TV props from Camp TV show go under the hammer

AN AMERICAN television show filmed near Murwillumbah may have been cancelled, but there is an upside for Tweed residents: one mammoth garage sale.

The sale will be held in Murwillumbah, where most of the show was filmed, to sell props used during filming.

Structures built for the show will also be up for sale.

Brett Popplewell, producer of the show by NBC, said while it was disappointing to hear of the show's cancellation, movie and TV buffs would be taken aback at the sheer amount of props up for grabs.

"The next step is for us to come up and sell all of the CAMP paraphernalia. This includes props and wardrobe worn by the cast etc," he said.

"We are also going to get rid of some of our structures at Crams Farm and we are looking for interested parties."

Camp was cancelled due to poor ratings in the US.

Mr Popplewell said while he would prefer to announce the 'dramedy' show's continuation, he was disappointed by NBC's decision.

"I don't know whether you have heard the news as yet, but unfortunately NBC has made the decision not to do series 2 of Camp," he said.

"This was an unexpected decision and it came as a complete shock to us all."

Mr Popplewell took the time to thank the Tweed Shire for their unwavering support during filming, which mostly took place at Crams Farm, Murwillumbah, but also branched out to villages such as Tyalgum.

"Murwillumbah and the whole Tweed Valley supported the show immensely and as I said before the Tweed Council were amazing," he said.

The CAMP sales will be held at 2 Kite Crescent, Murwillumbah on November 8 to 10, from 8.30am to 4.30pm.

Costumes, set pieces, furniture and water sports equipment will be among the items available.
