New Mexico charity quickly sells out of Breaking Bad props
(Reuters) - Fans of Breaking Bad snapped up memorabilia from the hit television series on Saturday at a New Mexico thrift store, where the souvenir items sold out in less than two hours, organisers said.
A crowd of prospective buyers gathered in the rain outside the Albuquerque Goodwill store, and some people even slept outside overnight to grab a good place in the long line, said Goodwill Industries of New Mexico spokesman Shauna O'Cleireachain.
All in all, more than 200 pieces sold in less than two hours, she said. The series, about a high school chemistry teacher turned drug dealer, is set and produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
"Everybody was super excited," O'Cleireachain said. "They just wanted to own a piece of the show, and they didn't really care what it was." Among the most recognisable items sold were a pair of shoes belonging to the main character, Walter White, that went for US$75 and chemistry lab containers at US$20 apiece, O'Cleireachain said.
