Charity quickly sells out of ‘Breaking Bad' props

Fans of Breaking Bad snapped up memorabilia from the hit television series at a New Mexico thrift store, where the souvenir items sold out in less than two hours, organisers said.

A crowd of prospective buyers gathered in the rain outside the Albuquerque Goodwill store, and some people even slept outside overnight to grab a good place in the long line, said Goodwill Industries of New Mexico spokeswoman Shauna O'Cleireachain.

More than 200 pieces sold in less than two hours, she said. The series, about a high school chemistry teacher turned drug dealer, is set and produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Producers of "Breaking Bad," which concludes this month after five seasons, donated hundreds of props to Goodwill after the store provided furniture and clothing used on the set.
