Didn't have enough cash
« on: May 14, 2013, 04:46:20 PM »
Went to an auction at the last minute. Was just out having lunch and saw it was happening in ten minutes about two blocks over.
 Only had $400 on me.

Opened unit and good stuff showing was:

JBL stage monitor.
Fishing poles
Music instrument cases
Banjo



Bid went slowly up to $225.      With bid, premium, tax and deposit I couldn't go any higher.
Cash only.     Figured even IF they let me run to bank the person bidding was a regular and would have gone way higher.
Plus, I'd have to rent a truck ($100) and would have to rent the 10x20 for a month since I have no help in the required 24 hours to empty, hire help since i got this bum shoulder acting up...
Figured all-in-all it would push $750-$1000 up font for me and I'm a bit tight this month because of the surgery ills rolling in.

Shoulda done it.

JBL is selling for $950 alone.
There were two nice violins.  Electric banjo. Mixing board. Locked gun case.  A safe that had stuff in it (locked).  Fishing poles were all high end.
Easily $3000+ in there and all easily sold stuff at that!  Agh!

Teaches me for only carrying  $400.

Did you determine that with your X-Ray vision?   ;D

No.

We did it the old fashion way. Tipped it back and forth and listened.

During or after the auction?  ;)

After.   I wouldn't dream of entering a unit before the auction is finalized!    ;)


At the second stop we got an advantage.  Opened door and half the unit spilled out, Boxes opened.
Then the auctioneer took a bunch of stuff out because he was worried it might fall on us as we looked.
