From pork rinds to pocket knives, surplus centers see it all

The Associated Press

CONCORD — In the market for a crate of Boston and Harvard sweatshirts and baby onesies or suitcases full of pork rinds, pink hammers or sculptors' hammers? Seek out your nearest state surplus store, where many airports nationwide send their unclaimed and confiscated items.

New Hampshire's state surplus division has agreements with airports in Boston, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Hampshire to pick up everything from box loads of pocket knives and scissors to unclaimed luggage.

Items at the surplus warehouse in Concord earlier this month included a "hoverboard," a walker with handbrakes and an impressive collection of snow globes.

The warehouse is open to the public on Mondays and manager John Supry says buyers line up at the door to be first inside.

The state sees about $700,000 in surplus sales annually.
