     Well, i really went at it today. There was an auction about an hour away with 5 units out in the boonies and everyone and their mother showed up. Problem is, no one brought any money. i picked up 3 units for $171 total. I just took the van out there because I didnt think i was actually gonna buy more than half the units so i'll go back tomorrow for most of the stuff. So far though I found 4 antique oil lamps. A book of old collectible stamps i need to check out. paint ball equipment, a couple bicycles, some baseball cards that look promising and random other stuff and i havent even broken through the surface yet. It was a great day. I'll update this post throughout the week.

Not to shabby for $177. I love old stamps, they're just a real pain to value.

ill probably take them to someone local that can just look at them and see if theyre rare or not. i can do that with baseball cards, not stamps

Stamps are tricky. You could have 2 stamps that look similar, but a slight variation could cause one to be worth millions more. Wish it was as easy as opening a Beckett guide to determine the value.

ALLL done processing finally. Looks like we'll do real well on this even though i think 75% was trash. Found a gold ring, an old elgin watch and the stamps, the rest is mainly garage sale items. New auction thursday. I'm only targetting small high $ units this time. warehouse is too full.

That's too funny. When I found my stamp collection, I also found gold rings and old Elgin watches among other things.

Anyone ever turn storage auction finds into art or make other projects?
