Storage Auctions

My first auction was a weird but good one!

After watching storage wars every day me and a friend decided to give it a try. Our first auction was last month in new York. There was 2 lockers up for bids we got the second one for 200 bucks! It was a disaster at first. Boxes and bags everywhere but we dug through it all. We found bags of every drug there is, pills and gun bullets but no gun. We threw away all the drugs and everything associated with drugs and we thought we weren't going to make anything on this unit. Digging further and finally clearing out this 10x10 filled to the top, we made 800 dollars in jewelry and so far 450 on eBay. It was a crazy experience but it was a great one and were going back next week. I'm praying to never get a unit with that many drugs in it again but hey, if it means making 1000 dollars I'll do it again.

Good for you.  But in the future keep the drugs.  You may need them to keep yourself sane in this biz!  ;D

Mikey, a score like that on your first locker can be good and bad thing. The good part - you know that it can happen. You're less likely to give up when you buy a bad unit in the future. The bad part - you'll be chasing that high for the rest of your life!

You might have to buy a lot of units before you find jewelry again.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of drugs did you find?

Hahaha thanks for the replies! Yeah I told my friend we won't get lucky everytime but we like to gamble and you never know! There was every drug there is that I know about lol. Weed, cocaine, crack, heroine and pills. Lots and lots of pills haha. Plus there was a dirty hot pot to cook it in, burned spoons and pipes. If I wanted to sell all that crap we would've made a hell of a lot more but that's not my thing. Straight to the garbage it went

Yeah, I hear you. It isn't worth the risk.
