I’d like to thank April Ambrose for this tip.

If you have never been to Arkansas State Surplus Warehouse, you’re missing out. Located in southwest Little Rock, Arkansas State Surplus Warehouse sells anything and everything that the State of Arkansas does not want. When Eddy and I went there, the warehouse was filled with chairs, desks, filing cabinets, bookcases, electronics and more. In fact, April’s workplace, Viridian USA, bought many of its office furniture from the Warehouse. Go, Viridian USA, for being so green!

The Arkansas State Surplus Warehouse also sells vehicles that the State no longer wants. Looking for a work table? The Warehouse’s got one. Need medical equipment? The Warehouse has a bunch. Eddy and I scored three pallets worth of fairly new law books.  Law books usually cost around $40-115 new. We paid $25 for three pallets worth of them. What a deal!

The Arkansas State Surplus Warehouse is located on 6620 Young Road, Little Rock, AR 72209. It is open to the public the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. It also sells some of its stuff online. For more information, visit www.arstatesurplus.com.

  1. I guess since the state is selling laptop computers for a hundred bucks a pop, that must mean that every school in Arkansas is full-up on computer technology and don’t need any extra help. Would that be a fair to say?

    Otherwise, buy for $100, sell for $300 and make a few extra bucks.

  2. I wouldn’t go that far, Jason. Giving laptops to schools makes $0, whereas selling them to people makes $100 a pop. You know that the State needs all the money it can make to pay lottery personnel 🙂
