“Brides-to-be, wedding planners and boutique owners will not want to miss GSA’s bridal sale,” said Karen Warrior, regional personal property management director for GSA’s Southeast Sunbelt Region. “The wedding collection is a great example of the unique treasures we sell for federal agencies everyday on GSAAuctions.gov.”
The GSA “Down the Aisle” Extravaganza runs 10:30 am (EDT0 June 24, 2015 through noon July 9, 2015. A public preview and inspection will be held in Atlanta on June 24th by appointment only. Visit www.gsa.gov/bridalsalefor more information.
As an executive branch federal agency, GSA helps other agencies dispose of surplus property through its Personal Property Management program . That support extends to agencies like the United States Marshals Service, charged with administering the Department of Justice’s Asset Forfeiture Program. Depending on the nature of the disposal, property may be transferred to other agencies, donated or sold.
