    Prairie Pants Productions, which was behind the now-defunct beloved Canadian comedy series, says it will hold a set sale from March 25-27 in Regina.

    Over 1,000 lots of props, costumes and set pieces from all six seasons of the series will be up for grabs at Canada Saskatchewan Production Studios.

    Cavan Cunningham, who played the mayor of Dog River on the show, will be at the Saturday sale to serve as auctioneer of 50 choice items.

    Part of the proceeds from the three-day sale will benefit the Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.

    Highlights of the sale include furniture and set pieces from the Ruby coffee shop and the Corner Gas service station.

    Series creator, star and writer Brent Butt says many of the items have been sitting in storage since "Corner Gas" wrapped in April 2009.

    Executive producers have also begun to look at the prospect of dismantling the deteriorating standing set, which sits near the highway in Rouleau, Sask.

    Executive producer Virginia Thompson says they hope to rebuild the standing set one day for potential future "Corner Gas" projects, although they have no definite plans for any projects at this time.

    Sad really, like what happened to The Beachcombers here in BC. They're both such good shows, lol. What were they thinking not continuing them?

    I liked Robson Arms a lot, too. They only did one season of that for some reason.
