Costumes, props and set pieces from the Calgary-based TV show Wynnona Earp will be up for grabs in an online auction held by Hall’s Auction Services this weekend.
The show’s production company, Seven24 Films, has selected more than 1,300 items from four seasons of the supernatural, queer-positive western show for bidders to choose from.
Kevin King, owner of Hall’s Auction Services, said the items attracted interest from fans known as “Earpers” from around the world.
“It’s an interesting project to take on,” King said. “It is probably one of the projects that received the most international attention. We have registered bidders from Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Ireland and all sorts of countries.
“And Americans are excited about it [too]. I think we now have registrants from 42 or 44 individual states.”
CLOCK | Wynonna Earp fans can bid on these set pieces from the series at a Calgary auction:
Bidders have everything from an Earp homestead mailbox to a 1977 Camaro, with starting bids ranging from $25 to over $1,000.
There are even some more obscure items like a Gummy Potato and a Gummy Bed Pan.
One of the hottest ticket items is a white Stetson hat worn by character Nicole Haught. Bidding on this item started at $100.
“I think it will practically sell out. Seven24 Films really allows the collector market to dictate value [these items have]…they want to get these pieces into the hands of collectors. They want to say thank you to their fan base in a way,” he said.
“The collectors know the stuff better than I do… we get requests all the time and some of them are really touched that they have the opportunity to maybe take some of these things home.”
It is not yet known if the show will return for a fifth season. Set decorator Amber Humphries said it was the fans who fueled the success of the first four seasons.
“The reason we moved on to seasons two, three and four in the first place was because of the fans. I will be grateful for that because the show has always held a special meaning for me,” she said.
Although the show has not yet been renewed for a fifth season, Seven24-Filme posted a message on the auction’s website that read: “The producers of Wynonna Earp wants to assure Earpers that this Hero Items auction is by no means the end of the show.
“We are determined to tell more Wynonna Earp stories and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to put parts of the show in the hands of passionate fans.”
The auction will donate a portion of its proceeds to Skipping Stone and Rainbow Road charities, which focus on helping LGBTQ+ people.
According to Humphries, the auction is a great way to share parts of the show with his dedicated fanbase.
