This is far from the first auction to be held in the embassy in London, but it might be the only one to have garnered so much attention online.

Doug White stepped in front of a massive steel steam table that was so big, he didn’t know what it was at first. The crowd of two dozen people who had been following him in circles stopped and got into position. Then the bidding began.“Twenty-five thirty,” he called out, in auctioneer patter. “Thirty thirty-five, thirty-five forty, forty forty-five, forty-five fifty, I have fifty, do I have a bid of fifty-five, last call … Sixty!”The bids went higher and higher until the winner came in at $260. “You paid more than you thought you would, didn’t you?” he joked, before he quickly moved onto the next item.
