Pittsburg Auctions Off Coal Buckets to Highest Bidder


The artistic coal buckets displayed in downtown Pittsburg now have new places to call home. The auction of the 36 coal buckets was the final wrap up to Little Balkan Days.

The buckets lined Broadway Street in Pittsburg for the past 3 months, but now the buckets go home to the highest bidder. Organizers from Southeast Kansas Arts Fest say the buckets not only add beauty to their new owners lives, but also earns money to plan next year.

"They have weathered the storm pretty well," said Steve Robb, SEK ArtsFest Founder. "They still look like they did when they went out brand new. But its time for them to move on from Broadway to other places. Some of them will be displayed in museums around here. Others are going to be displayed at peoples homes. Others will be in places of business, so they'll still be around Pittsburg."

Robb says they aren't ready to reveal what's ahead for next year's Little Balkan Days, but he says it's going to be bigger and better than the coal buckets.
