You don't have to fork over $44 billion like Elon Musk to get a piece of the company.

Forget eBay. If you're in the market for office furniture, kitchen ware or a slice of social media memorabilia, this sale's for you. Twitter quietly launched an online auction on Tuesday to unload items from its San Francisco headquarters, but the event ends today. Hosted by Heritage Global Partners, the sale includes "surplus corporate assets" like whiteboards, tables, chairs, espresso machines, pizza ovens, bike charging stations and this neon Twitter bird light that has current bids over $35,000. The auction began on Tuesday at 7 a.m. PT (10 a.m. ET) and ends Wednesday at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET).

More than 600 lots are up for auction, with highlights including Twitter keepsakes like a statue of the brand's famous bird logo. Shades of blue (the company's signature color) are featured in some of the furniture pieces. Bids range from $150 to the aforementioned $35,000, and they keep climbing. 

Following Elon Musk's purchase of the company in October, Twitter has experienced a wave of layoffs, resignations and cost-cutting. Back in November, Musk put an end to remote work and said free lunches for workers at the San Francisco office were over. That could account for the large amount of commercial kitchen equipment on the auction block, including kegerators, refrigerators, ranges, grills and slicers. 

Interested buyers should note that all sale items are as-is, and if you win a bid, you're responsible for your own pickup and shipping arrangements. 

Twitter didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
