Storage Auctions

No auction place is safe.

No auction place is safe.

Was just doing some other auction searches since was up early before the caravan today.  I came upon two new auction shows.  These are for unclaimed baggage at airports.  I had known about these types of auctions from father working a contract with TSA.  Had never been to one since closest major airport for me is Atlanta.  The airports normally send the luggage to a distribution center.  Sort of the same thing like what they do with all the confisicated items.  Anyways - I saw a "Baggage Wars" article on one of the storage auction sites.  Then I came upon this article for baggage battles: http://tvpressfeed.com/2012/02/baggage-battles-to-premiere-april-11-on-travel-channel/.

Well that sucks.
Wonder if the place here will change to auction style.
They just sell by weight. Pallet is weighed. There's the price. If more than one person wants it THEN it goes silent auction.

Friend if mine was into it but it's a gamble. 99% clothes obviously. He had lots of electric razors and hairdryers and the worlds largest collection of hotel shampoo. lol

Check out this place: unclaimedbaggage.com/

Same thing with storage auctions, except that we end up with lots of mattresses and TVs.
