Last Pieces of Last Place on Earth Up for Bid at Seller’s Auction Next Month
They'll host an auction for the two Last Place on Earth signs, hundreds of old albums ranging from 70s rock to disco, and even some fun adult items.
DULUTH, Minn.- Next month you could own an infamous part of Duluth history — the old Last Place on Earth store.
The controversial head shop was shut down after owner Jim Carlson was arrested for willingly selling illegal synthetic drugs, mislabeled as incense and bath salts that were toxic to humans.
After the FBI inspected what was left in storage they sent it to Seller’s Auction in Superior.
On the evening of January 8th, they’ll host an auction for the two Last Place on Earth signs, hundreds of old albums ranging from 70s rock to disco, and more.
“There’s 2 different types of people: there’s the people like me that were never really around for last place on earth that just kind of want to know the history and what happened,” said Christina Greene, co-owner and Business Manager of Seller’s Auction.
“And there’s the people that know the history and they’re kind of looking forward to seeing what’s left of the store and maybe they can buy something to take it home for themselves,” she said.
Doors open at three for the auction.
According to Greene, they’ll start with the more PG items like albums and t-shirts, then after an intermission, move on to selling the more adult items.
