jesusiou4life, just out of curiosity, why were all of those paintings in the storage unit? Did the unit belong to a dealer?

To be fair... there could have been 300 paintings in the locker  ???

Good point! Reminds me of the time one of the auction regulars won a 10 x 30 full of picture frames for $750. I might have the numbers wrong but I think he said they quit counting at 5,000. I said hell, $1 a piece that's $5,000! He said "nope". Sold like 500 of the biggest and best ones to a professional framer for $750 and took the other 4500+ to the dump!

I bought a 10X30 full of brand new picture frames. They were new but they were dated (Early 2000's) There were at least 5,000 of them in all. Paid $400 and got a free months rent from the facility. Put an add on Craigslist for $2,500. Sat on them for an entire month. Finally got an offer for $650. I jumped on it because the rent for the unit was $275 a month and it was due. A few hours after I sold them, a guy called me and wanted to buy them for $2,500.  :-[
