We hid unpainted eggs in the snow for fun.

That mere thought is just pure evil! LOL

The Lounge / Happy Easter 2017

Hope everyone had a happy Easter. We hid unpainted eggs in the snow for fun. Kept the kids busy for hours. Just kidding, it wasn't snowing in Texas, but I would totally do that If I lived up North. We just went to church and then hit the local deli, not very exciting. How did you guys spend your Easter?

You're probably just as likely to get good stuff out of one of these as one of the traditional units!

For the most part I agree. I wonder if these companies have a problem with the pods being filled with trash. After all, they are a lot cheaper than having dumpster brought out and picked up.

I'm wondering how they can keep coming up with new material inside all these storage units that haven't already been featured before. It's almost like that pawn shop reality TV show in that regard I suppose? At the end of the day, Iím not surprised that the producers ended up having to plant items in order to keep the show going...

I should think that it's the mode of operation of the business that determines what kind of customer make use of pods rather than the stationary storage units at a storage facility. People all have the same kind of things though! You're probably just as likely to get good stuff out of one of these as one of the traditional units!

Ugh, that's not the one that paints all of that nicely stained furniture, is it?

Yep, shabby chic. Paint it, distress it, overprice it. Seems to work for her.

I saw a blonde lady that resembles Jenny Grumbles from SW Texas. Did they move her to California for ratings?

New to Storage Auctions? / Re: What items to look for?

You should look out for features that often attract buyers like the good condition of the items, furniture pieces, electronics, automobiles, and anything sellable. If the storage unit gets opened up and all that you get to see are boxes and newspapers, you probably should not go for that one. However, what lies underneath the surface could sometimes surprise you.

If the locker goes cheap enough, sometimes its worth the gamble. Paid $5 for a unit that had 3 boxes, scattered newspapers and a 20" CRT TV. What intrigued me was on the side of one box, "Grandma's Keepsakes" was written. Gamble paid off. It was filled with Asian pottery and dolls. The other box contained Noritake China with about a hundred pieces. 30 or so pieces were quite rare. I've still got the set, just haven't gotten around to piecing it out.

Paid $5 for another unit. Just 2 boxes labeled "clothes." Turned out to be full of brand new designer clothing with the tags still on them. Even found a pair of Louis Vuitton high tops. Don't think I made any money on that unit, the wife kept everything.

Welcome Doc - there'll be no proctology jokes from me!!   :clap:

Me either... ;)   Think we scared the doc off? Wait a second. Wasn't Moe from SW Texas a doctor and a collector of the obscure?

What's this season 10?

Looks like it. I was on A&E's website and I saw a blonde lady that resembles Jenny Grumbles from SW Texas. Did they move her to California for ratings?
