went to a storage auction yesterday here in Evansville, IN and there were about 200 people there, about 6 x as many as the first one i went to last NOV. Alot of families were there, parents bringing their kids out like its a carnival.  It was funny hearing all the kids tell the parents to bid or not to bid.

15 units went up, only 1 locker even worth anything and it went for $1075 and it was probably a good deal.  Could tell that it was for an older couple.

The problem is, is that storage facilities or so overgrown compared to the poplutaion and the facilities are promoting $1 for the first month and all the people take the good stuff out and leave the worthless stuff in it to go to auction.

but, keepin on trucking.......

thought about it, but i did end up bidding on the one that went for $1100.  At fist sight, the unit was a gold mine...first thing in the locker was about 10-15 paintings, not worth alot but the frames were awesome, a antique chair, about 50 boxes that werent marked, antique clock, weed eater.

i could tell that it was a great locker because there was a phone book form about 20 years ago witting on a stack of boxes and you just dont see that.

but i could tell the guy bidding was not gonna loose that auction so i bid him up a little and gave up
