Fabulous Floridiana, an auction of history

ORLANDO, Fla. — As the Orange County Regional History Center moves forward with plans to renovate, they’ve chosen to auction off their old display pieces instead of throwing them out.

Businessman Peter Drucker once said, “if you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.”

We went to a preview of the History Center's Fabulous Floridiana auction and brought back pictures of a few pieces they're inviting Central Floridians to give a new home.

Model alligators, whimsical wildlife, replicas of the legendary machines that transformed our state from a dense swamp to a national leader in agriculture and tourism.

Giant postcards and model ships, space shuttles and orange crates.

This is a free event, and it’s a must-see for any Floridian with deep roots, even if you don’t plan on buying anything.

The auction is set to open for a final preview on Saturday August 10th at 10:00am before bidding starts at noon.

If you do plan on buying, be assured that all proceeds will benefit programs at the center.

All items are to be sold as-is.
