I would like storage wars more if it was 100% nitty gritty real. I love to see the trash and the treasure. I would just love to see them sort out the lockers as they really are from start to finish. Life is stranger than fiction after all.

I certainly hope not. I like the whole nutty experience of buying in person.

@Phil - we still do specialty items (textbooks, vintage toys etc) on eBay. Everyday items go in the shop. Try to maximize profits this way. Also building "lots" of like items (one size of kids clothes, a run of an authors books, junk jewelry lot)  is very profitable. Just made $20 on a lot of crap and broken jewelry for re-purposing. It was stuff I normally would toss in the dust bin.

Best prices for bulk buying  When they send a coupon I stock up and the more you buy the cheaper the individual price.

New requirements went into effect this year. You must upload tracking within 1day and you must accept returns. I was always a PS and enjoyed my 20% discount of final value fees, but I lost it when this went into effect. Shipping within 1 day is no problem. Blind returns? No thank you. I mostly sell books and DVD's. Buyer would have 30 days to muck up a product while reading/viewing and ship it back.
I'm so relieved to have a brick and morter store now. eBay has gotten rough.

 I use mine at our shop, but if anyone has extras, pet shelters/rescues can use them to store food and such. Also :2nd hand towels/bedding that's too junky for re-sale is very welcome too.
