The Lounge / "Repurposing" Is that a word?
« on: July 30, 2014, 05:49:57 PM »
While on vacation I was in a Thrift Store and spotted a unique display case. Someone had made a wooden box, put some felt on the bottom and used a picture frame as the top. I have a lot of frames I may make up a few and use them at the flea market.

Any other ideas on repurposing items that seem to be in every unit that don't sell that well? 

The Lounge / Well Deserved Two Weeks Off
« on: July 30, 2014, 05:11:47 PM »
Hi everyone, I just finished a two vacation. Had some fun at the beach with the family. I can still hear my granddaughter saying "do again grandpa" as we were playing in the waves. My better half and I hit a few Antique Shops and thrift stores and picked up a couple of Christmas gifts for our son and daughter-in-law, a nice concrete yard decoration with USMC on it for him and a vintage cork screw for her. We started go to a Storage Auction but slept in that day instead   :34: . Ok I'm going to go and catch up on the post I missed. Hope everyone is having a great summer.

The Lounge / Any Old Fogeys Here?
« on: July 08, 2014, 07:55:06 PM »

Picked up an old Turn Table Saturday for a few bucks. Got it home, cleaned it up and put on one of my 40 year old albums. It sounded good (the crackle of the stylist as it moved across the vinyl) it brought good memories. Cant wait to show it to my granddaughter, she is 4. The look on her face when the music starts should be priceless.

Any old time Rock and Rollers here if so who is your favorite? Mine is The Allman Brothers Band

The "Other" Job / Tool Maker
« on: June 17, 2014, 05:34:18 PM »
What is a tool maker you might ask? An over paid machinist :67:. I have been doing machine shop work since 1980. To do something for that long you have to love what you do and I do. For the last 12 years I have been working in Research and Development. Pretty cool stuff. I program, setup and run CNC equipment and all the manual machines also. Its cool taking a chunk of metal and turning it into something that goes on a million dollar machine. My hours are 6am to 2:30 which leaves some time in the afternoon for my growing passion of BUYING AND SELLING BABY. Have I mentioned that I need to work on the selling part? :73: Well that's my other job.

The Lounge / The FairTax
« on: May 31, 2014, 12:07:53 PM »
Has anyone heard of the FairTax. Its a bill in congress that would get rid of the income tax (and the IRS) and replace it with a 23% sales tax. I went to their website and looked it over, seems reasonable.

Have you heard of it, what do you think?

General Storage Auction Talk / What do U-Haul with ?
« on: May 31, 2014, 11:52:09 AM »
I just bought an enclosed trailer, I have been borrowing a friends utility trailer and using the back of my SUV so I finally bit the bullet got me a nice one. I found it on Craiglist, its a 6 X 12 Haulmark with double rear doors and a side door. Pulls great.

I imagine with this group there are some pretty nice rigs out there. Lets hear about them.

Private Sellers / No activity in my zip code
« on: May 26, 2014, 06:18:38 PM »
I live in South Carolina and check my zip code regularly. I haven't seen any auctions. I would like to sell a personal unit to thin out my merchandise. Right now my merchandise is in my basement (boy is it ever) :93:.

With that said would this be the action plan?
Rent and fill a unit
Post the auction
If it sells great
If it don't sell, empty the unit?

Any help or advice will greatly appreciated.

My zip is 29611

Flea Markets / Flea Market Auction ?
« on: March 03, 2014, 04:43:06 PM »
Ok the House of Treasures is FULL. I was thinking about auctioning off my remaining merchandise at the end of a Flea Market trip or two. Has anyone ever done this? Is it legal? Any comments?

The Treasure Chest / The last Booth in the Antique Mall
« on: February 17, 2014, 11:57:16 AM »
Are you ever overwhelmed at the Antique Store? A lot of stuff right. When I do visit them I know its going to be at least an hour because I like to see everything, last weekend we stopped at one in the NC mountains, I've been collecting pictures of presidents for a couple of years. After passing on a few items early I get to the next to the last booth and there sits a 3 ring notebook with pictures of every president up to Nixon. My have to see everything attitude paid off this time. $14

Welcome to the Online Storage Auctions Forum / Hello Everyone
« on: February 17, 2014, 10:59:26 AM »
Hi everyone, I came across this forum the other day and really like all the subjects and input that everyone gives. I'm from South Carolina and my wife and I have been buying and selling for several years....mostly buying  :-[. We like storage auctions, both whole units and by the piece, but also do regular auction house and estate auctions also, plus the flee markets and yard sales ect ect. Well I feel like I'm getting long winded here so I'm off the hit some of the other subjects. Look forward to sharing thoughts with everyone.
