They aren't required in TN? That's a shock. I live north of Goodlettsville, TN and that's our stomping ground. All the ads we read here say "according to T.C.A. blah blah blah" which led me to believe there was a law.

What part of TN are you from? Or am I wrong in assuming you are from TN.

Does anyone know how Kentucky advertises their auctions, or if they do at all? I've searched through ads dating back to 2008 and there are less than 10 for 5 counties.

Youre not supposed to "party" with your teenage kids and their friends, it's against the law.  ;D

I doubt that there is a great condition jacket and disc combo in the whole stack. Either one is jacked up or the other. If you still want a list I'll do it but it's going to be next week before I can. Daughters sweet 16 this weekend and it starts tomorrow at 9a and ends saturday at midnight so ugh. Will take at least 4 days for me to recover. As I'm getting older my party recovery time has more than doubled what it was in my 20's  ;D

Ok thanks I'll give half a go. I sent off several books to them 2 days ago, 53.00 worth. I just got an email saying that my payment will be processed within 3 days. These were books like text books and one was an older medical textbook that still had the CDROM in the back unopened. They paid 42.00 for that one alone. I'll let you know what the outcome is as far as the money promised and the actual money paid.

Thanks guys!

StorMe, they have no idea. She's had MRI's out the wazoo and nothing shows up. We've done a week long sleep study at Vanderbilt and they couldn't find anything. We even took her to a specialist in Chicago and he said "Sometimes we just don't know."

They started out of the blue, happen out of the blue, and hopefully one day will go away out of the blue.

Evening folks, thought I would take a second to intro myself. I'm Chester and my wife is Toni. We decided to start into this after she got fired from her job due to a siezure condition. She never really needed to work as my income covers everything we really need she just likes to to have something to do and her own money to buy my christmas and birthday gifts without me seeing how much money she really spent lol. Anyway we decided if she was going to work then it would be a series of 1-2 year gigs as her seizures get serious about once every 6 months and she misses about a week due to them. 1 week every 6 months is a big no no to a lot of employers. So I told her listen, why don't you do the storage auction thing? So she took a grand and started hitting the local route. That was about a month ago. So far we have bought three lockers, first one we might break even, 2nd one we sold one thing and paid for the locker +50 to the pocket. Third one we got for 5.00 and I found a place to sell some of the books we got for 53.00 so we are up on that one too. It's not a lot of money but like I said, it's more to keep her occupied.

Since starting we have also read about and started attending estate and other auctions and today we did a serious yard sale circuit and scored hopefully pretty good on it too. Needless to say she is having a blast with it all so far and we are ahead money wise. My favorite part of it all is the research. As I sit here I have several peices of glassware on my desk, a sterling silver salt and pepper carousel and a few peices of china to look for. All in all it's a lot of fun. I just hope it stays that way for a while. I'm sure a few Nashville people read this forum so if you see us say hi. She's usually the only woman at the auctions that doesn't have a dude on her hip lol.

Storage units bombed for us today so we hit some yard sales. Stopped at one and offered 40.00 for the rest of what she had. Got it home and looked closer at this. Started to do some research and couldn't find that green logo for nothing. Then out of the blue I scored a hit on it. A lady has a different peice with that same logo. So I read what her description was and it said that that logo was the first one used by the Carl Schumann company from 1900 to 1927! She linked a site and I went and did some more reading and their experts believe that it easily could date back to 1861!! I've sent them an email with these same pics attached asking if it's possible there are reproduction peices out there or if it's even remotely possible that this could be original. Paid .50 after we averaged out the 40.00 across all the peices.

New here and I haven't seen this mentioned. We bought a unit for 5.00 about a week ago. Got it home and started looking through it. Something I remember Dave H. saying was that books were easy money. So I'm like ok where? Did some research, found and gave it a shot. Ended up selling 7 of the books to them for 53.00! All the rest is gravy! Using the rest of the books for packing material  ;D
