Built in the 1920s as High Point, North Carolina's "Bureau of Information," this 36-foot-tall The Goddard-Townsend style dresser/building represents the area's furniture and hosiery industries (note the socks).
It is considered the world's largest freestanding chest of drawers, though down the street an 80-foot-tall bureau was created a few years back as a building's facade.
Now, for a mere $235K, this unusual High Point icon -- a commercial property -- could be yours.

TIL: Los Angeles pizzeria chain Big Mama's and Papa's sells a pizza that feeds 50 to 70 people. Their creation is called the "Giant Sicilian" and it boasts the title of world's "largest pizza commercially available" with Guinness World Records.
Is this enough pizza? #HappyLaborDay #BMPP Most of our locations will be operating with normal business hours 🇺🇸️ #labordayweekend #happy #food #eat #pizza #instapizza #instafood #instagood #🇺🇸
It's a square 54 inches by 54 inches (for comparison, the average ten-year-old girl is 54 inches tall) and is priced starting at $249.99.
YouTube commenter NOT BASIC points out that it's not a great deal, at least from a financial standpoint:
This is a bad deal if you think about it (pies)*(slices) = 200 slices then compare price
Domino's large 7.99 carryout deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices = 199.75+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 3 toppings!
Pizza Hut large 7.99 carryout deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices = 199.75+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 2 toppings!
Papa Johns 9.99 Any Pan Pizza (20)*(10) = 200 slices = 199.80+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 5 toppings!
Little Caesars 5.00 hot n ready deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices 125 + Tax < 249.99 *Pepperoni or cheese.
I could technically get 400 slices or 50 pepperoni pizzas from Little Caesars for the price of this meaning its double the value!
But, from a giant novelty pizza standpoint, it might just be the best deal around. Read the rest
