If you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of airline history – or possibly even an airplane lavatory toilet – here’s your chance.

Each month, Delta Air Lines hosts a surplus sale at its museum near the Atlanta airport, its main hub for flights.

Eager flight enthusiasts are able to have their pick of everything from airline cutlery and lapel pins to service carts and lounge seats. There are even plane parts, like tail cones, for sale, too.

The airline recently shared photos of some of the items for sale with Business Insider. Here are some of our favorites:


The sale takes place on the second Friday of each month.

Some of the items in the multitudes include usual suspects like cutlery and plates, which miraculously have survived hundreds of meal services without breaking.

These forks might be some of the cheapest you could buy to stock your kitchen.

Maybe a casserole dish to add to your oeuvre, too?

Or, depending on how much cash you have on hand, an airplane propeller that will only set you back a few thousand.

And yes, as promised, the lavatory toilets.

Even bricks from the original Delta headquarters.

There’s no way these old lounge seats have any support left. But if your living room has a retro theme, they might add to the ambiance.

Seats from actual airplanes, on the other hand, might be the best addition to a plane lover’s home that you could buy.

You’ll definitely need some reading material while relaxing in that new chair.

All of these items might start to add up — but a new overhead storage bin could easily fix that.

When you run out of storage space, maybe it’s time to redecorate the walls with vintage Delta memorabilia.

Or maybe a new clock?

And these retro winged ones, too.
