New locker in the rain/storm

Went to the U-Store-IT auction today, and got my self a $150.00 locker.

This unit was screaming ARMY! lol as there was alot of of army stuff that we could see. I have justdone a quick looking thru and i have found tons of millitary and army stuff.

I also found a jar with 30 bucks in coins, so basicly i only paid 120 out of pocket for it.

Does anyone in here know what army stuff sells for? i mean uniform jackets, flashligths, awards, medals, ...etc. He also had his IRAK worn jacket in there with an award for the tour and duty.

This is the link to one of my neighbors store, he deals in old armed forces merchandise and he may even be in the mood to purchase if you have what he is looking for. Good Luck Mr. Andersen

Sorry  this link will probably be the one you want to use, He's know as G.I. Jim in this part of the world. I don't really know him just know of him and have waved a time or two.

Thanks, that might come in handy.

This guy i won a locker from today served in Irak and Afganistan, and his locker are full of army stuff.
Both new and used stuff. There must be some value to these things.
He was a SFC, and served on 3 different tours, LOL tons of awards are there in there also. And some police stuff, wonder if he worked as a police officer after the millitary.

Let me know if it works out with Jim, I haven't run across a military lkr as yet, how ever he might be the one to sell too.

Just got back from a army retail store in Arkansas.
He tried to lowball me with 200 dollars for 4 complete uniforms. Yeahhhh right, i could see the same uniforms that i had with me in his store selling for between $199 and $249 a set.
And i have 4 complete ones, talk about trying to scam.

Medals and awards was according to the guy in the store worthless, so was the training and instruction manuals for millitary vehicles.

Sounds like a good unit for $150. I think I'll start trying to hit the auctions on rainy days to see if the crowds are thinned out any.

Last time I went out on a rainy day there was still loads of people there.

That day it was about 15-20 people, where 75% was regulars. So it was not bad at all.
Not to long ago (2.5 months) we had auctions with 60-75 people showing up with strollers.
