Garth Auction Vampire Killing Kit

This kit (and two others) was sold at Garth's auction on Labor Day, 2006 in Delaware Ohio. Once again, the Blomberg label figures prominently.

This kit had been sold on eBay just a month before, presumably for a much lower price.

Auction Description:

Here are the descriptions of two lesser-valued kits (pictures unavailable):
