The California State and Consumer Services Agency announced Saturday that what officials had dubbed the Great California Garage Sale made more than $1.6 million for the general fund.
More than 7,000 people attended the sale of surplus state property in a Sacramento-area warehouse Friday and Saturday, officials said.
Thousands of unneeded and unclaimed items were offered for sale, including computers, desks, jewelry and a dental chair.
More than 600 used state cars were also offered -- 447 of them online, some signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"This was an excellent event that exceeded our expectations," said Fred Aguiar, secretary of the State and Consumer Services Agency.
