bidders can register for the auction now.

Heathrow’s Terminal 1 first opened in 1968 and was later formally opened by Queen Elizabeth II in April 1969. When it opened, the terminal was the biggest short-haul terminal in Western Europe.
