Wife got her first one today

Wife got her first one today
« on: October 20, 2011, 08:59:26 PM »
I had to work so I sent the wife to two auctions. First one ended up being 2 units but we had called earlier and it was 8. I doubt that 6 people paid between 8am and 10am  but oh well.

 Second one is where she got lucky. Nothing to flashy has a nice 32 inch TV in it, (Flat screen but not a lcd screen) a set of golf clubs, filing cabinent, walker, 7 foot christmas tree, coffee table with no glass. and a china buffet thing,

 She paid $70 for the locker and while nothing in there is a grand slam I think we can make all of our money back and a little profit.

Nice pic, hope you make profit. I whiffed on a locker with 20+ filing cabinets last week. Went for $60 bucks, they sell like hot cakes on craigs.

Not bad, your wife did well, she just made you a good profit. Especially if the glass top for the table is in there. Golf Clubs alone should get you from anywhere from half your money back to a slight profit, depending on if people in your area are buying golf clubs. Bag looks shocked though. Cheers

That is a decent locker for a nice price.  I agree with jrossjr that the clubs should fetch 1/2 your price paid or may even turn a profit.  It all depends on if a complete set, # of golfers in your area, etc.  The china cabinet is a iffy.  They don't sell well in my area.  Many of the regulars complain about it also since we have seen at least 1 in every 10 or so lockers for some reason this month.  The walker can sell.  Xmas tree's are iffy for me also.  Good luck to you.

  Filing Cabinets ?   when I won the locker full of them ( I wasn't bidding on it , it ended up being a package deal of 3 X 30 ft. lockers for $ 185 ) I couldn't give them away .
 The Fri.  I posted them on Craig's , a   nationwide mortgage company in the area closed there doors , and offered all there furniture, 4 floors full  for FREE ( No Computers ) and would assist You in loading it just show up Sat. between 9 to 4 .    >:(
  What friends didn't want , I ended up scrapping ( My locker was located next to a scrap yard LOL )

A 4 drawer cabinet can turn into $30 bucks pretty quickly here. But I am also in a military town, so items that people in other parts of the country will throw/give away (mattresses/box springs/old tvs) is a pretty fast profit here.

Those TVs weigh a freakin ton. My parents had one just like that but it finally kicked the bucket a few months ago. They called me to help move it and i said "Get real" and offered to pay for moving guys to come haul it to the corner for the garbage.

It doesn't always work, but I had bought a large 38inch tv like that one...I sat it on an old blanket and dragged it around..lol...but having to pick it up was a real pain.

Sold the last TV that size and two others and a broken washer right out of the locker.  ;D
Did not want to try and move it. Plus the store was full of them.

Looks like a good score. should do fine.
