Since entering quarantine five months ago, we've all had time to do some (probably) much needed spring cleaning, and Third Man Records is selling off some of its treasures during an online "garage sale" auction.
Comprising 104 lots, the auction features everything from a guitar signed by Wanda Jackson to the record label's old couch. But some of the most notable items are the iconic candy-striped drum kit from The White Stripes' "Hardest Button to Button" music video; a prop door from a Dead Weather video; and a guitar and shoes from Jack White's "Over and Over and Over" video, giving fans the opportunity to "walk a mile in the man's shoes...literally."
"Third Man Records is proud to disperse pieces of its history into the world via an online garage sale/auction featuring guitars, amplifiers, personal items, notes, stage equipment, and other one-of-a-kind items from the label's archives and owner Jack White's musical career and collection," the auction description reads. "A portion of proceeds will go to benefit John Peel Centre for Creative Arts, Gideon's Army, and the Detroit Phoenix Center."
The auction kicks off at 9am CST on August 26 and goes until August 30 at 9pm. See what's up for grabs and place your bids here.
