TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Holiday shoppers still seeking desk chairs
or flat-screen computer monitors might consider browsing at the
Kansas State Surplus Property office in Topeka.

Lori Myers manages the state surplus office, which has a
warehouse of sale items that have been discarded by government
agencies. The goods include outdated computers, unused office
equipment and mass-market artwork that had hung on state office
walls.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the rule on state property is pretty simple: other government agencies have first dibs. After 30 days, items are for sale to the public.

Myers says laptop computers are so popular she had to create a
waiting list. Most of the money from surplus sales goes to
maintaining the state surplus office, which is self-sustaining.
