In the past when ships ran aground along the Outer Banks, a wreck commissioner was charged with selling what could be salvaged from the vessel.  This vendue, as it was called,  was held on the beach where anyone could bid on the recovered items.  In keeping with this tradition, The Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum presents items for sale (not auction) from its museum gift shop.  You can shop and buy right here on the beach near the wreck of the G.A. Kohler, which ran aground in a hurricane on August 23, 1933. She remained stuck on the beach for 10 years out of reach of the highest tides.  Then, early in World War II, she was burned for salvage of her scrap iron content.
