Californian reporting on Florida Auctions
« on: March 19, 2011, 07:19:30 AM »
I have a friend who visited Florida for a couple of weeks and he told me about two auctions he went to.

These were in Gulfport. The first one was not a chain but rather a small independent. He didn't say the name.
There a 10 x 20 came up and looked good with two scuba tanks, a speargun showing as well as a good lookig frig and boxes. The auctioneer said the opening bid would be $200. There were 5 people there including my friend and no one bid so it was closed up. That one would have gone for $700 or more here in central CA.

The next one was a 10 x 30 and the auctioneer said the opening bid on that would be $300. One guy did that and got it. It had large wood tools (table,saw etc) and quantity of woods. That one would have gone high in CA too.

Then he went to Public Storage auctions and the crowd and prices were high. Just goes to show IF, repeat IF, you can find those small spots the odds go way up. ;D

Just thought I would post something so this thread wouldn't be so bare. It sat here for a day with no response.
