Playing Everything Must Go as Liquidation Sale Kicks Off at Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal

There is a fire-sale at Donald Trump's old Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. 

The contents of the once bustling landmark are being cleared out in a liquidation sale, aimed at selling off everything from poker tables, furniture, paintings and even hotel room clothing irons.

Buyers are free to wander the 1,250 guest rooms and suites, where everything has a price tag.

Chandeliers are the most expensive items, with each costing about $35,000 each.

“They were reportedly bought for a quarter of a million dollars each," Don Hayes, the president of National Content Liquidators, told Inside Edition: 

There was a long line to get into the casino Thursday, the first day of the sale, and some lucky people left with artwork for only $25. A table went for $17.

The casino was booming is Trump opened it in 1990. Michael Jackson was present for the grand opening, which was billed as "The Eighth Wonder of the World." 

Bill O'Reilly, then-Inside Edition anchor, interviewed Trump on the big day.

Even 27 years ago, Trump was griping about the press.

"You have a lot of dishonest reporters in my opinion," he said. "You have a lot of dishonest reporters who willingly know they are wrong." 

Trump sold his interest in the Taj Mahal in 2009. Like many businesses in Atlantic City, the casino fell on hard times. It closed its doors for good last year.

The Hard Rock franchise bought it earlier this year, and will pump more than $350 million in renovations into the property. The new hotel and casino under the Hard Rock name is slated to open next summer.
