Minnesota Center for Photography sells some cool stuff

It was a sad day when Minnesota Center for Photography closed its doors late last month. Now you can take a piece of it home this weekend at their liquidation sale.

Those looking to snap up cheap photography equipment and computers are out of luck. Computer gear is being returned to the company that leased the electronics and darkroom equipment most likely will be traveling to the University of Minnesota in hopes of keeping it available to adult photographers around the Twin Cities.

The good news is that there’s still a lot deals to be had at MCP. Some of the items listed include their library of books, from periodicals to MCP publications. Some rare books will be at half price, as well as some cheapie prints at $1 a pop. Those looking to add to their menagerie of furniture and home entertainment items will find chairs, desks, book shelves, filing cabinets, martini glasses—even an espresso machine—for sale. Looking for something… weird? They have a podium, slide and digital projectors, and a big metal tub. Think of the strange parties you could throw with any combination of these things!

Minnesota Center for Photography is located at 165 NE 13th Ave. in Minneapolis. The hours of the sale are Friday from noon to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and if there’s still stuff, Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with items being additionally halved throughout the day.
