If you’ve ever wanted to own part of Twitter’s headquarters, the company is auction dozens of memorabilia and supplies from his San Francisco office.

Twitter is cleaning up and looking to unload things like a large Twitter bird statue and a giant “@” sculpture planter. Some of the less interesting items include a projector, iMac screens, and standing desks. There are also several espresso machines and an e-bike charging station.

The online auction opens Jan. 17 and closes the next day, said Heritage Global Partners, the company facilitating the sale. Opening bids for all items range between $25 and $50.

After Elon Musk’s $44 billion Twitter purchase, the billionaire owner took a number of cost-cutting measures. He laid off about half of the company’s staff, which led to a group of former employees suingalleging that the mass layoffs involved multiple violations of labor rights.

“Twitter has seen a massive drop in revenue, due to activist groups pressuring advertisers, although nothing has changed with content moderation and we have done everything we can to appease the activists” , Musk said. in a tweet on November 4.

But HGP President Nick Dove said in an interview with Fortune that anyone who thinks auctioning is part of preserving finances is a “moron”.

“We don’t determine which assets a company doesn’t need,” Dove told CNN. “Just as a real estate broker does not determine which houses or buildings his client should sell.”
