Complete newbie here! We're looking to attend to some storage auctions primarily to buy furniture for ourselves... anyone else in the area?

New to Storage Auctions? / Advice for a looky-lou needing furniture?

I admit it... I am one of those newbies who got interested because of the TV shows and have really enjoyed all the war stories everyone shares here on the boards! Hubby and I are looking for a few pieces of furniture and storage auctions seem like one of the places we might find what we want at a reasonable price. Several of the local facilities will list some of the contents of the units in their ads - so there's a heads up if there's furniture or large appliances - and of course there are always "misc. boxes"! 

I don't mind putting in sweat equity cleaning the unit to get a deal, but we're not really interested in doing this as a business. Two consignment shops in our area that specialize in furniture and home decor, and lots do womens/kids clothing - so I am thinking that if there were any decent items that fit those categories, we could consign them to offset our cost.

Is there a good way to "network" and approach other bidders who might want to resell the other types of items? Or if we don't win a unit but might be interested in just one or two pieces, is there an etiquette in approaching the winner to ask if they are planning to sell it?
