Got my first Locker Today!! So Far So Good!
« on: November 18, 2011, 01:54:15 PM »
My 2nd attendance to a Storage Auction and Got 1 locker for 650.00 plus tax. 

went in the front of the locker but didnt go all the way back.  I can see art in frames all standing and stacked to each other. 

This person who used to own this locker was into art and commemorative plates and etc. 


I only found one in the front,  could be more in the back. 


I got paid 180.00 already for this commemorative  plate.  8.5 oz at sterling silver price / ebay price.

I sold a old steam cleaner for 40.00 right after the storage ended. 

got someone to come out and look at this parts washer for 45.00. 

Total $ 265.00 in 4 hours since the auction began.


The locker is still full and havent gone through yet. 

Whoo hoo.. 

heres a peeky peek.

That plate looks so cool I decided to use my 100th post commenting on it! Good luck with it, is that a COA beside it in one of the pics?

PS: Is your screen name a play off the movie 'Win a date with Tad Hamilton' or is that just your name?

This thread is OK where it is I think....it's a story.....!

Looks like you did well on this one; you jumped in at reasonable high price for someone buying his first locker and looks like you called it right.

Now, you can expect the next 49 buys will be average, not spectacular !

That is how I like it. Selling before you even get it loaded. 
Good luck with finding more goodies. Keep us posted.

yes it had a COA and yes thats my true name.   ;D


*coughs* I found a riding lawnmower in the back..  :o

 ;D

I just went through some boxes and trashed them.  Mostly family albums (its sad because the person who owned this locker died (she was old)  They had some specular wedding pictures from the 40's and again, it just truly sad. 

am i supposed to feel sad? 

Today, it hit me when they say you cant take stuff to the grave so it gets left behind for me to dispose. 

anyways.  Im halfway through. 

they have a dresser from 1889 that im going to look into tomorrow.
