Used Rose, a Perth store that sells used furniture, decided to auction the unique chair after it & # 39; received an overwhelming amount of interest online & # 39 ;.
Bidders are encouraged to call the second-hand store or to send a message on Facebook to participate in the auction.
"We accept offers until 12:00 on Friday, October 25, and shortly thereafter the highest bidder will be contacted – remember that all proceeds go to charity!" Used Rose said.
The money raised is donated to the Cancer Council in Western Australia.
Social media users who share the Facebook post also have a chance of winning a box of Emu Export.
& # 39; Just share this message to participate. The winner will be chosen at random and will be contacted as soon as the auction is closed. Get sharing and good luck! & # 39; said the store.
Second Hand Rose, a Perth store that sells second-hand furniture, decided to auction the unique chair after receiving an overwhelming amount of interest online & # 39;
Savannah Lawrence, of Second Hand Rose, told Daily Mail Australia that the store had four offers on Friday afternoon. The first bid was $ 150 before it was scaled up to $ 400.
& # 39; The reactions are getting on [on Facebook] … So far we have had a great response & # 39 ;, she said.
Mrs. Lawrence said the family-run thrift store bought the chair after it & # 39; moved from one warehouse to another & # 39; has bounced.
It was initially made by a group of about 10 men who mostly built creations from Emu Export cans for their Australia Day celebration, she said.
Mrs. Lawrence said the group has collected 400 cans & # 39; & # 39; for the establishment. One of the men works as a carpenter and was able to manufacture the creation from wood.
The Facebook message has been shared more than 100 times, with commentators praising the quirky fundraising idea.
& # 39; A noble cause in its own unique way. Very commendable and funny to boot, & a person said.
& # 39; This is cool. My brother and his friends made a two-seater sofa and matching footstool. I hope you get a lot for it. Well done, & another one said.
The throne was also described as a & # 39; good seat for the pub & # 39; and a & # 39; good birthday gift & # 39 ;.
