(WDAY TV) - West Fargo's week-long equipment auction is being called a surprising success. Nearly 60 items were up for sale, and almost all of them sold.

In all, the auction brought in about 18 thousand dollars. That money will go to the equipment fund. It will be used to buy new equipment, to replace the old that was sold. Organizers say they're surprised by how well the auction did, but they say the silent bidding system may have been the reason for the success.

“No pressure is on anybody, you know, to bid right at the moment. You can sit there and digest what we've got and make a bid on whatever they feel they need to.”

Any items not sold in the auction will be put up for sale again, but they'll be advertised individually.
