Darigold Building Surplus Sale Set For May 12, 2011 At The Building

Tuesday, May 3, 2011


Looking for a bio-hazard refrigerator? How about a toilet, still in the box? Or some mouse pads?
A potpourri of items of varying value and utility will be for sale Thursday, May 12 as Clatsop County clears out the Darigold Building in downtown Astoria in preparation for its demolition.
The building at Ninth and Duane streets has served as storage space for the county for several years, and has accumulated a variety of used office equipment and furniture such as desks and filing cabinets, as well as assorted oddities – including an antique toilet paper holder, and even two animal skulls – that the county is offering for sale to the public.
The sale runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Darigold Building. Sales are for cash only or checks from established businesses.
A complete list of all 200-plus items for sale is available on the Clatsop County website,
The Board of Commissioners sold the Darigold Building in February to Coastal Family Health Center, which plans to build a three-story, 40,000-square-foot building for its own clinic as well as office space for local non-profit social service agencies.
Hazardous materials such as asbestos will be removed from the structure prior to the demolition, which will likely occur in mid-June. Once cleared, the site will serve as temporary parking space until construction on the new facility begins.
