HARRISBURG, Pa., April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Department of General Services today began selling surplus property received from the Transportation Security Administration, or TSA, through an online public auction.

"Online sales of TSA surplus property present a great opportunity for the public to get items they want for a good price, while generating revenue for Pennsylvania," Secretary Sheri Phillips said. "We're excited about getting this program started and being able to offer another service to the public."

Individuals interested in bidding on items can visit www.govdeals.com and search for listings by typing "PA State Surplus" in the keyword search box.

Bid listings will be posted on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays as new property becomes available. Listings will feature various items such as knives, scissors, corkscrews, sunglasses, jewelry, belts and hand tools among other items. Brands include: Leatherman, Swiss Army, Gerber Multi-tools, Craftsman, Gucci, Prada and Oakley.

Through the state's Federal Surplus Program, Pennsylvania is able to receive various items surrendered by airline travelers at TSA security checkpoints. The state receives items from several airports in the Mid-Atlantic region.

All revenue from the items sold goes to the state's general fund.

In addition to online sales, the public is invited to visit the State Surplus Store in the Surplus Distribution Center, 2221 Forster St., Harrisburg, which features a section of TSA surplus property for sale. The store operates Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.
