I got a unit with some cute stuff! (I added a pic because I really just wanted to see if I could, I couldn't reduce the size before, but I think I figured it out now!) I only paid $100, it was a small apartment unit, but everything was clean and of good quality, no mattress, or dump runs with this one!

It's alright, we can just turn our head sideways.   ;D

I right clicked the picture of the chair and saved it to my desktop. It saved in the right-side up position and not sideways as shown...kind of weird.

nice little room for $100.  Prices in nyc and even junk island are sky rocketing all of a sudden.  noobs/looky loos are out in force and that room would have gone for 600 in a heartbeat

I've been lucky with the small units. I only go to auctions about once a month, try to get along with everyone and not be a unit hoarder or drive up prices so I feel the regulars throw me a bone and let me get the small furniture units for my store at times without bidding me up. There seems to be a wave of newbies often enough, but I find most are just checking it out, or they get buried quick...

Nice avatar, I used to love ALF when I was a kid.

My 13 yr. old son "collects" Alf stuff, has been for about 7 years now! He also collects Beatles memorabilia, vintage Muppets and video games. Thanks to what I do he seems to find something to fulfill one of the collections often enough. (He has Aspergers syndrome so an idea or collection can become a fixation for him)  I was watching Alf recently and had forgotten how funny he was!

That's one of the best things about our business, you come across all kinds of things you and your family want or need, and you get to keep them for free after you sell the other items in the unit. Now, if I could just get my wife to downsize her shoe collection.  ::)
