I looked but I couldn't find a thread to post pics of your finds. If there is one please let me know.

Anyway, I'm up for showing you some of my discoveries. Some are cool, others are downright creepy.

This could be a fun thread. So come on, share!

What most of my 3 units looked like. Yikes!

Hi all!

I've been lurking for a bit and feel it's time to come out of hiding. I wanted to make sure you were a welcoming bunch before doing so. You all are very nice!

I am new to the storage auction biz but not to auctions in general. I've always been fascinated with SA's but held jobs that prevented me from attending. That's since changed and I've been able to attend quite a few in the past couple of months.

I made my first purchase last month which consisted of (3) 5x10's from the same tenant. At first glance it appeared to be a treasure trove of crap. Many of the regulars scoffed at the units because they were filled with doll stuff. Patterns for clothes, body parts, magazines (tons of them). These units were thrown together and packed to the gills with all this stuff.

Being a newbie bidder, I'm sure the regulars thought I was a little whacked for considering purchasing them. But that's ok. I uncovered many nice treats like vintage West German Christmas ornaments (in beautiful shape), a $600 kiln, collectible doll patterns, unopened Elvis albums, boatloads of ceramic paints, etc. I'm not even a quarter way through sifting and I'm definitely going to make a huge profit. I'm so thrilled.

I've never been a stranger to physical labor and these units certainly are giving me a workout, but I can honestly say that it's nice to break my back for me rather than an employer. I think I love this business!

If you'd like, I can upload some pics of my finds. I've found some things that even give me the creeps!
