It was out in the middle of nowhere. I thought noone would show up. At the end there were probably close to 100 people there. It was outrageous. Oh well, theres always next time:)

Thats why you never go after the silly auction shows airs. You get what I call tv show buyers. Monkey see monkey do what ya saw on tv last night buyers.

It was horrible. Only one out of the 4 were worth bidding on. It was a full house of pretty ok stuff. I was willing to go to $500 or so. It went for $1250. I'll be going tomorrow to one that has 12 units. There is one Friday that has 30 units. Think I might have to send hubby to that one. I kinda just enjoy it. I love to get a good deal, but its ok to keep my money too;)

Would love to go to a good one around this area with 30 units! Luckily by auction day there may be 4-5 units when they advertised 12-15....and with those new guys coming on top of little units to bid on, it's just formula for a high bidding boring day....(well, it is kind of fun to watch the new-er guys bid these units up!)...

I can't go Friday, but with 30 units I have to send my guy. Just hoping there isn't like 500 people there lol. I decided not to go tomorrow. I'm focusing on Friday. Where do you live? Here in Houston there are several auctions going on everyday. I'm new, but not afraid to post. I just set my limit. I do notice that alot of people at these auctions will never throw a bid out. Think many just go to check things out?? IDK, I go to buy:)
