These days, everyone is probably indulging in a bit more online shopping than they used to. While they might be buying items from Amazon or other online retailers, they may not be aware that there's another place to shop. Canada's government surplus actually has a lot of interesting items for sale, although you'll have to bid on them.
Once you register for an account, you can put in bids on a number of different things, including cars, appliances, and electronics.
The bidding process might make people long for the old days of sitting on eBay, but you probably wouldn't be able to buy a horse on that website.
A Fanboat (With Trailer)
Sure, it might not be a pleasure yacht, but this fanboat would make for some pretty fast and fun rides out on the lake (just make sure you inspect it before heading out on the water).
The perfect thing for the aviation enthusiast. These vintage airline seats were actually used as props in a museum, and with a little touching up, they could make a great historic addition to your living room.
A Pickup Truck
Let's face it: there are always times when we wish we had a truck (or at least knew someone with a truck). With this 2004 Chevy Silverado, you could finally be the person everyone calls when they have to move.
A 58 Inch TV
No matter how much you like your current television, you can always go bigger (which is apparently better). The government of Canada has you covered with this 58 inch Samsung (that'll save you a trip to Best Buy).
Yes, it's true. You can buy a living, breathing horse that was recently retired from the RCMP (provided you have $13,100 available to spend).
This particular horse (named Bently) was part of the Musical Ride program and even performed in front of the Queen.
Fore! Anyone who wants to hit the links without spending an arm and a leg on new equipment could always just pick up this assortment of clubs. It may not be a complete set, but you're bound to find something that works for you.
A Sheet Of $1 Bills
The ideal item for collectors of vintage Canadiana. Now that the nation has moved on to using the loonie, these bills are more of a statement piece and would be great to hang in an office as a reminder to keep chasing those dollars.
If you've got the space for it, there's nothing quite like having an extra fridge. You can use it to store extra food, or just go ahead and keep beer in it like almost everyone with a second fridge does.
A Pair Of Ray-Ban Sunglasses
Why go to Sunglass Hut when you can just buy a sweet pair of shades from the government? Not just any shades either, but genuine Ray-Bans.
It might be too close to winter to use them now, but they'll come in handy next summer!
