Next week, the Town of Woodside will discuss what to do with some of the housing fixtures salvaged from a former home of Apple CEO Steve Jobs.




Jobs bought the Jackling Estate in 1984 and lived there for a decade. He intended to tear down the home and rebuild but because of litigation the house wasn't destroyed until shortly before his death.




Among the 150 items now in the town's possession are a silver-plated ice-tea spoon, a thermostat (circa 1925), and a chandelier. In all, the items have been appraised at $30,285.



Steve Jobs, cofounder and CEO of Apple, could boast legions of faithful fans and disciples across the globe, referred to frequently as "Apple fan boys."
Will any of them be willing to bid on their guru's old toilet, wall sconces, door handles, chandelier or silver-plated ice-tea spoon? Those are just a few of the items salvaged by the Town of Woodside, Calif. from Jobs' former home there, known as the Jackling Estate.

He intended to tear it down and rebuild on the land, but a group of local preservationists launched a court fight to save the Spanish Colonial style mansion which was built in 1925 for a copper-mining magnate.
