Greensboro, NC -- This week may be your only chance to take a piece of the historic Chinqua Penn Plantation home, but not without a bidding price.
People have traveled from across the world for the Chinqua Penn Auction at the Greensboro Coliseum.
The plantations owners' have collected items from around the globe dating back to the Great Depression.
However, because of bankruptcy everything, including nearly 1,100 items must go.
Reidsville resident Susan Alcon told WFMY News 2's Chantee Lans that she grew up in the same town of the plantation and was a frequent visitor.
"It's a little sad, but also, really great to see how expensive, everything is being sold," said Alcon.
A single urn sold for $77 thousand on Monday.
Although Piedmont Triad natives are sad to see the items go, Auctioneers said this is a golden opportunity for collectors.
"I've been doing this 40 years and during my 40 years, very seldom have the opportunity to sell this much high quality, rare, one of a kind single-owner collection. It's just a once in a lifetime event," said Iron Horse Auctioneer Thomas McInnis
The auction will start again on Tuesday from 10am until the last item is sold.
