I have an authentic Louis Vuitton Evening purse with box/bag/tissue paper from original purchase(gift for the wifey). I have 8 different PS3 games also(BB,BK,Soccer,NCAAF). I have a brand new, never been used, still in the box Sony DVD Recorder. We got it at Christmas two christmases ago and have never used the darn thing. Also I have a Michael Jordan Reversable USA/UNC jersey NWT. PM me your email if you are interested in some pics/making some offers. Thx

Went to our first auctions yesterday in the Triangle area. First locale had 4 units up for auction. There were roughly 15-20 people there but only 7 signed up to bid(including me). First unit went for 90$ and the only real item of value was a pretty nice looking dresser. Second unit had two and a half ATV's(all yamaha) with alot of atv gear inside and a couple of older looking trunks. unit went for 225$(atv's need a little work). Unit 3 went for 10$(junk). 4th and final unit looked setup to me. there was a huge samauri style sword placed neatly across two totes at eye level(why not put it on ground or on top of other boxes on ground) and there were two guns that were placed under some luggage so you could just see the butts of each gun....hmmmm I ran into an old friend there who has been doing this for some time and i turned to him and we said "setup" to each other at the same time. This unit also had what looked to be a high-end telescope and a couple yamaha instrument boxes. There were also several other swords and the unit was 10 x 20 and was packed very neatly and went for 450$. My friend and his dad won the atv locker and they told me about another auction in downtown raleigh which the wifey and I decided to check out.

There were a total of 2 units up for auction at the second locale. There were a total of 8 people there with only 4 registered to bid including myself. first unit was garbo and went for 90$ old ratty looking furniture and an old tv 10x10 lkr. The second was a dream.....It was a 5x20 that was packed full of high end tools. you name it, i saw it....EVERYTHING!!! Looks like a small construction company kept all of their tools there. Makita, DeWalt drills, saws, powerwashers, latters. 10-20 large toolboxes which i assume were full as well. I wish i brought more money with me. IMO this was easily a 2000-2500$ unit based only on what i could see and it went for......1320$. Two regulars were going heads up and the lady ran outta money(she basically told me this afterwards). Selling stuff around the house as we speak to raise a little money.....

The first couple of weeks you should just go and look, listen, observe people and the auctioneer.
Your best weapon in the future is to know your competition and the auctioneer. It will also give you a chance to get comfy with the facillities.

that is the plan! ive found that there will also be a few auctions on the following saturday so the 25th will be a great lesson for us both.

Hello all. New to the site and excited to meet some of you and learn a thing or two as well. Would love any and all advice. Im just now starting to email facilities and make contacts. So far only have one response out of 15 or so emails! Looks like it will become easier once I actually find a auction to check out! Good luck to you all!
