Want to see what you missed, check out the 16 pages of Sahara junk on Ebay in the current and completed auctions.. Most isn't selling, and its not bringing that much when it does. Just as I said, the vast majority of sellers live in Vegas.

I'd like to have one of the camel lamps for my office, but I'm not paying $350 for one.

It isn't a suprise. The place has just closed and the market is flooded. Add to that the fact that virtually everything was sold off. People think just anything is going to sell for big bucks. I just wonder what is going to show up on "Pawn Stars" with the owner trying to convince Rick that they have the equivalent to unused tickets for a vegas Elivs show only to be told, "That auction was just up the street from my shop, if I thought I could make money on it then I would have bought it. Come back in 50 years."

Some neat souvineers and I prize the cheques I have. But too many speculators chasing too few collectors.

Especially considering its the Sahara. The Sahara has never been anything, not like Ceasars or The Sands. Why would anybody want a collectible form there is a mystery.

I just read that they sold SEVEN HUNDRED of the Sahara camel lamps at $150 apiece. Good luck unloading them at a profit. They said speculators were buying them in groups of 25. Suckers....
