Everything must go: Sunrise host Sam Armytage auctions her furniture for up to $30,000 as she settles into married life with husband Richard Lavender

Armytage sells items from the Bondi property which she vacated two years ago, as well as from her former home in Burrawang, NSW.

“Sam offers her coins at great prices because she believes in keeping things spinning for as long as possible and being part of the circular economy,” the auction site states.

Armytage, who will return to screens later this year as a guest host of dating show Seven Farmer Wants a Wife, said: “I wanted the things I had loved living with to continue and have new meaning. lives in new homes.”
