WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Everything must go, including some kitchen sinks.

The CBS television show “Under the Dome” will be moving out of North Carolina if it’s renewed for a fourth season.

Items from the program went on sale Thursday at the Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington, multiple media outlets report. The sale was to continue Friday and Saturday with prices dropping each day.

Paintings, children’s toys, books, household items, medical supplies, lamps and large furniture were all for sale. There are even a few kitchen sinks up for purchase, set decorator Thurston Edwards said.

Guests, both show fans and yard sale enthusiasts, lined up half an hour before the sale began Thursday, eager to size up the inventory.

The science fiction show is based on the novel by the same name by Stephen King.

News of the sale spread faster than Edwards expected. On Wednesday, a day set aside for cast and crew members to get an early peek at the sale, eager members of the public stopped in early and unannounced. All told, Edwards and a limited staff assisted 200 guests.

Lori Stamm, a Wilmington resident, occasionally worked as a background extra across the show’s three locally filmed seasons. Her big find: a box of monarch butterflies, one particularly striking piece from the show’s history.

“I came here to reminisce and to get some things as mementos,” she told The StarNews of Wilmington (http://bit.ly/1fL5YAs) while holding tight to a shopping cart overflowing with finds. “This is the ultimate yard sale.”
