Sopranos booth auction

The booth where the final scene of “The Sopranos” was shot.

Holsten’s ice cream parlor and restaurant in Bloomfield, where the infamous final scene of “The Sopranos” was shot, is making renovations and auctioning off the booth used in that scene. You know, the place where Tony may have eaten his final onion ring (though no one really knows for sure).

You can see the eBay entry for it HERE.

Holsten’s posted the link on its Facebook page today with the message that read:

The time has come. All good things sometimes need an upgrade. The famous Sporanos [sic] booth is getting a much needed face-lift. We are auctioning off the well endeared booth on eBay starting today. Place your bid on this once in a lifetime chance to personally own “the booth”. Check out our listing here.

Obviously, we aren’t going to change the nostalgia of our beloved shoppe…we aren’t crazy! Just polishing up the place!

(FEB 29 UPDATE: The following has been added to the initial post:

A note from the owners: Please understand that we don’t want to do this. But the integrity of the booths are now compromised. They have been repaired many times and this furniture is over 60 years old. Obviously, we do not want to do this, however it has come to a point where they are structurally not safe anymore as a whole and we need to think about the safety of our patrons first.

Customer safety is a priority for us and should be for our patrons as well. Thank you and we hope you understand!)

The auction has a starting bid of $3,000 and is scheduled to end on March 4.

(MARCH 4 UPDATE: The auction is over. It sold for $82,600.)

We need your help!
