Garage Sale Quiz Puzzle

Walking along a road near Quiz Master Shop Towers we saw a board at the end of a friend's drive with prices for his garage sale. The items and prices were as follows:

Shovel - £3.50

Lawn Edger - £3

Pressure Washer - £20

Strimmer - £10.50

Children's Bicycle - £15.25

Lawn Mower - £14

We noticed that all but one of the items had been crossed off, but out of politeness we asked how the sale had been going. We were told that the afternoon's takings had been twice the morning's takings, due to the nicer weather bringing out more people.

Then we brought a smile to his face as we bough the last remaining item, which was?

    The total of all items is 66.25
    If the one item remaining is the child’s bike at 15.25 then that means the items sold came to 51.
    The takings in the morning would be 17 and in the afternoon 34.
    Morning- Strimmer, shovel, lawn edger, 10.50, 3 and 3.50
    Afternoon- lawn mower, pressure washer, 14,20.
    The one item remaining is the children’s bicycle.
