Storage Auctions "In The News" / 500K in Pirate treasure
« on: November 14, 2011, 12:18:22 PM »
Be prepared for the new wave of storage buyers. Just saw on TV at lunch (either FOx news or CNN, can't remember) a story about someone who found 500K in old gold and silver "pirate" treasure in a plastic tote in a storage unit. The auctioneers from Stroage Wars were on there tellilng the story. They apparently auctioned off the unit. Same people bought 2 units: one for $1100 and one for $600 and the 500K in gold and silver was in one of them. As soon as this story gets more airplay, another round of get rich quick fortune hunters will be back out.
Just when things were starting to settle down a little.

The Treasure Chest / Got a 5x10

Bought my first unit in 3 months today. It is a packed 5x10. Only things I could see from the door where an old dryer, a 27 inch tv a 17inch tv and a couch turned on the end and a few small bags blocking the view. This was a unit with the tiny house size doot on it so it should be interesting to get the stuff out.
I don't hold out much hope of a score but I only paid $110 for the unit and feel certain I will at least break even. If there is anything good hidden in the back, that will be even better.
I hope to get it emptied out tonight. I will report back tomorrow.
